The season 6 finale of HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones” has already aired, but it will apparently be a while before fans of the fantasy series will be able to see season 7.
Variety reports that production on the show is expected to be delayed by the weather.
“’Game of Thrones’ showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recently told the UFC Unfiltered podcast that due to winter’s much-anticipated arrival in the world of the show, production on Season 7 will be delayed in order to capture the chilliness of the change, even in some of the show’s hotter filming locations,” the story reports.
The season 6 finale, which premiered June 26, confirmed that winter has arrived in Westeros. Asked whether the series will be back in April, the producers said it won’t. The sixth season bowed on April 24.
HBO wasn’t commenting on a potential airdate for next season, but that’s not unusual. The channel didn’t announce this year’s premiere date until January 2016.
