This Week in Sci Fi TV: Game of Thrones S7 Debut Date, and 8 More Things to Know

The wait for the seventh season of HBO’s Game of Thrones–currently one of the most-watched shows on television–has been long because of the extra time needed for production, but at least fans now have a target date for when it will return. GoT usually has its bow around April, but this year it will be on July 16th. The date was announced this week in a rather clunky Facebook live-stream with (apparently) dragon’s breath melting a block of ice that eventually–after several glitches–revealed the debut date. A teaser was also released, but it does not show any scenes from the upcoming season.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones will consist of seven episodes, three short of the ten each of the prior seasons had. And the eighth season will be around the same episode count and will wrap up the story that began on television back in 2011.
