“Game of Thrones” fans aren’t going to be happy with some news Ser Davos may have leaked recently: Winter might be coming later than usual.
In an interview with The Independent, Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth in the popular HBO show, said the show may not premiere until July:
“I’ve been disappointing various people around the world because it was meant to come out in April. It’s July now, I think. There’s going to be a launch and something special happening this year for the premiere. The bad news is, there will only be seven episodes and the [filming for the] final season starts again as far as I know in September.”
Nobody else affiliated with the show has confirmed that the new season will premiere in July, but HBO recently released a teaser for season seven to satiate fans’ appetites. It’s about seven seconds of a hand holding the sword called the Oathkeeper, which Jaime Lannister gave to Brienne of Tarth in season four — but it’s enough to get fans pretty hyped for the penultimate season.
As Ser Davos would say, “It’s better to wait for the right time than risk everything.”
