Watch the Game of Thrones season 7 release date reveal live

We might finally be about to see what happens next in Westeros – and when season seven will actually air


It looks like we’re finally about to learn some new details about the much-anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones, with HBO announcing a special Facebook Live broadcast that will hopefully shed some light on what to expect from the smash-hit fantasy series. 


Chief among the details fans will be desperate to find out will include the inclusion of any new characters (including Jim Broadbent’s new hire), the fate of old favourites, and the very basic – but very important – information of when the series will actually air, after being shifted to the summer from its usual April start.

Hopefully, answers will be forthcoming on the Game of Thrones Facebook page when the broadcast begins at 7.00pm UK time, and you can watch the whole thing on this page when the time comes.

UPDATE: the Facebook Live video is now available to watch below. It seems Thrones fans will have to ‘FIRE’ away to melt the block and reveal the all-important information.

Finally, winter (and info) is coming. 


Game of Thrones will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic this summer
