HBO has reportedly confirmed that the next season of Game of Thrones will return in the Australian winter of 2017 — and, as many were expecting, it'll be a short one.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the seventh season of George R. R. Martin's fantasy will air during the American summertime. That's slightly later than usual, although not unsurprisingly so given that the network had already indicated things would be slightly delayed.
HBO also announced that the season will be seven episodes long, as opposed to the 10 episodes each season has featured until now. Iceland, Northern Ireland and Spain will be used for the season, which is an indication of what fans can expect going forward. After all, the last time Game of Thrones was shot in Iceland was when Jon Snow adventured north of the Wall.
