Since GOT season 6 ended, fans have been patiently waiting for HBO to announce the release date of season 7. HBO did state that the next season will arrive in summer 2017, but no specific release date was provided by them. However, now, it seems that Game of Thrones will arrive in June 2017.
Game Of Thrones Season 7 To Arrive In June 2017?
Recently, GamesRadar spotted that IMBd listed the first episode of Game of Thrones season 7 to release on June 25, 2017, but it has now been changed to a simple 2017 release date now. Avid fans of the series know that the fantasy drama television series has always premiered during April. Season 3, however, was the only season which premiered earlier than all of the other seasons, that was in March. Season 7 on the other hand, was expected to arrive much later than the rest of the seasons. The reason behind this was that there was a delay in the filming of season 7, and its productions started at the end of August 2017. Because of this, a June 25, 2017, release date would be fit for the seventh season.

However, one thing to keep in mind here is that the June 25, 2017, release date of Game of Thrones season 7 isn’t 100% accurate. IMBd isn’t the most reliable source to take information from when it comes to releasing dates of movies and TV shows. The site works just like Wikipedia in terms of updating, meaning that any user can edit the information. Considering the fact that the site holds a lot of data, this might just be a mistake. So fans shouldn’t expect Game of Thrones season 7 to arrive on June 25 until HBO officially confirms this. Judging from when the filming of season 7 begins, the next season will most probably release in June or July 2017.
