Game of Thrones delayed until summer 2017 - and it will be less episodes...

It's long been rumoured that Game Of Thrones would feature fewer episodes in its final two series, with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirming that the series had just thirteen episodes left. But now it has been made official; HBO have announced that the seventh season of the critically acclaimed show will air in the summer of 2017.

Collider have confirmed that it will also be seven episodes' long (suggesting that the final season would be six) and that production on Game of Thrones Season 7 will be based in Northern Ireland, with additional filming taking place in Spain and Iceland. Winter' finally came in the season six finale and the show will need to film in colder locations; the change in filming through winter 2016/17 will help facilitate that.

We expect it will be some time before we get more definitive news on the next season, so perhaps now is the time to crack open the season 1-5 box sets as we settle in for a 12-month wait...
