Game of Thrones may not be back next April -but later in 2017, according to showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
“We don’t have an airdate yet,” the pair said in a podcast with UFC.
“We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ — and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim, grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.”
The news comes on top of questions about the episode count, with word there are just 15 more episodes to come over two seasons.
