Discover the cool (or hot!) way HBO released the next GAME OF THRONES premiere date!
The team behind Game of Thrones is nothing if not creative, and they had a lot of fun with a very sloooow reveal of the Season 7 release date. Seriously– It was watching a block of ice melt.
The hit TV show took to Facebook Live for the reveal. Originally, the video showed a giant block of ice and encouraged fans to comment “FIRE” or “DRACARYS,” on which occasions fire would burst up and melt the ice, bit by bit. After about 45 minutes of fire and melting, the date finally made an appearance.
Game of Thrones Season 7 returns on July 16, 2017.
We didn’t sit and watch the whole way through, but we probably checked back in on the page more often than was socially acceptable!
We have about 4 months to emotionally prepare ourselves. Get ready, folks!
