Game of Thrones will Return in the Summer

“When is Game of Thrones coming back?” is a question that constantly nags fans of both the HBO hit series and George R.R. Martin’s novels. Neither group wants to wait a second longer than absolutely necessary.

With only two seasons left, Game of Thrones still has many mysteries and secrets left to dangle in front of theory-embracing fans.

HBO confirmed today that Game of Thrones’ seventh season would premiere on July 16 and debuted the first teaser for the new season.

The seventh season will also be the second last for the series. Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff previously confirmed they want to end the show after the eighth season.
