The HBO series usually premieres in April but, bosses said that due to the storyline, the seventh season air date would be pushed back.
Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss previously explained: "We don't have an air date yet, but this year will probably be a little bit later.
"We're starting a bit later because at the end of this season, 'Winter is here' – and that means sunny weather doesn't really serve our purpose any more.
"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."

Iain hinted that season seven could be longer than expected
He teased: "They are taking the length of time it takes to shoot ten episodes to shoot just seven this year and six next year.
"There are fifteen more hours left in Thrones as we understand it, but that may change, but that's as far as we know."
Iain continued: "I think the scale and size of the set pieces, the world that is being created it's just getting more and more extraordinary and they feel they need that time to shoot seven hours as opposed to ten."
