We finally know when winter is coming.

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 will premiere on July 16, 2017.

Winter is here.

Snow my God!

“Game of Thrones” also released an official teaser featuring quotes from past seasons. It ends with Jon Snow saying, “There’s only one war that matters, the Great War, and it is here,” and the appearance of a big, blue, White Walker-looking eye.

HBO made the announcement Thursday during a torturous Facebook Live segment where they hid the news in a giant ice block. Fans had to comment “Fire” to help get the ice to melt.

The Facebook stream was dark and full of terrors. The block was still intact when multiple streams died.

And Twitter noticed. 

Luckily, a video finally worked, and the wait was over.

 

The news was teased earlier with a video that warned, “Fear is for the Winter.”

The announcement comes right after the release of the first poster for Season 7, which is all about fire and ice. 

But what does it all mean? Is the Wall coming down? Will Jaime kill Cersei? And what is going on with those “leaked” photos? Or those other supposed leaks?

Bran himself, actor Isaac Hempstead Wright, recently told The Huffington Post that some of your fan theories out there might be right after all. So keep them coming!

”Fear is for the Winter.” Hype is for right now.
