‘Game Of Thrones’ Will Return in July, Claims Liam Cunningham

While HBO's hit series Game Of Thrones has traditionally returned in April, the show is set to return in July this time according to actor Liam Cunningham.


It’s been known for a while that Game Of Thrones Season 7 will be airing a bit later than usual on HBO, but no official return window was set beyond a promise that the show’s penultimate season would arrive in at some point in the summer. Now, Liam Cunningham (who plays the fan-favorite Ser Davos Seaworth) has given us a clearer picture by claiming that the series will make its return this July.

In a recent interview with The Irish Independent, Liam Cunningham took a moment to explain when the penultimate and final seasons are going to return.

“I’ve been disappointing various people around the world because [Game Of Thrones Season 7] was meant to come out in April. It’s July now, I think. There’s going to be a launch and something special happening this year for the premiere. The bad news is, there will only be seven episodes and the final season starts again as far as I know in September.”

Those of you who were hoping that Game Of Thrones Season 8 would air a bit closer to Spring are probably a little disappointed right now, but it’s not all that surprising considering that the show’s production cycle was already delayed. At least Westworld Season 2 should should tide HBO fans over during the wait for the final season.
