'Game Of Thrones' season seven delayed

'Game Of Thrones' season seven delayed

The air date for season seven of Game Of Thrones has been pushed back. 

Typically, each new series of the HBO show has started in April, but that will not be thecase with the penultimate series, NME reports.

As Digital Spy reports, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have revealed that the new series won't begin until later in 2017. 

"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 that sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes any more," they said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast.
