Winter has come and it's affecting more than just the realm. The creators of the hit HBO show have divulged that the show won't premiere in its regular month.
Let it be known that the best way to get information out of Game of Thrones show creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss is to put them on a Ufc podcast. In a recent episode, hosted by Jim Norton and Matt Serra, the duo revealed that Season 7 (and likely Season 8) won't be starting during its normal April premiere date.
The reason behind the move is simple, Winter Has Come.
"We don't have an air date yet, but next year will probably be a little bit later. We're starting a little bit later because, you know, the end of the season 'Winter is here,' and that means sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes anymore. So we kind of pushed everything »

Gotham, Season 2, Episode 22, “Transference”
Written by Bruno Heller
Directed by Eagle Egilsson
Airs Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox
Gotham’s second season finale brings all that came before together in a fun and exciting hour that sets off a new chain of events that are certain to make the upcoming season as much of a thrill ride as this season has been, if not more so.
Gordon’s heroic journey has been filled with despair and tragedy, which has been mostly his own doing. This season Gordon has been corrupted by Gotham City so much so that he has crossed the line from hero to straight out murderer. While Gordon’s path has been dark it has been an interesting one, of a man who has lost himself in trying to find justice in a system where it seemed impossible. While Gotham could’ve simply been about a man »

“Jon Snow is dead.”
The fans may have whipped themselves into a frenzy leading up to the sixth-season premiere of “Game of Thrones,” but the co-creators and showrunners of the Emmy-winning HBO juggernaut are slightly more blasé.
In an extensive interview with Variety a few weeks before the highly anticipated April 24 premiere, Benioff and Weiss couldn’t resist joking about the intense speculation over the fate of Kit Harington’s character, who was stabbed in a mutinous uprising at the Wall in last season’s finale.

“People are spending a lot of time looking at his eyes, thinking he’s not dead,” says Benioff. “We spent a lot of time … ”
Interjects Weiss, “…We spent a lot of money on his eyes.”

Back in September, Facebook debuted an innovative new feature called 360 Degree Video, which gives viewers the interactive experience of rotating a full 360 degrees around the original frame. The feature kicked off with a new video from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with Jurassic World debuting another clip a month later. Earlier today, the hit HBO series Game of Thrones has partnered with Facebook, Oculus Rift and Elastic, the company who designed their opening credits sequence, to debut a 360 Degree Video for the iconic opening of the show.
Of course, this video is a bit different from the actual show's opening, which is used to give fans a heads up about which parts of Westeros and Essos will be featured in that particular episode. Instead, this three-minute video explores this entire fantasy world, giving fans the chance to explore different parts of the universe created by George R.R. Martin, along with »
With just 17 days left until Season 6 of Game of Thrones debuts, the veil of secrecy swirling around the show is starting to lift. Entertainment Weekly reports that HBO has finally released the title for the Season 6 premiere, "The Red Woman", along with a brief description for the episode, which once again confirms that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is in fact dead. Take a look at the brief plot description for "The Red Woman" below.
"Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again."
Of course, this brief description makes no mention of "The Red Woman" herself, Melissandre (Carice van Houten). We last saw Melissandre in the Season 5 finale, returning to Castle Black after both Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and Jon Snow had been killed. We also saw her briefly in the trailer for this new season, telling Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) that the "great victory »
The lead-up to Season 6 of Game of Thrones has been the most mysterious and secretive yet, with the show's producers keeping plot details under lock and key. We have seen bits and pieces of footage over the past few months, but there is still so much we don't know about what will happen in Westeros this season. Entertainment Weekly recently spoke with actress Maisie Williams, who teased that these next episodes will help set up the end of the fantasy drama series.
"This year is so great because we've whittled it down. You can see the final storylines forming. We lost a lot of people last year and that makes it really exciting. There are fewer people on Arya's list. But there's also fewer people to fight for the throne."
Throughout Game of Thrones' five year run, fans always knew what to expect in the upcoming season, since they could always turn to the next book in author George R.R. Martin's novel series A Song of Fire and Ice. That isn't the case with Season 6, since it hasn't been announced when the author's sixth book, The Winds of Winter, will be published. But we know it won't arrive before the new season. With no new book to turn to for solace, fans have been wondering if Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) death in the Season 5 finale is actually real, or if he will be brought back to life somehow in Season 6. Unfortunately, Kit Harington keeps insisting in an interview with Digital Spy that Jon Snow is really dead, and fans should get used to it.
"​I was hoping that there would be an outcry of 'why?' and 'oh god, »
Author George R.R. Martin has confirmed that the next installment of his fantasy book series, on which HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is based, will not be released in time for the show’s season six premiere. Martin had fans on edge for months, being coy about the release timing for “The Winds of Winter,” the sixth novel in his “A Song of Fire and Ice” anthology. In a late night post to his blog Friday, the author got candid about the delay. “‘The Winds of Winter’ is not finished. Believe me, it gave me no pleasure to type those words. »
