HBO's fantasy-drama TV series, "Game of Thrones,", needs no introduction; undoubtedly, one of the best shows of all time and surely a fan favorite. The show's seventh season will air later than expected, and as a consequence, we'll have to wait at least until June for its premiere. This is happening because the cast and crew needed to wait until winter to shoot most of the new season's episodes, confirming that the Long Night of Winter is finally hitting Westeros and the known world.

According to UFC Unfiltered, the showrunners explained that: " [...] 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 anymore.

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”. The new season will consist of only seven episodes, contrary to previous seasons which had a standard ten-episode run.

First official poster of Season Seven of 'Game of Thrones'

The official first poster of season seven of "Game of Thrones" is here, and it hints us that there will be fire and ice. Compared to some of the previous series' posters, it doesn't give much away. Will there be a war of Fire And Ice? Will Daenerys and Jon finally meet? Does it refer to Snow and Khaleesi, or the dragons and the White Walkers? We still have so many questions about it, but fans' theories might come alive on our screens this summer.

What this war (or maybe union) of fire and ice will be all about is not a sure thing yet, but we know we've been waiting for it for so many years!
