Mark your calendars people, because "Game of Thrones" will be back on July 16, 2017. The showrunners released the first official poster of the new season earlier yesterday, and theories sparked endless conversations on social media about what will happen next. The poster was rather simple, showing only ice and fire, but that was enough to start the speculations over war with the dragons (fire) against the White Walkers(ice), and maybe even a union between Snow and Daenerys. Shortly after the release of the poster, the Facebook live started to announce the official premiere date.

'Game of Thrones' announced its return on a Facebook live

After months of waiting, "Game of Thrones" announced its seventh season premiere on a Facebook live. Thousands of people all over the world tuned in to watch a huge block of ice melting, patiently expecting the date of season seven to appear on their screens. The fans were asked to type in the words Dracarys and Fire, and each time they did so an enormous flame would hit the ice helping it to melt faster. It was a matter of almost an hour and then the secret was finally out: "Game of Thrones" returns on July 16th. It's a little later than everyone expected for the show to return, but at least now we can count down to a specific date.

The teaser of 'Game of Thrones' season 7

Along with the release of "Game of Thrones" official date, came a teaser of the new season.

It was a short video showing dragons made of stone crushing to the ground, with a powerful voice over, consisted of many "Game of Thrones" characters. We hear Daenerys Targaryen admitting the dark history of her family and the actions of her father, the Mad King, the voice of Robert Baratheon warning that he will kill every Targaryen that comes his way, and Cersei being proclaimed the new queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

And that's not even the half of the teaser.

In addition, Balon Greyjoy announces that the Iron Borns will take what it's theirs, there is a flashback of the red wedding, where we hear Catelyn Stark screaming and Olenna Tyrel basically admitting to her granddaughter the murder of King Joffrey. Daenerys makes a great point at the end, saying that all the Houses might want the throne, but it means nothing if they always fight each other, especially now with the White Walkers marching to the Wall. Then the dragons collapse to the ground, and we hear Ned Stark warning about the threat of the White Walkers, along with Jon Snow's voice confirming that only the great war matters now. After all, winter is finally here.

At the end of the teaser, there was another surprise for the fans. Liam Cunningham, the actor who plays Davos Seaworth on the "Game of Thrones", appeared to congratulate the fans for melting the ice and releasing the season seven date, and goes on to assure the fans that the wait will be worth it. And we couldn't agree more.
