‘Game Of Thrones’ Just Made Fans Stare At A Block Of Ice For An Hour To Get Show’s Premiere Date
Considering the length of time between seasons and the glacier's pace that George R.R. Martin has set for finishing his next book, it's probably not a good idea to tease fans like this.
Game of Thrones announced its Season 7 premiere date today on Facebook by live stream, in which a block of ice slowly melted with the date encased inside. Yes, GOT literally made its fans watch ice melt to find out when the show would be back.
The approximnately 130,000 viewers could make it melt faster by typing the word "fire" into the comments repeatedly, triggering a flamethrower (or dragon, not sure) to melt the ice.
It still took forever, and then the feed abruptly stopped before the reveal, then came back on with more fire, then stopped again. Finally, July 7, 2017 was revealed.

So four more months until the seven-episode Season 7 -- and the fact that it's beginning in July is a testimony to GOT's invulnerability in the ratings. Who watches TV in July? GOT fans do.
If you want to know spoilers and speculation on the new season, go here. I prefer to be surprised, so I'll give you only one: apparently, Gendry returns.
