Looks like things are going to get crazier in the Game of Thrones season 7, which is all set to debut on July 16, as Kit Harington has suggested so.Sharing some insightful details about the show, the 30-year-old actor, who plays Jon Snow, told ABC News that it is “ much grander” than anything fans have seen before.

“Season 7 has so much more ambition,” the Brimstone star said, adding “There are less episodes this year, so they spent more money on those episodes. So, the whole scale of it is up.” The new season will only feature seven episodes instead of the usual ten as the show nears its end.

With the last season expected to air next year, The Seventh Son star admitted that he really wanted the drama to go out “with a bang” and “that has to happen at the end of Thrones, this season and next season.” The White Walkers are expected to have an even bigger part in this season.

Turns out, the new Game of Thrones teaser poster that popped online earlier this week was just the tip of the iceberg. HBO announced July 16, 2017 as an official return date for the much-awaited season during a Facebook Live event that saw more than 160,000 viewers watching ice melt during three separate broadcasts as the stream suddenly cut out twice.

The video showed a block of ice that viewers had to melt by commenting “Fire” to reveal the date. Back in July, showrunners D B Weiss and David Benioff said the reason the show was delayed was due to logistics.
