The premiere date for "Game of Thrones" season 7 has been unveiled - and yes, it is later than most fans have anticipated.

The exact date for the premiere had been shrouded in mystery after HBO executives announced last year that the seventh season will not be premiering in the spring, as it usually does.

However, this build up a lot of anticipation from the fans, and the long wait finally ended with the unveiling of the premiere date for the seventh season.
