April is the month of Game of Thrones – that has been the case in four of the show’s six seasons (and one of them premiered the last day of March) – no longer.
That’s right, today David Benioff and Dan Weiss, appeared on the UFC Unfiltered Podcast with hosts Jim Norton and Matt Serra and revealed that, next year, the season would start much later, and it’s not just to make us suffer, no.
It’s because filming is getting delayed so they can, you know, shoot in the middle of winter. Sansa did tell us that winter had arrived, and now the people in charge seem to be confirming that’s the case, and the repercussions will be felt not only in the North.
Good thing Daenerys has dragons, right?
Benioff also confirmed that there will be two more seasons of the show, and that they’ll be shorter than usual, though he didn’t specify how many episodes that meant.
Finally, for those of you worrying, both Benioff and Weiss reaffirmed that they know how the show is going to end, and that, if needed they could write the final episode right now. They also answered one of fans biggest questions, when they stated that Gendry is still rowin.
Poor Gendry. We hope he gets to make an appearance in the final two seasons, and hopefully, get out of that boat.
Game of Thrones is set to return to HBO next year.
