Game Of Thrones seventh season to be delayed

The seventh season of Game Of Thrones is facing delays in getting starter and will hit TV screens at a later point in the year, the series' longtime showrunners have confirmed. 

Speaking on the UFC Unfiltered Podcast, writers David Benioff and Dan Weiss warned fans that this time around there will be a delay and the show would not be back in its regular slot. 

Benioff said: "We don't have an air date, but we are starting a bit later because at the end of this season winter is here and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot."

Benioff also added that the show would have a shorter season, though he did not confirmed how many. 

He added: "We don't have a definite episode count, but each season will be a little bit shorter just because each year it takes longer and longer to shoot."

The show's sixth season, which has just finished its run on television, will be released on DVD on November 21st this year, a change from the previous routine which had seen the DVD coming out only a few weeks before the following season hit TV screens.
