season 7 news
Season 7 of Game of Thrones was announced by HBO on 21 April 2016. as opposed to previous seasons, the seventh season will be shortened to seven episode, due to the smaller amount of story content remaining, as well as the increased production values and time required to film episodes involving larger set pieces than in previous seasons.
Like the sixth season, Season 7 will be based on an outline of the two final, presently-unpublished novels in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. Filming will commence in September 2016 and continue through February 2017, for a summer 2017 release.
El Punt Avui reports that Season 7 will not return to Girona for filming. However, Fresco Films has been scouting Spain for several locations containing "castles." There have also been reports of a significant number of battles taking place in and near these castles. The Spanish locations have been confirmed so far are: Seville, Caceres, Almodóvar del Rio, Santiponce, Zumaia and Bermeo.
Producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have confirmed that season seven will be both filmed and released later than past seasons of Game of Thrones. This is mainly due to the desire to accurately depict the winter that now grips Westeros.
