It has just been revealed that “Game of Thrones” is wrapping up the filming of its latest season. Maisie Williams was reportedly in Canada last week still completing her scenes with a character who has been confirmed to return in the show. With the production nearly done, it seems like the show is eyeing to premiere this July after actor Liam Cunningham accidentally gave away the probable release date.

Just a week ago, young actress Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Arya Stark in “Game of Thrones”, posted a video on her official Instagram, giving fans a peak of what she was currently up to. She was actually shooting scenes for the said show in Canada. Michael Jorgenson, chairperson of Alberta Media Production Industries Association confirmed the shoot and revealed he spent the weekend with the director of photography of the said HBO series at the Banff National Park located in Alberta.

Jorgenson further revealed that the set was shot in Canada because Alberta turned out to have the biggest wolves in the world. With that statement alone, Jorgenson has confirmed that Williams is filming scenes with wolves and in the world of “Game of Thrones”, big wolves meant direwolves. It seems like fans will clearly be seeing the return of one of the beloved Stark’s direwolves, Nymeria, who has not been seen for a while in the series since Arya drove it away to save its life.

With the production of “Game of Thrones” Season 7 reportedly nearing completion, fans are starting to wonder when the official release date will be announced since HBO have only revealed a brief teaser of the new season. But Liam Cunningham might have just given away the probable release date when he recently talked to The Independent, expressing his disappointment that the show will not come out in April but in July instead. Unfortunately for him, the fans quickly caught on with the slip.

Though the July premiere has yet to be confirmed, Cunningham suddenly denied the sudden revelation saying, “Davos don’t know the date. Mongo only pawn in Game of Thrones.” This may have just proven that “Game of Thrones” Season 7 will most likely debut this July given that Cunningham tried to cover it up with a joke. Aside from that, he also further revealed that the filming for the final season will kick off this September after the new season has aired.
