Game Of Thrones Season 7 Coming In July With Seven Episodes As Revealed By Cunningham
Game of Thrones season 7 will be showcasing seven episodes and thanks to Liam Cunninghan or Ser Davos Seaworth in the series, he slipped and hinted that he actually heard that Game of Thrones season 7 is bound for release in July 2017. Yes, we have heard that the premiere would kick off later this year but HBO has kept that detail under wraps until Cunningham spilled the beans.
As mentioned in a recent interview with The Independent, Cunningham said, "I've been disappointing various people around the world because it was meant to come out in April. It's July now, I think." While the producers are bound to stick to the seven-episode plan; maybe they would realize that they need one or two more episodes for season 8. The finals season is also scheduled to start probably by September.

Around 19 teams would be joining in which also include perks such as giveaways, co-branded merchandise, theme nights, ticket packages, and social media events all coming in July. These promotional offerings are not finalized yet but would vary by team. MLB is very excited to do this as the show appeals a lot to millennials; which is exactly the kind of crowd they would want to haul in.
