Now Playing: Game Of Thrones Season 7 Recap: Everything You Need To Know For Season 8

We've always know this new season would debut later than the previous ones, but this is apparently the first time we're hearing about a July date.

Cunningham also confirmed there will be a special event to mark the season premiere and that, as rumored, it will only have seven episodes. He also said production will begin on Season 8 in September this year.

"There's going to be a launch and something special happening this year for the premiere. The bad news is, there will only be seven episodes and the final season starts again as far as I know in September," he said.

A new promo for Game of Thrones Season 7 aired recently on HBO and can be seen above. According to actress Emilia Clarke, Season 7 is going to blow your mind.

Although Game of Thrones may wrap up with Season 8, there is a chance that HBO will produce a prequel.
