GAME of Thrones will return to UK screens in July, its bosses have confirmed.

The seventh series will air in the UK on July 17, 2017 – a day behind American viewers. The seventh season, comprised of just seven episodes, will be the penultimate series.

Fans watched an online video for more than an hour to see a huge block of ice being melted to reveal the air date, before a new trailer was also released.

In it, Jon Snow says: “There is only one war that matters. The Great War. And it is here.”

According to the show’s creators, the forthcoming season promises a “brutal, bloody and wintry return to Westeros”.

It has already been suggested that the season will include a battle to match the intensity of season six’s critically-acclaimed [and brutal] Battle of the Basterds.
