You've been WAITING... but we now have NEWS about the THRILLING upcoming season of 'Game of Thrones'!!!
HBO has finally announced the premiere date for "Game of Thrones" Season 7, much to the relief of the show's followers who lit Twitter on fire after tuning into a glitch-filled Facebook Live. The new season will premiere July 16.
The announcement came after a bumpy attempt to make the premiere date reveal a bit of an event.
HBO had arranged to break the news during a Facebook Live on Thursday afternoon.
Eager fans who tuned in were greeted by a block of ice and instructed to leave comments -- specifically the word "fire" -- in order to melt the ice and reveal the premiere date.
At one point the stream had over 100,000 viewers. Nearly 15 minutes into the stunt, the live stream cut to black without revealing when the series would return.
Of COURSE, FANS on Twitter had alot to say about the GLITCH!
And the ice block melting video just ended with a cut to black! Very Sopranos, HBO— James Hibberd (@JamesHibberd) March 9, 2017

Facebook Live was born the day BuzzFeed exploded a watermelon with rubber bands and died when #GameOfThrones couldn't reveal premiere date— Donna Dickens (@MildlyAmused) March 9, 2017
