Season 7 of HBO's Game Of Thrones won't be airing until sometime next Summer but they've already specified that the 7th season will feature less episodes than previous seasons. 

According to HBO, the next season of Thrones will only be seven episodes long, which will almost certainly be followed up by another seven episodes in the 8th and final season. 

In addition to the shortened season, Game Of Thrones fans will also have to endure a longer wait until the 7th season officially begins, because the changing weather caused the crew to delay production. Thus, the show will return in Summer instead of Spring as they used to do.

“Now that winter has arrived on ‘Game of Thrones,’ executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”
