Patient fans sat through a Facebook Live video of ice melting.

A slightly less cryptic teaser was posted shortly after. The new season premieres on HBO on July 16.

"There's only one war that matters - The Great War", the voice of Kit Harington's Jon Snow warns. I didn't see a premiere date. More than 100,000 fans tuned in to watch the event, but it was plagued with stops and starts and apparent technical problems.

And, for fans who were anxious that they would have to watch him die all over again, the 30-year-old seemingly confirmed that he would make it to season eight alive.

A brand new teaser trailer accompanied the date reveal, showing images of a spinning dragon's head and lines of dialogue.

While every season of Game of Thrones so far has had 10 episodes, season 7 will only have seven, with the eighth and final season having eight.

He dropped the huge hint as he revealed that more money had been spent on the show in order to break boundaries over the course of the next two series.

Fans and critics took the opportunity to make swipes at the marketing failure from HBO, which is normally so precise about how it rolls out "Game of Thrones" materials.

Emilia Clarke previously teased "another battle that's epic" and Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, revealed on Twitter past year that "nothing would prepare" fans for the upcoming season and added that "s*** gets REAL" after reading the script.

The forthcoming seventh season of the award-winning show will consist of just seven episodes, while next year's eighth season will be the last.
