It looks like seven is going to be a lucky number for Game of Thrones fans. The seventh season of the critically acclaimed HBO fantasy drama will have seven episodes, which is down from its typical ten episodes per season.

The cable network announced Monday that the production on this next season will start next month. It will also push back the premiere date.

"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," Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming said in a statement. "Instead of the show's traditional spring debut, we're moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule."

There has been a lot of discussions lately about when and how the show will end. Benioff and Weiss have said that they want to wrap the show up in about 73 hours. June's season six finale made 60 total hours so far for the show, which is a juggernaut in the ratings and online.

While it is possible that the show could go longer, it is likely that they will instead try to drag out the final few episodes by making the seasons longer. There also haven't been any official announcements about whether or not the show will be over after next year, which just adds to the discussions, according to Den of Geek.

"Game of Thrones" is not just a commercial hit for HBO, but also a critical one, receiving 23 Emmy nominations last week, including Outstanding Drama Series.
