Last August Foxtel said the show pulled in more than 1 million viewers per episode in Australia, but the series is also pirated at record rates.

Show creators David Benioff and DB Weiss told Entertainment Weekly in 2016 that they wanted to make the series finale as spectacular as possible.

This year-long gap will be the longest wait ever for fans desperate to know which character ends up in the coveted Iron Throne. While some episodes may be longer than usual, once again we're hearing not to expect feature-length episodes throughout the season.

Aside from directing, Benioff and Weiss will be writing the new season, alongside Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. The Season 7 is co-executive produce by George R.R. Martin, Vince Gerardis, Guymon Casady, and Cogman.
