The next season’s plot is still under wrap but it is certain that the story will continue after Season 6. Heavy listed down some of what to expect on the upcoming season.
1. The release date for Season 7 might be on April 2017. Notably, the show aired its previous seasons between late March to April so the speculation is plausible.

The website noted that two seasons might be essential to wrap up the story. Furthermore, “Game of Thrones” showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed on Variety that the show is heading to its “final lap.”
“I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap,” said Benioff. “That’s the guess, though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at,” he added.
3. The production team will shoot Season 7 in castles near Spain. The producers are also planning to film battles scenes within the location, reports Watchers on the Wall. According to the website, the team will not go back to Girona because the negotiations did not work out as planned.
