Maisie Williams: "Just finished reading season 7," she wrote, "s--t gets REAL." In the course of five tweets, the actress went on to make the wait for the new season even more unbearable for fans of the show. "I'd start preparing yourselves now," she continued. "Scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this." "Game of Thrones" Season 7 is currently in production. The new season will be the show's penultimate. Last month, HBO confirmed its Emmy-nominated series would conclude after Season 8. The next season of the show is expected to debut in 2017 but will premiere later than usual.
