"Game of Thrones" fans have a long wait ahead of them before Season 7 airs. Usually, viewers have a year-long wait between seasons, and in the past years, the show has often premiered new seasons between March and April. But this time around, the wait is going to be much longer, so as to include the arrival of winter in Westeros.

During a recent appearance on a UFC podcast, "Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also added that they do not have an air date yet. "We're starting a bit later because, you know, at the end of this season, winter is here, and that means that sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes any more. We kind of pushed everything down the line so we could get some grim, gray weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot," the showrunners said, according to TVLine.

Fans aren't pleased with this delay, as rumours indicate that Season 7 will be aired only in the second half of 2017. "Have they ever hear of something call CGI? We already being torture by GRRM slow ass writing now we have to wait longer for the show too?" noted one fan who is clearly not happy with the delay in "The Winds of Winter," the next instalment in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R. R. Martin.

Season 6 of "Game of Thrones" ended with the deaths of several characters, and before the series winds up a lot more heads are going to roll. But one character who is sure to die is Cersei Lannister, and according to Maggy's prophecy, she'll be killed by one of her brothers.

Find below the prophecy:

Cersei: When will I wed the prince?
Maggy: Never. You will wed the king.

Cersei: I will be queen, though?
Maggy: Aye. Queen you shall be... until there comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear.

Cersei: Will the king and I have children?
Maggy: Oh, aye. Six-and-ten for him, and three for you. Gold shall be their crowns and gold their shrouds, she said. And when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.
