Winter is Here
Show writers David Benioff, and D.B. Weiss announced earlier this month that winter finally arrived in Westeros. Weiss also stated that the sunny weather won't be much of a use for them. "We're starting a little bit later because, you know, then end of the season 'Winter is here,' and that means sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes anymore," Weiss said.
"So we kind of pushed everything down the line so we can get some grim grey weather, even in the sunnier places we shoot," he added.
