So far, HBO has kept most details about “Game of Thrones” Season 7 under wraps, but fans are finally about to get a due date.

The premiere for the highly-anticipated season will be announced in a Facebook livestream (below) at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. The page also reveals the show’s new tagline, “Fear is for the winter.”

The announcement follows Wednesday’s reveal of the first official poster for the seventh season at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

As the network announced last year, the shortened, seven-episode season of “Game of Thrones” will premiere later in the year than usual in order to accommodate the show’s shooting schedule. Due to the show’s new winter setting, the HBO fantasy epic began production later in the year.

Season 7 directors will include Mark Mylod, Jeremy Podeswa, Matt Shakman and Alan Taylor.

Executive producers on the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; producers, Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney.
