“We kind of pushed everything down the line so we could get some grim, grey weather, even in the sunnier places that we shoot,” he added.

As for whether the delay in production would push back the season premiere, Weiss said, “We don’t have an air date yet.”

HBO has not commented on how the production delay will affect the air date.
