Game of Thrones Final Season Episode Runtimes Are Shorter Than You Thought

15 March, 2019, 21:52 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

Heading into the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones, there had been rumors that the six Season 8 episodes would all be feature-length, spanning roughly 80 minutes.

Former HBO chief Richard Plepler, who stepped down from his role in February amid the fallout from the AT&T-Time Warner merger, told Variety that the episodes are closer to "six movies" than television episodes, and that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had exceeded expectations with the final product. What can we take from this? However, it does prove that the majority of the final episodes will be as long or a little longer, than the show's previously record-holder: Season 7's finale, "The Dragon and the Wolf", which clocked in at 79 minutes and 43 seconds.

From that point, the lengths are edging closer to film length.

Here's when each episode will air and its estimated length. The longest will be episode three at 82 minutes, followed by episode four at 78 minutes and the final two episodes both clocking in at 80 minutes apiece.

Following the release earlier this month of a trailer that unsurprisingly served to amp up fan excitement even more for season 8, here without further ado are the details for each of the season's episodes. "When brands and television series alike are able to move beyond their primary platform and spill into popular culture, we see inspiration".

After all these years of fervently following HBO's fantasy series, Game of Thrones season 8 is going to end with a bang - a very prolonged one.
