The Times And Schedule For Every Episode Of The Last ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season – They’re Going To Be Like Movies!

We all knew the bad news that there would be only six episodes in the final Game of Thrones, but there is fantastic news today regarding the running times of those six episodes. They will be LONG. Like movie-length long! Get your popcorn and your bourbon ready because soon Sundays will be Game of Thrones movie night!

In Season 7 of Game of Thrones, the penultimate and final episodes were 71 minutes and 81 minutes respectively. Surpassing Season 6’s finale, The Winds of Winter, which was 69 minutes (nice). But HBO is upping the times for the final season.

In January, HBO CEO Richard Plepler teased the length of the final six episodes of Season 8. “It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie,’“ Plepler told Variety.

Another interesting revelation is the scheduling for Season 8. You’ll notice that there are no breaks in the middle of the season as HBO has done in the past. Just six straight weeks of your favorite characters triumphing, then getting cut down in a way you never thought possible. It will be a tremendous month and a half of television to see who (or what) will finally sit on the Iron Throne.

While we wait for Game of Thrones to return on April 14thm you can read some Game of Thrones fan theories on what could happen in the final season HERE.
