‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale Will Nearly Be As Long As A Movie, Plus New Photos And Video
It was a tough pill to swallow when HBO announced that Game of Thrones would only be seven episodes in Season 7 and a mere six episodes in the final season. However, HBO eased the blow of only 13 episodes left in the incredible fantasy TV series by announcing that they were investing time and money into exploring four different GoT spinoffs. They are also helping by making some of the episodes in Season 7 much longer than they typically are.
HBO released the runtimes for the entire penultimate season and the final episode will run a near feature-length movie time of 81 minutes:
- Episode 1: 59 minutes
- Episode 2: 59 minutes
- Episode 3: 63 minutes
- Episode 4: 50 minutes
- Episode 5: 59 minutes
- Episode 6: 71 minutes
- Episode 7: 81 minutes
The final two episodes are nearly short feature films, at 71 minutes and 81 minutes respectively. Episode 7 of Season 7 will be the longest episode of Game of Thrones, surpassing Season 6’s finale, “The Winds of Winter,” which clocked in at 69 minutes. Forbes reports: “Overall, the average of these episode lengths is 63 minutes, 7 minutes longer than the previous record of 56 minutes in season one. All of this adds up to 7 hours and 20 minutes of show, as opposed to an average of 9 hours and 15 minutes in a normal season. But you can see that even with three less episodes.”
There are still 37 days, 7 hours, and 52 minutes until Season 7 of Game of Thrones premieres, so to hold you over we have some new GoT pics all the way from Spain. Movistar, one of the Spanish broadcasters for Game of Thrones, released three new promotional photos of Season 7 that feature Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, as well as Cersei and Jaime Lannister.
