‘Game of Thrones’ Final Episode Lengths, Dates Revealed

The final season of the hit HBO show is due to air in April, with fans of the show finally getting to see the first trailers for it last month. The season's six episodes felt more like "six movies" than they did a set of TV episodes, he insisted, which many people took to be a reference to their length.

We knew from a previous leak that the last few episodes would be way longer than usual, but to see HBO go all-out for the finale is heartening - after all, Game of Thrones season 8 needs to give us an huge amount of closure after all these years. Game of Thrones final episodes begin next month.

The final six episodes of the megahit show were originally rumored to be 90 minutes long each, but it's now clear that only the last four episodes will be longer than the show's usual runtime. Of course, the most important thing here is that the episodes are the right length - enough for character moments, those epic battles we're all waiting for, and without bulk for the sake of bulk.

Episode 4 - May 5, 1 hr.

We still don't have any official episode titles for these final installments, so this information doesn't tell us much about the watch ahead. The shortest episode of the season will be the premiere at 54 minutes, with the second episode following close behind at just two minutes under an hour at 58 minutes.

Well, it turns out that isn't quite the case - but there will be a fair few longer episodes in Game Of Thrones' final run.
