HBO releases official running times for Game of Thrones final season


After weeks of speculation and even some false reports, HBO cleared it up for Game of Thrones fans.

Way back in November 2018, we not only found out that the final season of Game of Thrones would be in April, but we found out that each episode will run over an hour.

Game of Thrones director David Nutter confirmed that all six episodes would be “dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure.”

Now we have the exact lengths of each episode from HBO, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Episode 1: April 14 at 9 p.m.
54 minutes

Episode 2: April 21 at 9 p.m.
58 minutes

Episode 3: April 28 at 9 p.m.
82 minutes

Episode 4: May 5 at 9 p.m.
78 minutes

Episode 5: May 12 at 9 p.m.
80 minutes

Episode 6: May 19 at 9 p.m.
80 minutes

Some things to note, four of the six episodes will run over an hour – that’s well over the typical length of these episodes.

Episode 3 is reportedly the Battle of Winterfell, and it will be the longest episode of the six.

And be sure to finish your Easter dinner early, because Game of Thrones won’t be skipping a Sunday just because Jesus rose from the dead. Jon Snow did that, too.

But I’m happy that it seems as though we are getting super-sized episodes for the final season, especially if they can’t give us ten episodes like most of the other seasons.

They may not be movies, like what HBO’s former chairman and CEO Richard Plepler originally stated, but it’s something extra for fans.

Are you happy with the episode length? Let us know in the comments.
