Now, the upcoming season premiere's runtime has been officially revealed, as reported by EW, the apparent plug for Game Of Thrones exclusives. That means we now have HBO's official runtime descriptions for all six episodes.
For now, we just know that the first and second episode of Season 8 will have tame lengths. Paging through to Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21, the airdates for the first and second installments of Thrones' final season, the outlet discovered that the first episode will run for 54 minutes and the second will last 58 minutes.
The first episode of Game of Thrones aired on April 17, 2011 and the final episode of the show is scheduled to be aired on May 19, 2019. The report stated that while Episode 1 and 2 would be around 60 minutes each, the next four will be approximately 80.
Many fans are already discussing these run times with a bit of negativity as it seemed like the episodes may be even longer based on previous comments and rumors.
Our anticipation for the final season has reached fever pitch.
Total, the runtimes equal six hours and 50 minutes, which Newsweek pointed out is still shorter than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Barrie reveals that he joined the show during the fourth season, but the task got bigger with fifth season's episode "Hardhome" and has only gotten bigger since then.
For those who prefer a classic black runner, there's a Night Watch option, as well as a dark-grey Stark option with a "Winter is coming" heel tab.
Although there are no direct spoilers for Season 8, please turn back now if you wish to not find out any runtimes for the final season of Game of Thrones.
