‘Game of Thrones’ Final Episode Lengths, Dates Revealed

Following the release earlier this month of a trailer that unsurprisingly served to amp up fan excitement even more for season 8, here without further ado are the details for each of the season's episodes. HBO has officially announced the air dates and runtimes for the final season, and the last four of these six episodes have been confirmed for movie-length runtimes at well over an hour each. 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.

Similar to the debut episode, the 21st will air for 58 minutes. The episode on the 28th is the first one from the new set to extend beyond 60 minutes, at an hour and 22 minutes.

After all these years of fervently following HBO's fantasy series, Game of Thrones season 8 is going to end with a bang - a very prolonged one.

Zion Williamson Puts on a Show in Classic Duke-UNC Rivalry Game
For what it's worth, the last single-season three-game sweep in this rivalry came in 2002, with Duke easily winning all three. It's also the same floor where Virginia lost a second-round game as a No. 2 seed to seventh-seeded Michigan State in 2015.

Episode 4 - May 5, 1 hr. However, it does prove that the majority of the final episodes will be as long or a little longer, than the show's previously record-holder: Season 7's finale, "The Dragon and the Wolf", which clocked in at 79 minutes and 43 seconds.

If it wasn't already obvious to you that there's quite a lot of excitement building about Game of Thrones, perhaps this - the news that it's now reached a point where it's inspiring special collections of Adidas trainers - will spell it out for you.

Episode Five will air on Sunday, May 12 and be 1 hour and 20 minutes long.
