‘Game of Thrones’ will soon be back for good as it returns for the last time for its final season in April this year. The makers are hence leaving no stone unturned for its publicity and teasing its fans with information.
The latest to be revealed by HBO is its hit series’ runtime for each episode. While every season has had 8-10 episodes, most of them short of an hour, some stretching till an hour, this time it’s going to be a tad different. See character posters released earlier this month.
HBO revealed that there will only be 6 episodes in place of a bigger number but that the timing of each will be lengthened than the previous times.
These are the timings revealed:
Season 8 Episode 1: 54 minutes
Season 8 Episode 2: 58 minutes
Season 8 Episode 3: 60 minutes
Season 8 Episode 4: 78 minutes
Season 8 Episode 5: 80 minutes
Season 8 Episode 6: 80 minutes
Apparently, season 3 will have the ‘Battle of Winterfell’, one of the most-awaited episodes since we started watching the series and understanding the game plan. Thus, season 3 will be an hour long, with each episode post that increasing in time.
