We could all be getting a lot more Game of Thrones in the show’s final season than we expected, according to fan site WinterIsComing.net! The website recently reported that they’ve uncovered the runtimes for each of the six episodes in the eighth season, by using a sneaky trick on HBO’s programming schedule.
According to the schedule, the runtimes for the final six episodes of Game of Thrones are:
Episode 801: 54 minutes
Episode 802: 58 minutes
Episode 803: 60 minutes
Episode 804: 78 minutes
Episode 805: 80 minutes
Episode 806: 80 minutes

Episode three of the season is set to feature an impressive battle scene between the living and the dead in Winterfell, which rivals the iconic battle in “Battle of of the Bastards”. According to the website to date, the longest episode of Game of Thrones is “The Dragon and the Wolf,” the season 7 finale. That episode ran for an hour and 20 minutes – and impressively, we’ll be getting two of these beasts in the final season!
So what do you think of this news? I’m hoping that the last two episodes will be played on the big screen! Let us know in the comments below.
