Game of Thrones season 8: Official runtime of each episode revealed

16 March 2019

HBO has confirmed that the first two episodes of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will be slightly shorter than the rest.

The final season begins on 14 April, with the final ever episode arriving on 19 May.

The final season of the hit HBO show is due to air in April, with fans of the show finally getting to see the first trailers for it last month.

Episode 3, which airs April 28, will be the longest of the season at 1 hour, 22 minutes.

Well, it's going to be longer than an hour and to make things even better, Miguel Sapochnik, the man responsible for overseeing "The Battle of the Bastards" and "Hardhome" is directing this episode too - he also has another episode in Season 8. The season's six episodes felt more like "six movies" than they did a set of TV episodes, he insisted, which many people took to be a reference to their length.

Thiem is through to the semifinals at Indian Wells for the first time, having reached the quarters once before in 2017. She broke Williams in the match's longest game that went to deuce five times when Williams' forehand went wide.

Episode Four will air on Sunday, May 5 and be 1 hour and 18 minutes long.

We still don't have any official episode titles for these final installments, so this information doesn't tell us much about the watch ahead.

"Collaborations with franchises like Game of Thrones are part of our DNA", said Alberto Uncini Manganelli, General Manager of Adidas Running.

Unless you're willing to stay up into the early hours of Monday morning, as season 8 will be simulcast.

A spokesperson for Sky has confirmed that Game of Thrones' final season will be airing at the same time as it is broadcast on HBO in North America.
