‘Game of Thrones’ final episode lengths, dates revealed


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 six episodes of the megahit show were originally rumored to be 90 minutes long each, but it’s now clear that only the last four episodes will be longer than the show’s usual runtime. The US-based cabler also revealed the debut dates for each of the last episodes, the first of which premieres on April 14 in the US, which means Monday, April 15 in Australia.

Earlier this month, HBO released a dramatic trailer for the final season, in which fans were given a glimpse into the epic battles and drama to come.

Former HBO chief Richard Plepler, who stepped down from his role in February amid the fallout from the AT&T-Time Warner merger, told Variety that the episodes are closer to “six movies” than television episodes, and that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had exceeded expectations with the final product.

“They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar,” Plepler said. “I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe. Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”
