Game of Thrones season 8 episode lengths are quite hefty

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.

But now HBO has confirmed a small - yet significant - new detail: just how long the final season is actually going to be.

Entertainment Weekly report that the network released the (North American) air dates and runtimes for each of Game of Thrones' six final episode.

The following episodes will air over the course of the next five Sundays (4/21, 4/28, 5/5, 5/12, 5/19), with each one increasing in running time, HBO announced on Friday.

By May 19, a.k.a. the season finale, fans will be able to soak up a full - and final - hour and 20 minutes of the last episode.

Similar to the debut episode, the 21st will air for 58 minutes. Episode 4 airs May 5 and will run 1 hour, 18 minutes, with Episode 5 following May 12 at 1 hour, 20 minutes. While the first two episodes will be around the average Game of Thrones hour, the series' final four episodes will be - as promised - roughly the same runtime as a short feature film. But with so much of the story still to wrap up, reports began during Season 8's production that most of the individual episodes would clock in near the 90-minute mark. Make sure you've cleared out your Sunday nights for the following dates, because it's unlikely you'll have time to do anything other than watching the feature-length episodes and talking about them for hours afterwards.
