"Game Of Thrones" Season 8 First Episode Runtime Revealed

Apparently, an HBO executive claimed that the first two episodes ran for about an hour, while the final four hovered closer to the eighty-minute mark.

The season finale will be the longest episode of the season and will match the runtime of season 7 finale "The Dragon and the Wolf", which also ran for 80 minutes.

Season 8 of Game of Thrones is nearly upon us and whilst we have heard various rumoured runtimes for Season 8, as yet we had received no official confirmation of this.

Game of Thrones will premiere its eighth and final season on HBO on Sunday, April 14.

Game of Thrones season 8: How long the first two episodes are

Paging through to Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21, the airdates for the first and second installments of Thrones' final season, the outlet discovered that the first episode will run for 54 minutes and the second will last 58 minutes.

While it's always possible the final runtimes will be a little different by the time of each episode's premiere, the revealed runtimes for Game of Thrones Season 8 promises a conclusion as sprawling and definitive as long-time fans of the series could dream of, with plenty of space for long-awaited, heavily theorized events like Cleganebowl. "They knew the bar was high". That's 2 full-length movies if you look at it that way and I am sure that length of time is all they needed or they would have taken more time to tell the story. "I guarantee there's going to be lots of surprises and shocking moments, but it's really very compelling stuff".

Game of Thrones Season 8 will even witness several much-awaited reunions between the cast and deadly war ever seen in the world of television. If we compare this to most shows on network TV, then the first two episodes are comparable to an hour-long show with no ad-breaks.
