Game Of Thrones Season 8's First Two Episodes Aren't Extra Long

The eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones premieres on April 14, and following its long-awaited first trailer, HBO has unveiled a behind-the-scenes look on just how the notable actors in the series are outfitted into their characters' signature aesthetics such as the Night King, White Walkers, the Children of the Forest and more.

The last three episodes are the longest with the fourth episode and 78 minutes and the final 2, episode five and six will be 80 minutes long.

If you were looking for an epically long first two "Game of Thrones" episodes, then this news might leave you a little bit crestfallen. So the notion of unanimously mega-long episodes is simply not true.

After fan site Winter Is Coming noticed HBO has already posted two Game of Thrones Season 8 episodes to its programming schedule, a commenter pointed out that simply modifying the URL uncovered listings for future episodes as well.

Game of Thrones is surely the most popular series of recent years so there are big expectations for its final series - and a lot of pressure on the show's creators to deliver a good ending.

The first two episodes, to be aired on April 14 and April 21, will have the runtimes of 54 minutes and 58 minutes, respectively.

This isn't much different than the previous seven seasons.

While the first half of the season will have fairly traditional runtimes for Game of Thrones, the back half is stuffed with lengthier episodes, very almost approaching feature-length runtimes. Traditionally, Game of Thrones episodes have clocked in at around an hour in length, so this is nothing out of the ordinary.
