Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode Runtimes Confirmed By HBO

The last season of "Game of Thrones" is nearly here, and HBO has been careful to keep spoilers under wraps. This morning HBO confirmed this by announcing the official runtimes of all six episodes, along with the air dates for each one. Well, just prepare to carve out a big chunk of your Sunday evenings for the next month or so come April. The shortest episode of the season will be the premiere at 54 minutes, with the second episode following close behind at just two minutes under an hour at 58 minutes. The final episode, airing Sunday, May 19, will also be an hour and 20 minutes long. That's a ton of backstabbing, dragon riding, wine drinking and zombie bashing for you.

Here's when each episode will air and its estimated length. Once we hit episode 3, though, they start getting significantly longer.

If it wasn't already obvious to you that there's quite a lot of excitement building about Game of Thrones, perhaps this - the news that it's now reached a point where it's inspiring special collections of Adidas trainers - will spell it out for you.

Earlier in the week, fans of the show were able to sleuth their way around the cable network's digital schedule to get an idea for what "movie-length" actually means for each installment of the abbreviated season, and, as it turns out, they were pretty accurate. This is the biggest show in terms of scale we've ever seen, and in terms of fandom, possibly the biggest show ever, period.
