'Game of Thrones' final season episode lengths revealed

EW.com will have daily GoT coverage up until launch and through the season.

Although there are no direct spoilers for Season 8, please turn back now if you wish to not find out any runtimes for the final season of Game of Thrones.

Is this enough time to finish the story of Game of Thrones? Episode 1, which premieres on April 14, will be 54 minutes, while Episode 2 the following week is 58 minutes.

The 8th season of Game of Thrones starts on M-Net (DStv 101) on Monday, 15 April at 03:00 with an episode that will be 54 minutes in duration, as an Express from the U.S. title with episodes that will be shown simultaneously as in the United States and again at 22:00 on the same day.

Thing is, we must remember that Thrones is on HBO, which means no advertisement breaks.

Total, the runtimes equal six hours and 50 minutes, which Newsweek pointed out is still shorter than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

In an interaction with Entertainment Weekly, director David Nutter had divulged some information about the series saying, "The fans will not be let down".

The first reason is that a studio, distributor, network or channel don't need to because media, public and consumer interest and engagement is already high, built-in or guaranteed. Should that be true, it would certainly satisfy fans looking to go out with a film-sized bang. It is important for us, we spent 11 years elaborating this (.)
