Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Will Have A Movie-Length Finale

The next season of Game of Thrones will feature the longest episodes in the show’s history.

While the seventh series is going to be the shortest yet – just seven parts long – viewers will see more in-depth episodes.

The series finale itself is going to be a record-breaking 81 minutes long.

While the penultimate episode will be 71 minutes long, according to Watchers on the Wall.

And for those hardcore GoT fans who plan on binge-watching the entire season at once, it will run for seven hours and 20 minutes in total.

To date, the longest running episode comes in season six’s season finale; ‘The Winds of Winter’ episode ran for 68 minutes.

Since Watchers‘ exclusive reveal, fans have taken to social media to show their excitement.

One tweeter exclaimed ‘oh my god!’ at the news.

While another hilariously wrote,

And others just simply cannot wait for the next series to come out.

Even though the episode lengths have been revealed, HBO are unlikely to disclose the episode titles.

One fan asked Watchers on the Wall, 

any idea when we will find out episode titles?

To which the Game of Thrones news site replied,

Nope. HBO never gives us a heads up, they just appear like magic.

Fans and TV critics are expecting even more dramatic events to unfold now that the episodes will be longer.

The impending seventh season was pushed back by over six months due to a production scheduling problem.

But in a recent interview, HBO programming chief, Casey Bloys, said season eight – the final one – may be pushed back until 2019.

He told Entertainment Weekly,

By the time the final season airs, [showrunners] Dan and David will have been at this for 12 years.

When asked if the final season will air in 2019, Bloys explained,

They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.

HBO’s hit show will make its highly-aniticpated return on July 16.
