'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere to run 54 minutes

'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere to run 54 minutes

The website Winter is Coming has discovered running times for each episode of the six-episode season beginning on April 14.

HBO has updated its schedule to include the first two episodes of season 8, complete with runtimes. "They'll be dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure".

References to the Game of Thrones world include a motto on the heel tag and a symbol on the tongue, with each house or group of characters also inspiring the colorway of each of the six shoes.

The answer is simple and certainly not as dramatic as the events yet to unfold on Thrones during season 8: the episodes hadn't been finalized when Nutter wrote that they would all be around 60 minutes or longer, and the editing process clipped away a few minutes from each.

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

HBO is extremely paranoid about anything leaking about the show ever since the first 4 episodes leaked online during the 5th season that was traced back to DVD screeners usually sent to American TV critics, although it wasn't a TV critic who leaked the episodes. But there is no denying this is bad news for people who want more of a very good thing.

Game of Thrones has been an extremely successful series for HBO throughout its run.

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.
