There are solely six episodes of Game of Thrones remaining. They’re going to spectacular episodes — the solid and crew spent extra effort and time filming these six than they did any earlier set, in any case — however nonetheless, that’s an alarmingly small quantity.
Slowly however absolutely, we’re getting extra particulars. For instance, some time again, we acquired an estimate of the episode runtimes from Orange Cinéma Séries, a bunch of French TV channels. According to that data, the episodes had been going to interrupt down like this:
- Episode 801: 60 minutes
- Episode 802: 60 minutes
- Episode 803: 80 minutes
- Episode 804: 80 minutes
- Episode 805: 80 minutes
- Episode 806: 80 minutes
Now, these numbers are manner too spherical to be fully correct, and we at all times anticipated HBO to launch extra particular runtimes because the episodes had been edited into their ultimate varieties. Now, the community has up to date its schedule to point out us the runtimes for the primary and second episodes of Game of Thrones season 8. Episode 801 will run 54 minutes…
…whereas Episode 802 will run 58:
So far as Game of Thrones episode lengths go, these are fairly commonplace, and roughly match with the “60 minutes” we acquired from OCS. We can anticipate the ultimate 4 to be a bit longer.
I do know we prefer to savor each element right here at WiC, however truthfully I wouldn’t put an excessive amount of inventory in episode lengths. It’s what in there that’s essential. Exhibit A is an episode like “The Spoils of War,” which at 50 minutes is among the many shortest episodes the present has produced, but in addition among the best. Still, we’ll hold our ear to the bottom for extra data.
