HBO has gone to nice lengths to maintain Game of Thrones’ secrets and techniques underneath wraps for the present’s remaining season, however due to the official Twitter account for French leisure web site Premiere, we now know the runtime for every of the six episodes in Game of Thrones season 8.
According to the interpretation, the tweet reads: “Useful clarification: @OCSTV explained orally that the first two episodes of the final season of #GameOfThrones would last 60 minutes, and the following four episodes 80 minutes according to the latest HBO news.”
A consultant from Premiere was live-tweeting an occasion held by French film and tv distributor OCS TV (Orange Cinema Series), when it was clarified that “XXL” episodes really meant:
- Episode 801: 60 minutes
- Episode 802: 60 minutes
- Episode 803: 80 minutes
- Episode 804: 80 minutes
- Episode 805: 80 minutes
- Episode 806: 80 minutes
If true, this provides the present two, hour-long episodes to arrange the remainder of the season, with episodes 3-6 specializing in large battles and the wonderful storytelling we’ve come to anticipate from Thrones.
That additionally means HBO will cram the eighth and remaining season of its flagship sequence in seven hours and 20 minutes. And, whereas some followers may be upset that every episode isn’t feature-film in size, it is very important keep in mind that in previous seasons, not all episodes have run for a full hour, and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have given the ultimate 4 episodes 20 additional minutes to inform what I’m certain goes to be a bigger than life ending to Game of Thrones.
HBO has but to make an official announcement concerning this information, however that isn’t stunning. The undeniable fact that the tweet continues to be up and hasn’t been eliminated, may imply HBO may be sending out a press launch within the close to future, so nothing is confirmed till that occurs.
