Season 7 of Game of Thrones will witness the series’ longest finale ever. The episode will be around one hour and a half. There is also the shortest episode ever.
“We have two episodes over 60 minutes this year,” showrunner Dan Weiss said.
“One will be our longest episode ever — it’s coming in around 90 minutes,” showrunner David Benioff added. “Another is going to be our shortest episode at 50 minutes.”
Previous Longest Episode
The finale, “The Winds of Winter,” in season 6 was previously the longest episode in the series; it ran for 69 minutes.
The new season will screen the shortest episode which is the fourth episode at just 50 minutes. However, it is not a big deal because there have been several previous screenings that lasted 51 minutes, so it’s just a matter of seconds.
Highlights of Season 7
Returning on July 16, fans are extremely excited for season 7 of Game of Thrones but they are disappointed in the fact that the final two seasons will only contain seven and six episodes, respectively. Nevertheless, fans are finding satisfaction in season 7 which will contain the longest episode ever. HBO didn’t affirm any run times except for the season premiere, which will last for 59 minutes.
Furthermore, season 7 will witness the arrival of “the Great War,” as the Lannisters are surrounded by enemies on all sides: Jon Snow to the North, Daenerys Targaryen to the East, the Iron Islands to the West, and Dorne to the South.
Game of Thrones Final Seasons
Bad news is fans may have to wait a long time before Game of Thrones’ story ends. Some rumors speculate that season eighth and the final season of Game of Thrones will air in 2019.
