Game of Thrones Final Season Episode Runtimes Are Shorter Than You Thought

Game of Thrones Final Season Episode Runtimes Are Shorter Than You Thought

Adidas launch Game of Thrones-inspired running shoes

The runtimes were unofficially leaked earlier in the week, disappointing some fans who were expecting each episode to essentially be a mini film.

The final six episodes of the megahit show were originally rumored to be 90 minutes long each, but it's now clear that only the last four episodes will be longer than the show's usual runtime.

Previously, it was rumored each of the six episodes could be as long as most movies.

The final season is sure to provoke an array of emotions from loyal fans of the show, considering it has been on the air since 2011. Of course, the most important thing here is that the episodes are the right length - enough for character moments, those epic battles we're all waiting for, and without bulk for the sake of bulk. The season premiere will be followed by a 58-minute episode April 21.

Episode 3 - April 28, 1 hr.

Valve debuts Steam Link Anywhere, opens its multiplayer platform to devs
So, even though the Steam Link is gone, it seems Valve wasn't planning on letting Steam Link's functionality disappear too. Steam Link allows you to play on your phone, tablet, or TV for free using an app from Google Play.

The last season of "Game of Thrones" is nearly here, and HBO has been careful to keep spoilers under wraps.

Episode 6 - May 19, 1 hr.

Episode Five will air on Sunday, May 12 and be 1 hour and 20 minutes long.

We knew from a previous leak that the last few episodes would be way longer than usual, but to see HBO go all-out for the finale is heartening - after all, Game of Thrones season 8 needs to give us an enormous amount of closure after all these years.

Much like Tyrion whenever he's let loose in a brothel, after the fake news emerged of the alleged run times for Season 8 of Game of Thrones, a few publications got a bit too excited and decided that this was gospel.
