The season premiere will be followed by a 58-minute episode April 21. We're learning today that most of the episodes in season 8 will run longer than the typical hour we're used to setting aside, so even though this is the shortest season in terms of episode count, there's still going to be plenty of content to watch. HBO has officially announced the air dates and runtimes for the final season, and the last four of these six episodes have been confirmed for movie-length runtimes at well over an hour each.

HBO has confirmed Game of Thrones' final supersized episodes, including three that hit the 80-minute mark. Then, the 5th will be on for an hour and 18 minutes, while the 12th will be back up to an hour and 20 minutes. Make sure you've cleared out your Sunday nights for the following dates, because it's unlikely you'll have time to do anything other than watching the feature-length episodes and talking about them for hours afterwards.

"In the third episode of the last season, there is a battle that the creators meant to be a historic moment in television".

Episode Six will air on Sunday, May 19 and be 1 hour and 20 minutes long.

From that point, the lengths are edging closer to film length.

US, EU Slap New Sanctions on Russia Over Ukraine
The US also imposed sanctions on two Ukrainian separatists for their support of "illegitimate separatist government elections". We will continue to take necessary action together in response to Russia's efforts to destabilise Ukraine.

The season kicks off April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.

Unless you're willing to stay up into the early hours of Monday morning, as season 8 will be simulcast.

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.

Either way, April 15 can't get here quick enough.
