‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season Episode Runtimes Revealed

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones
With about one month until the final season premiere, Game of Thrones fans are antsy for whatever information that they can get. Luckily, some fans have been able to find out how long the final six episodes of HBO’s hit fantasy drama are going to be.


Game of Thrones fan site Winter is Coming has scored a major update on the running times of the remaining episodes, which they uncovered by manipulating some URLs to find unlisted information on each of the six episodes. While the first and second episodes – both directed by David Nutter – are pretty standard in length, running at 54 and 58 minutes respectively, things pick up significantly in the last two-thirds of the season.


The third episode, which is widely believed to feature the Battle of Winterfell (described as being one of the biggest action sequences that has ever been choreographed for the series), is 60 minutes in length. Incidentally, this episode has the same running time as director Miguel Sapochnik’s previous two action-heavy episodes (“Hardhome” and “Battle of the Bastards”).


The fourth episode, which puts the ball back in director David Nutter’s court, is where things get really lengthy. His final Game of Thrones episode runs at a whopping 78 minutes. Sapochnik returns for one the fifth episode that’s even longer at 80 minutes; his final episode matches his previous record with “The Dragon and the Wolf” last season, though it remains to be seen if that episode will have another massive battle sequence (which seems likely). Finally, showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss directed the final episode, which also runs at 80 minutes in length.


The data listed here is open to variability, as a previous estimate that leaked out to Winter is Coming is almost identical to the listing here, with the only difference being that the third episode is 80 minutes long instead of just an hour. Either way, HBO are packing a lot of content into the last episodes of their global phenomenon; hopefully, the extended wait for these last few episodes will be more than worth it.


Game of Thrones will begin its final season starting on April 14, 2019. A prequel, The Long Night, is set to air sometime next year.
