The last season of "Game of Thrones" is nearly here, and HBO has been careful to keep spoilers under wraps. 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.
Earlier this month, HBO released a dramatic trailer for the final season, in which fans were given a glimpse into the epic battles and drama to come. Once we hit episode 3, though, they start getting significantly longer. Episode two, airing Sunday, April 21, is 58 minutes long. Episode four, Sunday May 5, is back down to an hour and 18 minutes, but episode five on Sunday, May 12 is back up to an hour and 20 minutes. However, it does prove that the majority of the final episodes will be as long or a little longer, than the show's previously record-holder: Season 7's finale, "The Dragon and the Wolf", which clocked in at 79 minutes and 43 seconds. This morning HBO confirmed this by announcing the official runtimes of all six episodes, along with the air dates for each one. We can't wait to see what Game of Thrones season 8 has in store, but you can bet that you won't be left wanting after the credits roll for the last time. HBO has been pretty upfront with its plans to create a Game of Thrones prequel series, which is set thousands of years before the events of the current show and stars Naomi Watts in the leading role.
