These 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 episodes will be movies

There are only six episodes left of Game Of Thrones - when it returns next month for its eighth and final season, it will be the series' shortest run.

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 vast amount of closure after all these years. The final episode, airing Sunday, May 19, will also be an hour and 20 minutes long.

Previously, it was rumored each of the six episodes could be as long as most movies. The season's six episodes felt more like "six movies" than they did a set of TV episodes, he insisted, which many people took to be a reference to their length.

When the application asks for the children's abilities, Becky's husband Jesse outright lies. In the 26-year-old episode, Loughlin's character, Becky Katsopolis, faced a dilemma.

To save you a trip to your local calculator, that all totals to 432 minutes (or 7 hours and 12 minutes) of unbridled Game of Thrones goodness. The first two clock in at lengths we more or less expect out of Game of Thrones at 54 minutes long and 58 minutes long, respectively.

That means just the opening two episodes will come in at the usual one-hour mark, with the final four chunks receiving boosted runtimes.

If it wasn't already obvious to you that there's quite a lot of excitement building about Game of Thrones, perhaps this - the news that it's now reached a point where it's inspiring special collections of Adidas trainers - will spell it out for you. Game of Thrones final episodes begin next month. We'll have to wait and see.
