All Six Episodes Of Game Of Thrones Season Eight Confirmed To Be Over An Hour Long

The final season of Game of Thrones is nearly upon us. HBO has confirmed that season eight of Game of Thrones is set to air in April 2019, which is only a few months away. While it’s sad to know that this great show will soon be over, we can rejoice with the knowledge that every episode will be longer than ever before.

Director Confirms Run Time To Be Over 60 Minutes

David Nutter, a director who has worked on Game of Thrones since season two and will be directing three of the upcoming season’s episodes, recently did an AMA on Reddit. One of the questions asked was what the average length of the episodes is going to be.

Hype

His response was as follows: “Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes. They’ll be dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure.” This is certainly exciting as many of the show’s best episodes went over an hour.

Can Season Eight Break Game of Thrones’ Previous Record?

Season seven of the show was a mixed bag for many fans. It contained lots of spectacular moments and episodes, despite some rather lackluster conclusions to certain longrunning arcs. But season seven was also a record-setter in many respects, including episode length.

Digital Spy

The Spoils of War was the shortest episode of the show’s history, clocking in at 50 minutes. However, the final episode, The Dragon and The Wolf, clocked in an outstanding 81 minutes. Considering HBO’s policy of letting episodes run the length they need to tell their story, it’s clear the Game of Thrones team know what needs more focus and what doesn’t.

Only Six Episodes, But Guaranteed To Be Spectacular

While most seasons of Game of Thrones are 10 episodes in length, season seven broke this trend. It only had seven episodes, but as a result, the budget for each episode was increased to compensate. Expect the same for the final season.

Fansided

With the small number of episodes in season eight, that means the individual budget for each episode will have gone up, even more than season seven. David Nutter even stated that all of season eight can be compared to the Red Wedding. That’s a massive compliment and makes us even more hyped for the final season.

Beverly Hills, 90210: Was Luke Perry Team Dylan or Team Brandon?

Some television shows come into our lives at the exact right moment, so that they become inextricably bound with our memories of those complicated coming-of-age years, Beverly Hills 90210 is without a doubt one of those shows. We all tuned in week after week, year after year because the drama was just so addicting. The love triangles! The will-they-won’t-theys! Meanwhile, when the cameras weren’t rolling, the cast was up to plenty of off-set antics of their own. Disclaimer: after you read about what went down, it might have you rethinking everything — were those angsty expressions just good acting, or were they bringing some real-life drama into it?
