“Game of Thrones” plans on going out with a bang.
The hit HBO show, which returns on July 16, might be airing extra long episodes to make up for a shortened final season.
At Con of Thrones, a “Game of Thrones” fan convention over the weekend, sound designer Paula Fairfield teased that the eighth season could feature movie-length episodes ranging close to 80 minutes long.
HBO had already revealed that the season 7 finale will be a whopping 81 minutes long.
While previous seasons have all been 10 episodes, the seventh season will be just seven episodes long, while the eighth and final season will have just six episodes.
Episodes have typically run about 55 minutes each.
Hurry up July 16th!!!
