The run times for the six episodes of Game of Thrones Season 8 would have been released by HBO via their unique live URLs on the HBO programming site.
Winter Is Coming noted that HBO had released its programming schedule for the first two episodes of season 8, with a duration of 54 and 58 minutes each.
The site then found that the user Noselessman on Disqus had discovered that it was possible to modify the URLs by modifying the numbers of each episode number, in which a page appears revealing each episode and the duration of the season 8.
The run times announced for the six episodes of Season 8 are as follows:
- Season 8 Episode 1 – 54 minutes
- Season 8 Episode 2 – 58 minutes
- Season 8 Episode 3 – 60 minutes
- Season 8 Episode 4 – 78 minutes
- Season 8 Episode 5 – 80 minutes
- Season 8 Episode 6 – 80 minutes
The run times of Season 8 are progressively longer as the season unfolds, but it is not uncommon for Game of Thrones. The season 7 finale has come close to 80 minutes, which is the longest episode of Game of Thrones to date.
In total, the run times are equal to six hours and 50 minutes, which, according to Newsweek, is even shorter than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
