It is being reported the episode runtimes for the final season of Game of Thrones have become known as a French magazine claims to have the info from an Orange Cinema Series presentation.
France’s Premiere mag alleges the Game of Thrones Season 8 first two episodes are 60 minutes each, with the final four episodes coming in at 80 minutes each.
HBO has yet to confirm if the information is legit, but Premiere magazine tweeted out the information, said to be from the network that airs the series in France, OCS. The runtimes seem to be more or less just a general length as the magazine also let it be known, “The exact length of each episode has yet to be announced by HBO, OCS just gave us a more precise idea.”
Précision utile : @OCSTV a expliqué oralement que les deux premiers épisodes de la saison finale de #GameOfThrones allaient durer 60 minutes, et les quatre suivants 80 mn d’après les dernières infos de HBO https://t.co/UIDwB7xtvU

“It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death,” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman recently told EW.com about Game of Thrones Season 8. “It’s an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do — which is flipping this kind of story on its head.”
