Get ready for the new daily show

Game of Thrones’ final season could all be feature length episodes…

July 3rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

Imagine having a Game of Thrones movie every week… well, it could be a thing for the show’s final episodes.

News has come from the Game of Thrones convention, Con of Thrones, in Nashville that the final episode of the new season will have a longer running time of 82 minutes and that could be pretty much run-of-the-mill for the final season.

While the number of episodes has shrunk, with seven slated for the upcoming season and just six for the yet-to-be-produced final batch, Season 8, the length will likely move toward feature range of 80-plus minutes next season, according to sound designed Paula Fairfield. She said Season 7 episodes will be their customary hour-long duration, but the finale of Season 7 clocks in at 82 minutes. In Season 8, the episodes could be in the 80-plus-minute range of a feature film, as series like Sherlock and Black Mirror have done.

Given that we’re now into the final run of episodes for TV’s most epic show, this would definitely make sense as there still seems to be so much to cover.

Would you like to see the final six episodes clocking in as movies? Let us know…
