The runtime for the third episode in the final season of Game of Thrones has apparently been revealed, and it’ll be the longest episode of the series to date. The HBO television schedule goes six weeks in advance, and “Game of Thrones 70” is now on the schedule for Sunday, April 28.
In case you missed it from last week: Season 8, Episode 1 has a runtime of 54 minutes and Season 8, Episode 2 has a runtime of 58 minutes.
Season 8, Episode 3 has a runtime of 82 minutes, which eclipses the 80-minute runtime from the Season 7 finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf”. For those disappointed in the sub-hour runtimes for the first two episodes of the final season, this is a welcome sight.
There’s still no word on the episode titles, but it’s possible this 82-minute episode is the Battle of Winterfell. With Season 8 fast approaching, we’ll find out soon enough.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones premieres April 14 at 9:00 PM ET.
