As we all eagerly await the new season of Game of Thrones on July 16, we’re on the prowl for any kind of information that will tame the impatient beast inside of us.
And we finally have some.
Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and DB Weiss have now confirmed that season 7 will be the most varied season in terms of episode length. Not only will the new season have one little fun-sized 50-minute episode, but it will also clock up the longest episode yet. And we’re so ready for it.
According to Benioff and Weiss, the epic season finale of season 7 will culminate in an hour and a half long episode. Yep, 90 minutes of pure GoT goodness (or most likely badness in the form of murder, dragons, the battle for the Iron Throne, the crushing of our dreams, and a few tears as we realize we have to wait until 2019 for season 8).
At the moment, HBO is being pretty tight-lipped with the storylines of Season 7 – which is great for those who don’t want any spoilers, but incredibly annoying for those of us (i.e. us here at RetroEnt) who want to prepare ourselves for the impending drama. So we really don’t know what’s going to happen.
But we can’t wait to find out on July 16 when season 7 finally kicks off.
