By  | 

Games of Thrones fans suffering withdrawal symptoms can sleep simple tonight, as it’s been exposed that season 7 of the hit fantasy drama will feature longer episodes than any of the previous installments.Diehard GoT fans all over the

world were disheartened to learn last summer season that the upcoming seventh season would be shorter than normal-instead of 10 episodes, HBO would only be airing seven in 2017. Hopes that the new episodes would a minimum of go beyond previous running times were rushed when Entertainment Weekly reported that”the remaining episodes are not, for the most part, longer.”Nevertheless, fortunately, for those of us who can’t get enough of the show’s’ sex, murder and dragons’combo, it looks as though the folk over at Entertainment Weekly might well have been misinformed. Image credit: Game of Thrones/HBO HBO.com has actually now revealed a complete breakdown of Game of Thrones episode runtimes for season seven and it includes some mammoth, record-breaking episodes.Episode 1: 59 minutes.Episode 2: 59 minutes.Episode 3: 63 minutes.Episode 4: 50 minutes.Episode 5: 59 minutes.Episode 6: 71 minutes.Episode 7:

81 minutes.As you can see in the listings above, season seven’s ending will be considerably lengthier than other single episode to this day, at a massive 81 minutes.The penultimate episode is likewise a record-breaker for the show, weighing in at an outstanding 71 minutes.The last 2 episodes will climax set by the last aired episode,
the season six ending”The
Winds of Winter “, which stood

at 68 minutes. This year’s ending will supposedly top it by 13 minutes.< img src="http://20.theladbiblegroup.com/s3/content/637858e1593aa985a9b7cc36940abe5a.jpg"data-orig-height="1181"data-orig-width="2100 "alt=""> Image credit: Video game of Thrones/HBO While a few minutes here or there have been known to alter in the HBO schedule, it still looks as if we’re in for a lot more action than we were initially led to believe.The seven brand-new episodes make up near seven hours 20 minutes. That might be significantly less than the typical 9 hours 15 minutes season, yet at the very same time it’s the longest run of 7 episodes in the show.Now we only have just over a month to wait on the program to return and

then just an additional 7 weeks

until it’s over again.Make the most of it, due to the fact that it’s possible we won’t see anymore until 2019! If you haven’t seen it currently, it’s worth taking a few minutes out of your day to watch the season 7 trailer: Image credit: Game of Thrones/HBO We can just think what may be in store for us during an 81-minute episode, however if season six’s 68-minute finale is anything to go by, we ‘d think of rather a lot.In the last

episode of the last season, we saw an old bloke eat his kids in a pie, Daenerys begin her voyage to Westeros( with dragons, certainly)and the deaths of half the named characters in King’s Landing. Oh, and we saw a church blow up.By those standards, it’s safe to state we’re feeling delighted.
