Game of Thrones is coming to an end. Our favorite show will show up in 2019, for one final ride, and then be no more.
Kit Harrington has hinted that the episodes of the final series of Game of Thrones may run for up to 90 minutes.
The actor said he is “not sure” whether instalments will be “70 or even 90 minutes” in length.
He told The Sun:
“There is so much work still to do. We haven’t put together a full episode yet as there is more filming. The length will be a network decision. But we are busy.”
Harington has starred as Jon Snow in the hit HBO series since 2011 and is currently filming series eight in Northern Ireland.
Earlier this month it was revealed that fans of the show will be waiting until 2019 for new episodes to arrive.
But HBO programming head Casey Bloys has promised that more filming time will make for an ‘epic’ final run.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bloys commented:
“Here’s what I’ll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality.
HBO programming president Casey Bloys recently commented on the lengths in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, as well :
“It really will be dependent on when the showrunners get the cuts and what they’re happy with. Everything on Game of Thrones is driven by their desire to make the best show possible. When we’re going to air, how long the episodes are — we’re taking their lead on what they need.”
Last year the show broke away from the traditional 10 episode-long series format of the first six runs, and the final series is set to do the same with a total of six episodes.
