'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Episodes Could Be Feature Length

As we all know the episodes of Game of Thrones are dwindling down...

Everyone's dying to see Jon Snow team up with Daenerys Targaryen, to find out if he and Tyrion are Targaryens, to stop Cersei, and hopefully kill all the White Walkers. 

But no one wants to see the series end!

The number of remaining episodes are becoming fewer and fewer as both Season Seven and Season Eight will be shorter than normal. 

But, there's some new good news!

The final season could be longer than we originally thought.

News broke out at the first Game of Thrones fan convention, Con of Thrones, which took place in in Nashville.

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 designer 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.

So it's basically a Game of Thrones movie every Sunday night for six weeks. 

We'll just go ahead and clear our schedules right now.
