Season 7 of Game of Thrones is all about size, it seems.
At 59 minutes, Season 7’s premier was listed as the show’s longest premiere since the pilot episode in 2011—a lifetime ago.
Well, one trailer later, showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have announced that one of the season’s seven episodes is going to be fun-sized, clocking in at 50 minutes. Two more are closer to the "broadsword" side of the equation: clocking at over 60 minutes, with the finale a movie in its own right at one hour and thirty minutes.
Which is crazy.
Nobody really knows what’s going to happen. The last book, A Dance with Dragons, released in 2011 and ended around the time of the season 5 cliffhanger. Nobody save the writers knows what’s in store for the next season…although it’s a safe bet that a character or two will be poked, occasionally by a sword.
The show will wrap with season eight next year. No publication date for The Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the series, has been announced.
Winter is coming July 16th.
