'Game of Thrones' Finale Run Time: How Much Do We Have Left to Watch?

The final season of Game of Thrones is almost here, melting the frigid hearts of fans who have been waiting for two years for the premiere. George R.R. Martin's books haven't finished with the adventures of the Starks, Lannisters and Targaryens, but HBO fans will finally see their TV stories come to a close. Fans can expect an six-episode season complete with adventure, betrayal and even a dragon or three.

Each episode has its own unique run time, meaning each episode was distinctly curated to have just enough content to tell its story. Game of Thrones has nearly a dozen plot lines fans want to see it complete by the end of the season, so expect dense episodes with lots of major events that all need to be wrapped up in six episodes.

The finale episode clocks in at 80 minutes, which is going to make it one of the longer episodes in the series. Here's the run time of every episode straight from HBO.
