The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ could have episodes as long as feature films


At Con of Thrones this past weekend, «Game of Thrones» sound designer Patricia Fairfield revealed some information that may make a lot of «Game of Thrones» fans very happy.

Fairfield revealed on a conference panel Saturday that the «Game of Thrones» creators are considering making each episode of the final season feature-film length.

David Chen, one of the hosts and producers of the «Game of Thrones» recap podcast «A Cast of Kings,» tweeted about Fairfield’s remarks while attending the panel.

We already know that the penultimate season finale will be a record-breaking 81 minutes long, but it seems as if the creators may be looking to continue the trend going into the final season too. There’s a lot that the creators could do with the extra time each week, and now that «Game of Thrones» has outrun the books (which the plot of the show has been primarily based off of thus far) there’s really no way of knowing where the creators could be taking the show.

All we know is that one feature length episode a week gives «Game of Thrones» creators a lot of time to kill off our favorite characters (those who are still alive anyway). Season seven of «Game of Thrones» premieres July 16.
