With just one month left to wait, we’re scrambling to find out every new bit of Game of Thrones season 8 information.

TV critics aren’t even allowed to pre-watch any of the series ahead of it’s launch on 15th April.
The latest snippet of information to come directly from HBO is the official air dates and runtimes of the final six episodes. Now it’s been long rumoured that we’d be treated to feature-length 80 minute episodes for the final season but it turns out that this isn’t the case, well at least not for the first couple.

- Game of Thrones 8×04 – 78 minutes (6th May)
