This year’s season finale for HBO’s Game of Thrones is going to be longer than ever before. The channel has confirmed the titles and running time of the final two episodes.

The title of episode 9 is The Battle of the Bastards and presumably refers to the epic Jon Snow vs Ramsay Bolton face-off that’s been teased all season.

The Thrones showrunners have previously told us that season 6 includes the biggest battle in the show’s history.

The running time is 60 minutes, which is firmly on the long side. That episode airs June 19.

The title of the finale is The Winds of Winter a nod to George R R Martin’s forthcoming sixth novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire Saga (which was also given a verbal shout-out by the theater troupe in Braavos earlier this season).

The finale is a whopping 69 minutes long which makes it the longest Thrones episode ever and will air on June 26.
