For comparison, the finale episode for season seven was 81 minutes long. It was the longest episode in the series.
The new season is set to premiere on April 14 and will bring back stars like Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and others.
Talking about the show, Sophie said she is ‘terrible’ at keeping secrets.“I’m so bad at keeping secrets. I don’t think people tell me things anymore because they know that I can’t keep them. I’ve already told the ending of Game of Thrones to a few people,” she said.“I was like, ‘Hey, if you want to know, I’ll tell you.’ But it’s people that I know, not random people. It’s people that I know will keep the secret,” she added.
