We've only got a month to go before the final season of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO. A trailer for the series was recently released and it managed to get fans insanely excited for what was coming.

We now know the official run time for each of the episodes that will be released and four of them are feature-length, so that's freakin' cool! Here's the list that was released by EW:

Season 8, episode 1
Debut date: SUNDAY, APRIL 14 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Estimated running time: 0:54

Season 8, episode 2
Debut date: SUNDAY, APRIL 21 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Estimated running time: 0:58

Season 8, episode 3
Debut date: SUNDAY, APRIL 28 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Estimated running time: 1:22

Season 8, episode 4
Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 5 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Estimated running time: 1:18

Season 8, episode 5
Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 12 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Estimated running time: 1:20

Season 8, episode 6
Debut date: SUNDAY, MAY 19 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Estimated running time: 1:20

I just wish that fans had the opportunity to watch this series finale on the big screen! When previously talking about the run times, HBO’s chief Richard Plepler said, “Some fans have been disappointed that the final season episodes aren’t two hours each" but he did say that the final episodes will be “like six movies.”

While the episodes aren’t 2-hours long, an hour and twenty minutes is considered feature-length so fans shouldn’t complain. As long as we get an epic conclusion to this incredible fantasy story, I’ll be happy.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO for the eighth and final season on April 14th. Each episode will be released on HBO at 9pm EST.
