How Many Hours is Game of Thrones From The Beginning? An Analysis
And so your watch begins. Season 8, the final season of Game of Thrones, starts April 14, 2019, so binge-watching is coming. If you want to re-watch Game of Thrones from the beginning, or asking “How many hours is Game of Thrones?” here’s how long it would take to watch every episode starting with Season 1, Episode 1.
There are currently 67 total episodes of Game of Thrones of the seven seasons that have aired. You might peg each episode at one hour, but that would not be precisely correct. Most episodes are actually 51-53 minutes in length. Season finales are generally a little longer; the Season 7 finale was 81 minutes long, and the Season 6 finale was 68 minutes long, and the finales were also a little longer for Season 5 (60 minutes), Season 4 (65 minutes), Season 3 (63 minutes), and Season 2 (63 minutes).
That means watching each full-length episode would take you 63.5 hours, or the equivalent of two days, 15 hours and 30 minutes. These totals do not include the “Previously on Game of Thrones” opening catch-up segments.
If you skip the closing credits, you can whittle that length down to 62.4 hours. If you also skip the opening credit sequence, you can shorten it to 60.7 hours.
Game of Thrones starts up again April 14, 2019, and each episode of the final Season 8 will reportedly be longer than 60 minutes, and in some cases closer to 90 minutes.
And for those of you who’ve never heard of Game of Thrones before, it’s one of the best shows of all time. It’s highly recommended that you watch it. It will be 60 or so hours of the best TV you’ve ever seen.
