HBO has confirmed that the first two episodes of the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" will be slightly shorter than the rest.

Another pointed out that HBO has counted "making of material" shown at the end of the episodes in their official runtimes, raising questions about how much of these times are devoted only to the story. Well, just prepare to carve out a big chunk of your Sunday evenings for the next month or so come April.

The season kicks off April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.

From that point, the lengths are edging closer to film length. That's a ton of backstabbing, dragon riding, wine drinking and zombie bashing for you.

While we now have the runtimes we still don't know the titles of each episode, leaving a bit of mystery still in the air. We can't wait to see what Game of Thrones season 8 has in store, but you can bet that you won't be left wanting after the credits roll for the last time. Between this and AVENGERS: ENDGAME this April will be one for the books, and for the tears.
