Game of Thrones Season 7 to launch with extra-long opener.

Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere with a feature-length episode.

When the latest series premieres in the early hours of 17 July in the UK, the opener will run for a full 59 minutes.   Fans will already know that Sky Atlantic’s epic drama will have a shorter run this year, with only seven episodes planned, however this news may well mean each episode will run for longer than usual, or there may even be a feature-length finale.

Fans can catch up on all of the Game of Thrones episodes so far via Sky Boxsets or NOW TV.
