“Game of Thrones” fans have been patiently waiting for season 7 to arrive, and this year the show is returning a little bit later than usual. But that’s ok because the wait is almost over, and we’ll be diving right back into the drama of Westeros when “Game of Thrones” season 7 premieres in July.

From the very beginning the series has been a wild ride, but there are only two seasons left. Luckily now that a lot of the set up is coming to fruition, it looks like the next two seasons are going to be quite intense.

Fans have high expectations for season 7, and one thing that has now been confirmed is that the season finale will be almost an hour and a half.

“We have two episodes over 60 minutes this year,” showrunner Dan Weiss told EW. “One will be our longest episode ever — it’s coming in around 90 minutes,” added showrunner David Benioff. “Another is going to be our shortest episode at 50 minutes.”

The season premiere is believed to be 59 minutes long, and “Game of Thrones” will return on July 16, 2017.
