Clocking in at nearly 90 minutes, the coming season of “Game of Thrones” will include its longest episode in the history of the HBO drama, according to a report by Entertainment Weekly,

HBO announced that the Emmy winning fantasy epic “Game of Thrones” will return in April for its eighth and final season with a dramatic new video.

A specific date is not given in the video, which promises a final confrontation with the White Walkers, which the show has been building to for several years.

Seasons 1-6 of the program debuted in April or late March, but Season 7 bowed in July of last year, due to the production’s late start to accommodate the narrative’s chilly weather. “Game of Thrones” takes place in a fantasy kingdom where summers can last for 23 years, and winters just as long.

Although Season 8 is the final season of the show, HBO has multiple projects set in the “Game of Thrones” universe currently in development, including a prequel which takes place thousands of years prior to the events of “Game of Thrones.”

“Game of Thrones” is based on a series of novels by acclaimed author George R.R. Martin, collectively known as “A Song of Ice and Fire.”
