You probably already know that new& Game of Thrones& episodes won't air until 2019, which totally sucks.&

But what are the showrunners behind HBO's fantasy megahit doing with all that free time?&

The Mirror reports that Kit Harington, who plays fan favorite Jon Snow, revealed that they're working on Season 8 episodes that could be up to 90 minutes long each.&

“We know we have six episodes - we are not sure whether they will run for 70 minutes or even 90 minutes,” the actor explained.

“There is so much work still to do. We haven’t put together a full episode yet as there is more filming. The length will be a network decision."

90 minutes is feature-film length. That means more time for dragons, bloodshed, and best of all,& sex lessons from the Seven Kingdoms' hottest women.&

And they really pulling out all of the stops for the final season.& HBO's Casey Bloys told Entertainment Weekly that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are doing everything in their power to ensure that the last six episodes are the strongest ones yet.&

“Here’s what I’ll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality. As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger — big battle scenes, big special effects,” Bloys said.&

“These things take time. Here’s the one thing I can assure you: Dan and Dave were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with."& &

Hopefully it's worth the wait.&
