Game of Thrones Season 3 Longer Episodes, Video. The third season of HBO’s Game of Thrones will be longer than the previous two seasons and a new behind-the-scenes video entitled Art Direction has been released. Showrunner’s David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explain how the Game of Thrones will be extended this season. “Last year we had a lot of 52-minute episodes. This year is a lot of 56, 57,” co-showrunner David Benioff explained. GoT‘s other showrunner, D.B. Weiss, added, “So for people clamoring for another episode, it’s in there. It’s just been cut into tiny pieces.” The network offered its own clarification: “All 10 episodes gained a minute or two from past seasons with the finale very possibly exceeding 60 minutes.”
Season 3 of Game of Thrones will be based on the novel A Storm of Swords, the third book in George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series.
