Game of Thrones' final season will air in Ireland at the same time as North America

It's been almost two years since there were new episodes of Game of Thrones. 

But with around a month to go until the final season begins, the wait is (finally) almost over.

Details about what's actually going to end up happening in Game of Thrones' eighth season are pretty much one of the best kept secrets in Westeros.

Thankfully, though, fans in Ireland will be able to get answers to Game of Thrones' big cliffhanger at the same time as viewers in the United States and Canada this season.

A spokesperson for Sky has confirmed that Game of Thrones' final season will be airing at the same time as it is broadcast on HBO in North America.

Yes, this means that it will all be beginning very early in the morning. The live simulcast of the first episode will kick off at 2am on April 15, if we're being exact. If you're not up for staying up super late/getting up super early, the episode will also be airing on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV at 9pm that evening.

Either way, April 15 can't get here quick enough.

The news comes after the run times for the first two episodes of Game of Thrones were revealed.

According to fansite Winter Is Comingthe HBO schedule has revealed that the  first of Game of Thrones' final six episodes will run for 54 minutes.

The second, meanwhile, will run for 58 minutes.
