Any doubt that the final season of HBO‘s Game of Thrones would be worth the two-year wait is now gone.

During a Reddit AMA on Tuesday, director David Nutter replied to a fan question asking how long season eight’s episodes will be. His answer was more than pleasing. Nutter replied: “Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes. They’ll be dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure.”

While nothing is official yet, Nutter directed a handful of episodes for the series’ final season, leading fans to take his comment as fact.

The Emmy winner also shared his thoughts on the coming season, calling it, “Spectacular, Inspiring, Satisfying,” and urging fans to “hang onto your seat cause it’s going to be special.”

Director Miguel Sapochnik (“Battle of the Bastards”) also directed episodes in the final season, as well as showrunners Benioff and Weiss.

The final six episodes of HBO’s fantasy hit will air sometime in April 2019.
