HBO programming chief Casey Bloys says the final season episodes won't be two hours long, adding that the final season will be "epic." He also discussed the lack of leaks: "Our security measures have gotten higher and higher over the years due to various hacks and leaks. We’re at a pretty heightened security level. Obviously, when you’re in production there’s a higher chance of things getting out. But in terms of us at HBO our precautions are pretty high as is."
