We, the Game Of Thrones fans have been waiting for the final season of the hit HBO fantasy TV show for quite some time. Among all the ruckus, we have got a situation with the creator of the whole series, the mastermind of the throne thinks that this should be the final stepping stone for the TV show.
George R.R. Martin, the creator of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ books, the origin of ‘Game of Thrones’ says that the eighth season should not be the final season of the show. He, speaking to the Hollywood Reporter says: “I don’t think it should be the final season. But here we are. It seems to me we just started last week. Has it been longer than that? The time has passed by in a blur. But it’s exciting.“
Additionally, he also promised that this amazing fantasy world will live on in many ways by further adding: “I know it’s an end, but it’s not much of an end for me. I’m still deep in writing the books. We saw five other sequel shows in development. I think I’m going to be hanging around Westeros while everyone else has left.”
Upon asked why he thinks that the show should not end this season, he brushes off the question by asking the interviewer to ask this same question to the producers. He said: “I don’t know, ask David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] when they come through. We could have gone to 11, 12, 13 seasons. But I guess they wanted a life.”
He also revealed how he wanted the show to go for more seasons but cuts were needed to be made to cut the seasons short. He revealed: “David and Dan have been saying for five years that seven seasons was all they would go. We got them to go to eight but not any more than that. There was a period five years ago where they were saying seven seasons and I was saying 10, and they won.”
As much amazing as it sounds to have more seasons of Game of Thrones shine on our TV screens, we have only one more season to go. The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ premieres next week, stay tuned.
