It might not feel like it, but Game of Thrones has been around for four years now. Since 2010, the series has been telling you not to trust certain noble families and ruining the colour red at weddings for all time. Right now, Game of Thrones is in a fourth season, and the end is drawing closer every year.According to current showrunners David Benioff and David Weiss who spoke to Vanity Fair, the current plan for the series is to end it around season seven or eight, thanks to advance knowledge from book author George R.R Martin on who gets a sword through the stomach parting gift. As Martin explained, he’s “hopeful that [he] can not let [the show] catch up.” But just in case, Benioff at least knows how the saga will end:

Last year we went out to Santa Fe for a week to sit down with him [Martin] and just talk through where things are going, because we don’t know if we are going to catch up and where exactly that would be. If you know the ending, then you can lay the groundwork for it. And so we want to know how everything ends. We want to be able to set things up. So we just sat down with him and literally went through every character.

And according to Weiss, not milking the show is a key factor in keeping it alive for just long enough. “It doesn’t just keep on going because it can,” Weiss said.

I think the desire to milk more out of it is what would eventually kill it, if we gave in to that.

Season four currently covers half of book 3 in the Song of fire and ice series. Martin in the meantime, is planning two more books to finish off saga. Which might finally include those damn dragons, according to fans who can’t wait much longer.

          Yes, it’s time. It’s really time. I read the books (as far as I could) and every time something big is going to happen I watch my wife’s reaction instead of the TV. I love this show.

      Yes, you should. Top notch story with a few “filler” episodes but pretty faithful to the source material. I just wish the old fucker would release those last two books already. 6 years in between A Feast for Crows and A Dance With Dragons (books 4 and 5)

          yes, but at least Wheel of Time ended, and ended well. Brandon Sanderson did a good job of wrapping up the last three books using all of Jordans notes etc, and a lot of A Memory of Light (last book) was actually written by Jordan.

          I also ‘got burned’, but I am a sucker for good books, so Martin has got me hooked.

            I’ve never finished the WoT. Last one I read was Knife of Dreams, which I really didn’t enjoy. Suppose I’m just bitter because I was buying each one immediately on release & having to wait for the next was torture heh.

    Seven or Eight seasons? Fuck that. NOTHING stays consistently good and ups the game continuously for that long. It’s bound to go down one of two ways: either the whitewalkers only finally get dealt with in the last two seasons or we are set of a mid-series story rejig ala. Supernatural and a million other shows. And that always works out so well. Worst of all, by the end of the series there will probably not be any of the original characters left.

    Nah, give me the five-season punch of Breaking Bad or the quick kick to the head ala. True Detective. Even The Wire started to drag near its end. Alas, all you annoying fantasy fankids who read these endless tomes and have no idea what economic writing looks like are to blame for this. Game of Thrones could have been awesome. Now it’s gonna be all over the place.

      It is economic writing, more words = more money 😉
