GoT fans will be unhappy – George R.R. Martin

The Television Academy Of Arts And Sciences' Presents An Evening With "Games Of Thrones"Creator of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin, made an appearance at a Writers Guild West Awards and had some very interesting things to say about character deaths on the show, versus the books.

“People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. [David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] are even bloodier than I am.”

Martin expounded on the popularity of the show, and his plan to stop at seven books:

“Yeah, it’s the hottest show on TV now, but will it be the hottest show on TV two years from now? Hot shows come and go and television changes, and I’ve lived through that before. I certainly hope that we get to tell the entire story. Because whatever happens with the show I’m going to finish the books, it will be seven books. But each of these books are 1500 pages long and they each have enough material in them for several seasons. I have two more books, the one I’m writing right now, ‘The Winds Of Winter,’ and after that the last book, ‘The Dream of Spring,’ so those will be the two final books. But we’re talking 3000 pages of material. How many seasons that translates too? That’s up to D.B. And David.”

Game of Thrones will be back on showcase in April.
