Another winter will have come and gone before Game of Thrones fans feel the Winds. Series author George R.R. Martin has confirmed readers’ worst fears – the Song of Ice and Fire’s long-awaited sixth novel won’t hit shelves until at least 2019.
The urgency of Game of Thrones’ final season will preclude significant characters, but it seems we can write off an entire family. An in-demand star confirms the eighth and final season will find no time to address his ultimate fate.
Game of Thrones is no Westworld, but we Westerosi can fall down conspiracy holes all the same. So it was with Ned Stark’s curiously inaudible last words from Season 1, which Sean Bean himself has finally put to rest.
Game of Thrones fans have at least another year before HBO brings the saga to a close, but the end has already come for many involved. Case in point, network bosses tease that a recent finale reading had cast member after cast member “falling down to their deaths.”
Game of Thrones may be headed for an eighth and final chapter, but don’t expect George R.R. Martin to follow suit. Despite some recent comments hinting the Song of Ice and Fire series may not close at seven novels, Martin has taken to his favored pastime of correcting LiveJournal comments.
