Game of Thrones returns April 12th, 2015.
Has anyone else been losing sleep over the final Game of Thrones books not being finished? HBO certainly isn’t and they have released a statement that the show will continue on without the final books being published yet.
“We’re not concerned about it,” HBO Programming chief Michael Lombardo admitted at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Thursday, in response to worries that the TV series may outpace author George R.R. Martin’s ability to finish the next novel.
“We’re not off on our own,” he noted. “George is an integral part of the creative team [and] every move is being choreographed very closely with him. We’ll have to figure it out with George. We’re in conversations with him.”
HBO has also come forward and stated, that a film will not wrap up the series.
Maniacs, is this a good thing or a bad thing? Much like The Walking Dead, the Game of Thrones TV series has deviated from some of the story lines. Does this make you want to finish the TV series and then read the books? Are they two different animals all together? Sound off below!
