Game Of Thrones Could’ve Lasted 13 Seasons, Says George R.R Martin

As we all know, Game of Thrones is sadly coming to an end in 2019 but according to George R. R Martin the show could have gone on for a lot longer.

Appearing on the red carpet for the Emmys, Martin told Variety: “We could have gone to 11, 12, 13 seasons. But I guess [Daniel Weiss and David Benioff] wanted a life.”

He also added: “If you’ve read my novels, you know there was enough material for more seasons.

“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.”

Boo!

The world isn’t yet ready to let go of Game of Thrones, and now that filming has officially ended it seems the cast aren’t willing to either…

Some of Game of Thrones‘ most badass women have commemorated their roles in the show with some pretty stellar ink.
