Game of Thrones is famous (also infamous) for the deaths of its characters. Some have been brutal, some have been shocking, others came out of nowhere. What might surprise fans most though is that the upcoming season of Game of Thrones will feature deaths not done in the book.
How do we know? George R.R. Martin said so himself:
“People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy,” Martin states “So everybody better be on their toes. David and D.B. are even bloodier than I am.”
Indeed. This could lead to further changes in the stories as seasons go on. Which leads to the question, when will the show end?
“This is the fifth season, the sixth season HBO picked up last year. We will have a 7th, 8th or 9th, no one knows. They only renew one or two seasons at a time. After we do season 6, maybe we’ll get a renewal for 7th and 8th. That all depends, Television is a very changeable medium…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.”
Season 5 of Game of Thrones arrives April 12.
