HBO May Kill Off Game of Thrones Characters Who Aren’t Killed in Books

By Dianna Dilworth 

HBO’s Game of Thrones may not go on forever. In addition, the TV series may even kill off characters that don’t die in the books, according to the series’  author George R.R. Martin.

In an interview at The Writers Guild West Awards with showbiz411 Martin revealed the news. Martin said that HBO has picked up the sixth series but we’ll have to wait and see if they will sign more. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

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.”
