During the first seasons of game of ThronesGeorge RR Martin actively participated in the creative team of the series, so although the author of the books that inspired the program did not have the final decision in many cases since that was the task of the showrunners, DB Weiss and David Benioff, Martin did collaborate on scripts, consult on casting decisions and visit the set during the early cycles of HBO’s hit venture.

But although the active collaboration of the creator of Westeros could be considered a good thing for the development of an adaptation of Song of ice and firethe author himself confirmed that your participation in game of Thrones decreased as the seasons progressed.

During a recent conversation with New York Times about House of The DragonMartin said that “in seasons 5 and 6, and certainly in seasons 7 and 8, I was pretty much out of the loop”. However, the author acknowledged that he does not know why he was excluded from that part of the series. “I don’t know, you have to ask Dan and David”, Martin pointed out when asked about the reasons for his estrangement from behind the scenes of Game of Thrones

Although the fifth and sixth seasons of game of Thrones are valued by many fans, the same certainly cannot be said about their successors and in particular the controversial eighth season.

However, while nothing ensures that the end of game of Thrones It would have been better with a greater influence of Martin in the creative team, the author reiterated that his ending for the literary saga will be different from the series.

“My end will be very different”, sMartin understood after acknowledging that he is “very very late” with what will be Winter Winds.

While for now we can only speculate how different the ending of Martin’s books will be from game of Thronesit is already clear that House of the Dragonthe new series of Westeros in which the author actively participated, will have at least three different elements than the popular series that aired between 2011 and 2019.

House of the Dragon It will premiere this August 21 on HBO Max.
