Written by ebookingservices

‘Game of Thrones’ It has already gone down in history as one of the most followed series. A plot that has conquered the entire world and was based, at least in principle, on the novels of George R. R. Martinwho has been linked to the series from the beginning and until almost the end, when it surpassed the books.

The adaptation continued its course until almost the end of a plot that they had to interpret David Benoff Y DB Weissthe showrunners, who they worked based on their feelings after his story went blank after ‘Dance of Dragons’the novel that was published in 2011.

Now, 11 years later, the famous writer is still immersed in ‘Winds of winter’, the sixth installment of the sagaof which he has previously said that It will be very different from what has been shown in the HBO Max series, a plot that has been highly criticized since the last episodes were broadcast. And it is that everything has a reason, and now Martin has wanted to make it clear in an interview granted to ‘New York Times’.

The American writer has confessed that he had very little to do with the end of ‘Game of Thrones’: “In seasons 5 and 6, and of course in 7 and 8, I was very far from the series”. A confession that has led him to be asked about the reason for his distance from him, to which he has responded evasively: “I don’t know, you’d have to ask DB Weiss and David Benioff”.

Still Executive Producer

The truth is that, despite the fact that George RR Martin did not write any episode of the mentioned seasons, yes, he has served as executive producer, as he has also done in the prequel to the series, ‘The house of the dragon’suggesting that there is no bad relationship in the management of the plot.

Now it’s time to wait for August 21, when the prequel to ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘The House of the Dragon’, will be released on HBO Max, just a few days before another of the sagas that intend to break all the records, that of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’which will premiere on September 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
