As Game Of Thrones is approaching its final episode on May 19th, we can only imagine how sad this must be for the cast members who have helped bring the show to where it is now. The same goes for George R.R. Martin, best known for his series of epic fantasy novels which was adapted into the HBO series Game of Thrones.
According to an interview with Rolling Stone, Martin is wishing that the show could have lasted a couple more seasons.
“You know, it’s complex. I’m a little sad, actually. I wish we had a few more seasons. But I understand. Dave and Dan are gonna go on to do other things, and I’m sure some of the actors were signed up for like seven or eight years, and they would like to go on and take other roles. All of that is fair. I’m not angry or anything like that, but there’s a little wistfulness in me.”
Martin goes on by discussing how emotions are harder to deal with when a show has lasted for so long. Martin has spent a large part of his years around the cast and crew. After building relationships with people who have been intensely involved in his life, it will take some adjusting especially since he will no longer work with them for the time being.
Martin is a big fan of the Game of Thrones TV adaptation and advised that he never stopped watching the show despite it going beyond his territory. Martin stated that he has not seen any footage or read the final scripts to the series, but he feels that the series’ end will not be that different from his ending.
Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 will air on HBO Sunday, April 28 at 9 p.m. Eastern.
