Given the amount of time it takes George R.R. Martin to craft and publish the next installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, it’s looking more and more likely that Game of Thrones will end before the final volume is published. Add in that the producers are saying they believe seven seasons of the show would be a good run for the series, that means the TV show could SPOIL the novels.
According to EW, producers Dan Weiss and David Benioff are aware of where Martin plans to take the series and conclude it.
“Ideally, the books come out first,” Benioff says, adding that he and Weiss are aware of the broad strokes of where the novels go.
It’s still possible Martin could get the final two installments in the novel series out before the series gets to its seventh season.
But we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
