Game of Thrones and my Sunday cable television


Game of Thrones returns Sunday while Walking Dead wraps up the season Sunday also. What would ever happen if my glorious cable tv shows ended? True Blood returns Sundays this summer, I am thankful to have my television shows, but what if it ended?

George R. R. Martin is a notoriously slow writer. A well-known fact that worried many fans who wished to watch Game of Thrones but were unwilling to commit, fearing Martin might not be able to write the end of the book series before the television show caught up to the books.

Thankfully according to the Game of Thrones’ showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, Martin sat down with them and took them through the entire plot — all the way to the end — spoiling them for who actually wins the Iron Throne. [See here] Ooh... 

So even though the newest A Song of Ice and Firebook, The Winds of Winter, does not have a release date, readers should be confident that although Martin is still writing it, it will make an appearance sooner than later. He even is offering up an entire chapter for preview.
