Ahead of the premiere of House of the Dragon, unique creator George R. R. Martin has expressed his frustration in regards to the unique Game of Thrones collection getting minimize quick. After eight seasons, Game of Thrones ended controversially with many followers essential of the ultimate episodes. One frequent criticism was that the ultimate season felt “rushed” with each main storyline reaching a sudden conclusion.
Martin appears to agree with that sentiment, feeling that Game of Thrones wanted to be for much longer to finish the collection correctly. Speaking in regards to the present in an interview with the Wall Street Journal (per Variety), Martin mirrored on Game of Thrones‘ eight-season run. He laments how he tried to stand up to 13 seasons, insisting that it wanted at the least ten full seasons, however none of that was as much as him.
“I was saying it needs to be 10 seasons at least and maybe 12, 13. I lost that one… I had no contribution to the later seasons except, you know, inventing the world, the story and all the characters. I believe I have more influence now [on ‘House of the Dragon’] than I did on the original show.”
Will House of the Dragon Go Ten Seasons?
As Martin notes, he’s extra closely concerned with the model new spinoff collection, House of the Dragon. The first season will include ten episodes and it isn’t but clear how lengthy the present will go on, because it probably relies upon upon viewership and important reception. Season 2 hasn’t been greenlit right now, however we will presume that there shall be extra seasons to come back if season 1 is a success. Will that go as much as ten seasons? That’s not clear, however the collection showrunners do have an endgame already in thoughts.
“We have a very, very precise idea of where we wanna go with it, but we can’t tell you,” co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik told Comicbook.com. “I think that the important thing is that this is a… Think of this as an Episode IV, the Star Wars Episode IV. So it’s kind of, we’re in the middle of a history that is rich and full of stories to tell and it’s a good place to start.”
Of what’s to come back within the fast future if season 2 occurs, co-showrunner Ryan Condal separately told Collider, “I think we have a fairly good plan laid out. Plans like that always have to be fairly broad, yet you have an idea of landmarks, and places that you want to go, and a sense of an end point, which I think is really important, particularly with this story. There’s 170 years of history in front of us, so you have to figure out, at what point do you do lower the curtain on this particular story? We’ve always had a good sense of that. I think we have a good plan for season 2, if HBO is willing and eager to continue telling the story with us.”
