The Game of Thrones ending continues to be discussed.
As we know, most fans were disappointed with the conclusion of what, without a shadow of a doubt, was one of the most important series in the history of television.
Many accused the show of having moved away from the atmosphere described by George RR Martin in his books and from this point of view it should also be noted that showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss at some point were forced to overcome what Martin said, given that the literary saga has not yet ended.
Did they do it with the help of the author? Apparently not.
Interviewed by the New York Times , George RR Martin said:
When seasons 5 and 6 came I was definitely out of the loop, and I was totally out of the loop in 7 and 8.
The reason for this decision? Unknown…
I don’t know, you have to ask Dan and David.
Martin also talked about the sense of dissatisfaction that has now taken root in fans, and how this could affect the success of House of the Dragon , the Game of Thrones prequel series that will tell the story of House Targaryen .
People say they’re done with Game of Thrones: “They ruined my vision, I won’t watch the new series.” But, in short, are we talking about a million people or are they a thousand? People who have nothing to do but be on Twitter all day. I do not know.
