Game of Thrones co-creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff talked about their plans for the HBO series in an interview with Variety, revealing that they opt to continue running the show for another four seasons.
We’ve got a very definitive idea of how much longer it is, and we’re getting there. We’ve just started writing episodes for season six. I think we’re heading into the home stretch. Hopefully, we’ll have a clear answer soon.
We could go another four years — and we could come up with good stories — but the one thing that really got us excited when we pitched this to HBO was that this isn’t just a regular series. It’s a real story with a beginning, a middle and an end.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9PM on HBO.
