Game of Thrones: 10 Seasons and Possibility of a Feature Film

By   /   Mar 15, 2015

George R. R. Martin discloses on his blog that there is a possibility of running the show up to ten seasons and even a hundred million feature film.

With less than a month left in Game of Thrones season five worldwide premieres, Martin writes on his official LiveJournal about how he is frequently asked about the number of seasons Game of Thrones is going to have.

“This discussion is nothing new, of course. I get asked similar questions every time I make a public appearance, do an interview, or walk a red carpet. My usual answer is a variant on, ‘I don’t know how many seasons the show will run.’ I don’t know. No one knows,”

He further adds that David & Dan who are the creators and originators of the show see it ending up in seven seasons however; HBO hopes to extend it to ten years.

“I do know that David & Dan have stated in interviews that they see the show winding up in seven seasons … I also know that HBO wants the series to run longer than that. I have known that since the very beginning… One of HBO’s top execs, who told me, ‘We want this to run ten years.’ I allowed that ten years sounded fine to me. I continue to hear similar sentiments from HBO every time I have meeting with them, be it in L.A. or New York,”

Martin discussed the possibility of concluding the show with a feature film. He further adds that as much as he loves this idea but he is not the originator here, it was just a concept and he very eagerly jumped right into it.

“The notion of concluding the series with one or more feature films. Let me state, yet again, that while I love this idea, it did NOT originate with me. It was a notion suggested to me, which I have enthusiastically endorsed. Sure, I love the idea. Why not? What fantasist would not love the idea of going out with an epic hundred million-feature film? And the recent success of the IMAX experience shows that the audience is there for such a movie. If we build it, they will come. But will we build it? I have no bloody idea.”

Game of Thrones season 5 premieres worldwide on Sunday, April 12.
