The writer, who is the creator of Westeros and its many inhabitants, doesn’t think that season eight should be the final batch of episodes.
Martin created the book series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire,’ which is the source material for ‘Thrones’ showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss.
Speaking to ‘The Hollywood Reporter,’ Martin said: “I don’t think it should be the final season. But here we are. It seems to me we just started last week. Has it been longer than that? The time has passed by in a blur.
He continued: “But it’s exciting. I know it’s an end, but it’s not much of an end for me. I’m still deep in writing the books. We saw five other sequel shows in development. I think I’m going to be hanging around Westeros while everyone else has left.”
The “sequel shows” he mentions includes a prequel series starring Josh Whitehouse and Naomi Watts that will be set thousands of years before the events of ‘Game of Thrones.’
Fans will also hope Martin will finish work on the series’ final books: ‘The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.’
The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ reaches TV screens 14 April.
