johndance Posted February 26, 2014 Share Posted February 26, 2014 I agree that seven seasons is the likeliest scenario. Eight is possible. Nine is a very remote option. In any case, having "A Dream of Spring" before April 2017 or even April 2018 seems like a very implausible preposition. Even more delusional is to think that HBO will "wait" for the books. If anything, HBO's owners are interested in overcoming the books! Being able to promote a season as "new for television" or "be the first to know about the fate of Westeros" will surely bring in more viewers and notoriety. The question is no longer "if", but "when". As for myself, I curse the the day GRRM sold the TV rights. Couldn't agree more. After reading this thread and thinking logically about it, it seems like there is a very slim chance that the show will not overtake the books. Let's simplify this and say the last season of the show will run through 2018 (8 seasons total). Does anyone really think GRRM will put out 2 more books by then. I just don't see it.
