six Posted March 2, 2014 Share Posted March 2, 2014 I know a lot of people will want to flay me for what I'm about to say. but... If season 7 or 8 comes before ADOS is even half done (and therefore D&D won't have any source material to adapt) I wish GRRM takes a sabbatical year from the books just to help writing the show, not just 1 episode, but work alongside D&D to give us a satisfying ending for his story (which apparently will come first in TV than the books). I mean, I will gladly wait one more year to read the book if that give us a good ending for this story No I agree with this. It's obvious we won't get the books before the show finishes, all speculation is wishful thinking because twow is nowhere near finished and ados is a mirage atm. So I too would prefer for grrm to be heavily involved, as to get an ending that very closely resembles the books in tone. Unfortunately, I think this is wishful thinking, too. That said, I can definitely see the Iron Islands story line getting cut down a lot more than the Dornish thread. Me too. Maybe Dorne won't have as much space as it does in the books, but they're already making a big deal with Oberyn's introduction, so it will definitely be a big part. Since they probably won't have the final two books to adapt in detail, they'll be working off outlines at best (I assume). In that case, I can't see them doing more than a season per book after the AFFC/ADWD adaptation. I expect it to go like this:Season 5 - AFFC/ADWDSeason 6 - TWOWSeason 7 - ADOS Yes, there! That's what I was trying to say. With no published books to adapt from, they'll be free to just take the main points and make it as long/short as it needs to be to fit in the upcoming seasons.
