According to Deadline.com, “George R.R. Martin, on whose fantasy book series HBO‘s hit drama Game Of Thrones is based, has signed a two-year overall deal with the pay cable network. Under the pact, Martin will continue as co-executive producer on Game Of Thrones, whose Season 3 premieres March 31. Additionally, he will develop and produce new series projects for the network.”
Are you serious? More projects for George? Personally — and I’m sure a lot of fans of the series feel this way — he needs to concentrate on finishing the last two books in the series before undertaking new projects. Now granted, he can do whatever he wants, and I don’t blame him for wanting to take a break from the series and do other stuff; just as a fan, I’d like to see him finish the series because of the time we’ve invested as readers. At this rate, he is producing a new book about once every five years, and at his age, who knows? Will it become like Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series and George will never finish it?
