HBO Hints at How Long 'Game of Thrones' Might Keep Going THR
HBO executives offered a clue Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour about how long “Game of Thrones” might stay on the air.
The execs said they'll keep the show going as long as author George R.R. Martin keeps writing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
That could be quite some time, as Martin this month released the fifth novel in his series, "Dance of Dragons," which clocks in at 1,040 pages.
"The truth is when you see how thrilled he is with the production, we know we’ve succeeded partially by his satisfaction," HBO Co-President Richard Plepler said at the TCA event. "We told George we’d go as long as he kept writing."
