Remember when all everybody was talking about was how disappointing the final three episodes of Game of Thrones were? According to George R.R. Martin, the show was never meant to end that way.
Speaking with Welt, the Game of Thrones book series writer revealed that the series was not supposed to end as quickly as it did. He revealed that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss had actually planned to conclude the series with three feature-length movies.
“Game of Thrones was supposed to end in cinema. It was seriously discussed four to five years ago,” Martin told the German publication.
Apparently, HBO was against that plan, arguing its bread and butter was television, not movies.
