If you didn’t get into Game of Thrones while it aired on television, that’s okay. But surely you remember that you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing at least someone talking about it.
Now, with the release of the highly-anticipated series, House of the Dragon (which became the largest premiere on HBO ever), author George R.R. Martin is getting candid about how he practically begged HBO to make more seasons of its parent series, but failed to make it happen (sad face).
The show’s co-creators wanted to end Game of Thrones after just eight seasons. But apparently, Martin fought for the show to have more seasons.
