Some Changes on Games of Thrones Season 6
Games of Thrones season 6 will be coming late within this year since production will start in July 2015 – which is considered late for a regular September premiere. After changing the platform of fairy tales and kingdom-based movie series, the fans are increasing – especially on the third season and fourth season. But all good things must end, eventually, and this flick is no different. It is planned to end in season 7, as the writer, George R.R. Martin, has confirmed that he won’t be writing for longer episodes for another season.
There are also some different things made different by HBO. After they have released official confirmation about the late premiere of season 6 on April the 8th 2014, they also decided that commissions for the fifth and also sixth seasons will be done altogether, which is a first for HBO – for such major series. Just like the other seasons, season 6 should consist of ten episodes, with show runners and executive producers – still D.B Weiss and David Benioff. The two producers are rumored to have signed their new contracts – two years time – since early 2014 so you can watch season 6 around spring 2016 – well, I’ve told you that they are going to have a late premiere.
George R.R Martin is apparently busy with his writing, since he is focusing on “The Winds of Winter”, another series for A Song of Ice and Fire series. Martin confirms through his blog that he won’t be continuing writing for another episode of Games of Thrones. He feels that writing has occupied much of his time, and with focusing on The Winds of Winter (as well as other projects), he won’t have much time for Games of Thrones. It takes him around 3 weeks to write a script and even longer time when it is not a direct adaption from the novel. He feels that he will be spending too much time on the script and not focusing on his work on Winds. That’s why he feels that his energy is best conserved for the Winds.
It is obvious that it is not an easy decision to leave the set, but D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have very much been familiar with Martin works and himself, so they should cover the show pretty well. They have made sure that they are going to cover some major points and plots that have been previously overlooked, so fans won’t feel any differences.
