Weiss recently sat down with Vanity Fair:

He explains:

“It doesn’t just keep on going because it can,”

“I think the desire to milk more out of it is what would eventually kill it, if we gave in to that.”

It is unclear when George R.R. Martin will release the final two novels in the series, “The Winds of Winter” and “A Dream of Spring”. Benioff and Weiss are working closely with Martin to ensure the show stays on course with the storyline of the books.

Benioff explains:

“Last year we went out to Santa Fe for a week to sit down with him [Martin] and just talk through where things are going, because we don’t know if we are going to catch up and where exactly that would be. If you know the ending, then you can lay the groundwork for it. And so we want to know how everything ends. We want to be able to set things up. So we just sat down with him and literally went through every character.”

Martin adds:

“I can give them the broad strokes of what I intend to write, but the details aren’t there yet. I’m hopeful that I can not let them catch up with me.”

“Game of Thrones” season 4 is set to premiere on April 6 on HBO.
