Game of Thrones author begged HBO for ten seasons

Wait, we could have had two more seasons of Game Of Thrones?

Apparently yes, if Game Of Thrones creator and original author George RR Martinwishes were granted. In a new book titled Tinderbox: HBO’s ruthless pursuit of the new frontier, journalist James Andrew Miller reports that according to Martin’s agent, Paul haas, Martin flew to New York to implore an HBO executive to make the series 10 seasons.

Miller conducted 757 interviews for the book, including with Martin, Haas and Richard plepler, former CEO of HBO.

“George would fly to New York to have lunch with Plepler, beg him to do ten ten-episode seasons because there was enough material for it and tell him it would be a more satisfying and entertaining experience,” he said. Haas told Miller in an interview for the book.

While the Miller and HBO executives would have liked to have had more seasons of the show, the showrunners of the show, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, had different plans.
