Game of Thrones executives have admitted that the show is nearly halfway through it’s run.
Speaking to The Los Angeles Times, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed that while the number of seasons that the show will run for has yet to be determined, they do not want the show to outstay it’s welcome.
“The point going into it was that we wanted to start at the beginning and work our way through to the end, work our way through to the point beyond which there was no reason to keep telling the story because it was over. How long exactly that’s going to take and what form it’s going to take is obviously something that needs to be determined as we go.”
“The main thing is not wanting to outstay our welcome. There is a tendency, I think, to, if something goes well, you want to stick with it and just keep it going forever and ever. As much fun as we’re having with this — I certainly haven’t had more fun on anything — part of the reason we love this story so much is because it’s a single story. This very much has a beginning and an end and we’re nearly halfway there.”
Game of Thrones airs it’s third season finale this coming Sunday.
