Thats what the creators of the show said. 7 seasons. Not the way id do it...but its the way they plan on it. But they are gonna leave so much undone....

The World of Ice and fire book due out in October is gonna fill in so much that could no doubt be used in a prequel while they wait for the last book to be released. Like spartacus having to film a prequel when the actor passed away between season one and two.

But I bet they wont do it. HBO never really milks its shows. Even those they make money off. It isnt AMC needing walking dead to keep going just for the money.

Talk to the show runners:

“I would say it’s the goal we’ve had from the beginning,” Benioff says. “It was our unstated goal, because to start on a show and say your goal is seven seasons is the height of lunacy. Once we got to the point where we felt like we’re going to be able to tell this tale to its conclusion, that became [an even clearer] goal. Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons. It feels right to us.”

point taken, just in my defense, the pictures were from episode s4ep2.

Careful watching of the that episode alone could gave the identity of the killer.

personally thought season 2 was reasonably faithful to a clash of kings, except for the missing blackwater chain

Also season 3, the first part of storm of swords, except for the greyjoy storyline.

the problem is contracts

the show will become prohibitively more expensive to film as it goes on, once the primary, secondary and tertiary characters are off their first contract because of the exposure from the show their next contract will be substantially more costly. We will see many more daario paradoxes if this show gonna go 8+ seasons

The show and HBO as a network are both obscenely profitable, that shouldn't be an issue. Renewing the show for 2 seasons, something which they have NEVER done, should attest to that.

They canceled Carnivalé for being too expensive for this exact reason (and the set costs).

Does anyone have a map that includes a thumbnail of the character in their current locations right now? That would be sweet.

I agree with this a million.

http://towerofthehand.com/ - This is a good site if you want to read about stuff about the show, without spoilers. You just put in how many of the books you've read and how many of the seasons you've watched, and they won't post anything you haven't seen. (Not sure if this was in this thread.)

There's an interactive map: http://towerofthehand.com/maps/westeros.html

So maybe if they mention where they are in the episode you can look it up. I'm looking for an Android app I used to have that had a pretty good map.

BOOM.

But as it says, be careful how far you slide if you haven't read the books.

Carnivale didn't have the ratings, nor the popularity of GoT, albeit it probably did cost a lot less.
GoT is a household name right now with great ratings and they probably sell a shit ton of merchandise.
