We're way beyond the rough idea stage with that plan. From there it becomes, you know, the further away things get, the more blurry your view of them becomes. But there, in the third book, there are a lot of wonderful places in terms of scenes and situations and events that we can see very clearly, we know, we're not entirely sure how our characters will get to that place. , but we know they have to get to that place. Because that place and that place and that place is the reason why we picked up these books and wanted to adapt them in the first place,” Benioff said.

I think it's twice as long as the other two books. So maybe it's one season, maybe it's two seasons. But, you know, I think we'll need at least three, maybe four seasons to tell the whole story,” collider Benoif quoted.
