George R.R. Martin says ‘Game of Thrones’ books will have different ending than TV show

Winter’s not coming, but a new ending could be.

Fantasy novels author George R.R. Martin has revealed in a new interview that the long-anticipated final two books of the “Game of Thrones” series will feature a different ending than the TV show that concluded in 2019.

Following a divisive final season, fans have done everything from demanding HBO try again to peppering Martin for updates on his unfinished books.

Martin teased his devout followers with a tantalizing idea: something else.

Speaking with WTTW in Chicago, Martin said the unfinished “The Winds of Winter” and untitled final book (rumored to be “A Dream of Spring”) will go in a “somewhat different [direction]” than the TV production.

Martin put some of the blame for the show’s ending on his own writer’s block that led to the show needing new material for several seasons that he hadn’t yet written.

“Looking back, I wish I’d stayed ahead of the books,” Martin said. “My biggest issue there was when they began the series, I had four books already in print, and the fifth one came out just as the series was starting in 2011. I had a five-book head-start, and these are gigantic books, as you know; I never thought they would catch up with me, but they did.”

“They caught up with me and passed me,” Martin said. “That made it a little strange, because now the show was ahead of me, and the show was going in somewhat different directions. I’m still working on the book, but you’ll see my ending when that comes out.”

While the idea of a different ending for the series is a welcome prospect for some, fans will probably have to keep waiting as the notoriously slow-moving Martin did not provide an update about when the books might actually come out.

“I will make no predictions on when I will finish,” Martin said. “Every time I do, a------- on the internet take that as a ‘promise’, and then wait eagerly to crucify me when I miss the deadline. All I will say is that I am hopeful.”

South Park had an episode making fun in the delay in the next book- it aired in 2013! It’s been over a decade. It has become more of a “if” it gets finished rather than “when”

He said the book was finished he was just going through it to finalize it. I’m almost 100% sure this dude seen the reactions to the last 2 seasons of GOT and went back and started changing sh*t.

It's a trip that the show fell off because the book wasnt finished and it could no longer follow the books. What this tell me is that I coulda ran the show and it would have been just as successful as it was. I culda Luke Walton 2016 Golden Stated that thing... Show runners were trash and I don't wanna see sh*t else from them

I wish that was the issue. Most of that sh*t is notes. He just corrects certain things chronologically and flesh out certain things. sh*ts so disappointing. I understand that it’s a process and he should be given time. But 10 years! The last sample chapter we got came out in what spring 2016? No real updates, just bullsh*t. Lmfao sh*t pisses me off
