George R. R. Martin offered some insight into the latest installment in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds Of Winter and — spoiler — it’s quite different than the ending of HBO’s Game Of Thrones series.

In an interview with Martin’s Not A Blog website, Martin said some of the things fans saw in Game Of Thrones will be included “But much of the rest will be quite different.”

Martin said the changes are inevitable because of the size of his books and the inclusion of dozens of more characters.

He did clarify that not all the deaths of characters will align with the TV series.

“Not all of the characters who survived until the end of Game Of Thrones will survive until the end of A Song Of Ice And Fire, and not all of the characters who died on Game Of Thrones will die in A Song Of Ice And Fire,’” Martin said in the interview.

Martin is currently helping produce several Game Of Thrones spinoff series for HBO including Tales of Dunk Egg and House of the Dragon, according to Polygon. – Tom Matthews/masslive.com/Tribune News Service
