Game of Thrones became a household name since it came out in 2011. Based on the popular novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, by author George R. R. Martin, it became highly popular when it was broadcasted by HBO. Some fans started reading the book only after they watched the first season of the series.
George R. R. Martin had completed five books when Game of Thrones started, and fans were very confident that by the time HBO would start filming the fifth season, Martin would have been done with the sixth book, Winds of Winter. This, however, didn’t happen in reality.
The fans of A Song of Ice and Fire are still waiting for Winds of Winter, but there is no official confirmation on when Martin will be done with the sixth novel in the series.
Since HBO was done with the fifth season of Game of Thrones and had to start the production of the sixth season, they decided to go ahead with the story on their own. The fans of the novel weren’t happy with this news since they felt that Game of Thrones Season 6 is going to spoil the story for them, and the wait for Winds of Winter will not be worth it.
This was when George R. R. Martin and the creators of Game of Thrones, D.B. Weiss, and David Benioff came out to assure the fans that Season 6 of Game of Thrones isn’t going to spoil Winds of Winter.
HBO will be going ahead with the story on their own, and Martin would be carrying on his own, which meant that neither of the two sides would know how the story would shape up until it was complete.
The fans were a little skeptical about how Game of Thrones will shape up since HBO didn’t have a novel to fall back on. The story has a long character history and HBO had to take care of it all while working on taking the story forward.When HBO started with Game of Thrones Season 6, the fans weren’t very happy in the first two episodes, but then things started changing.
HBO decided to bring back Jon Snow back from the dead, which was the easiest way to win over the fans and with every passing episode, it proved to the fans that they have a story that is going to keep them thinking. Given how popular Game of Thrones has become, HBO has come out with a rather quirky way to get some more viewers for the show.
There is an entire set of people who have heard about Game of Thrones from their close ones but haven’t yet ventured there. In case they want to dive into the show now, they have a vast history of five seasons that they have to deal with before they can come abreast with what happened in Season 6 of Game of Thrones.
This is where the latest video by Samuel L. Jackson has caught the attention of netizens. The video has Jackson delving out the whole history of the Game of Thrones series in a hilarious, concise and brutally honest manner. While Samuel L. Jackson covers all the important characters and elements, he skillfully manages to glide over some of the most important spoilers for Game of Thrones.
