The game of Thrones' creator admits he was left out of the loop in later seasons

The game of Thrones' creator admits he was left out of the loop in later seasons ...

George RR Martin, the author of Game of Thrones, claims he was kicked out of the HBO show's inner circle after season 4.

GOT became one of the most-celebrated TV dramas in history, although by the time Arya Stark began her Faceless Men training on screen, his involvement had significantly diminished.

"I was pretty much out of the loop by season 5 and 6, and certainly 7 and 8," Martin said in a recent interview with The New York Times.

"I don't know you have to ask Dan [B Weiss] and David [Benioff] to explain your separation," he replied.

Martin's expectations of season 6, which his agent Paul Haas previously discussed, continue in the following ways: "George loves [showrunners Benioff and Weiss], but after season 5, he began to worry about the direction they would take because George knows where the narrative takes.

"He started saying, "You are not following my template."

Martin has also promised that his A Song of Fire and Ice ending would be different from that of the series.

"My stories develop and change as I write them. I generally know where I am going, sure... the final destinations, the big set pieces, they have been in my head for years... for decades, in the case of A Song of Ice and Fire.

"There are a lot of devils in the details," he wrote on his blog last month. Sometimes the ground changes beneath my feet as the words pour forth.

"Some of the things you saw on HBO in Game of Thrones will be visible in The Winds of Winter (though perhaps not in the same ways), but most of the rest will be quite different."

Seasons 1-8 of Game of Thrones are now available on DVD and Blu-ray. House of the Dragon will air on HBO on August 21 in the United States, and on August 22 in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
