I've been reading some interesting stuff lately and I would like to know if anyone else here has read the same.
Apparently HBO offered the producers of GOT ample funding for the final two seasons of the show to have 10 episodes each but for whatever reason, the producers declined the offer and instead chose to make the last two seasons a lower number of episodes. While this was going on, the producers of GOT also got that new Star Wars deal signed with Disney so speculation is going around that the producers got itchy feet and wanted to wrap up GOT sooner rather than later so they could do the SW project and other projects as well.
If that turns out to be true then that was a pretty crappy thing for the producers to do to the fans.
