The main problem every fantasy fan had with Game of Thrones Season 8 was its departure from its soul; it felt rushed, filled with plotholes, and overall didn’t feel like something George R. R. Martin would write. While most blame David Benioff and D. B. Weiss for the controversial finale, one cannot rule out the fact they didn’t even have a source material to follow after A Dance with DragonsHouse of The Dragon showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik want to avoid all of that by going straight to the author, George R. R. Martin.

In a new clip released by HBO, Martin seems to be quite confident in their abilities to carry on the great legacy of the original show. He said, “I’m excited. It’s always a little apprehensive when you turn your baby over to foster parents, but I’m involved in this. It’s great to have Ryan, who’s a great writer, and someone who really knew my world. He’s gonna do his best to remain faithful to it. I knew Miguel Sapochnik was an amazing director. He’d won an Emmy, he’d done some of our best episodes. There’s always a little suspense to: How good is it gonna be? But I think I’m in good hands with Ryan and Miguel (chuckles).”

Sapochnik added, “I feel incredibly loyal and responsible to the original show. I have a great kind of desire to even be in the same room as that show because it was a game changer. George and his writing was a huge influence on me. It’s an incredible feeling to achieve my dream job. You get that great call, which is the thing that every writer is hoping for, telling you, ‘We’re gonna go make this thing.’ And you’re happy for a few seconds… and then you realize the responsibility that’s on your shoulders.”
