The tale of the Game of Thrones season 8 controversy still lives in the minds of the die-hard fans. It has been nearly three years since HBO’s money-making mint wrapped up filming, but people can’t stop talking about it. After all, the highly popular and record-breaking show divided its fandom with a controversial and a rather rushed-up final season. Not just the fans, but the cast of the series is split up upon the issue. Even the prequel House of The Dragon’s director Greg Yaitanes admits Game of Thrones should have continued for a few more seasons.

In a recent discussion on The Golden Hours Podcast, Yaitanes describes how their work on House of The Dragon is inspired by the early seasons of Game of Thrones, where the primary focus was to tell a compelling story that made sense. He said, “Some of the…ingenuity they had, especially in the early seasons, really lent themselves to how we were going to make the show.”

He continued, “I wish [Game of Thrones] had gone on for a couple more seasons and spread out that story, because it was so much and so intense, I needed more than a week to digest one of those moves. They’re talking about our show all throughout the series. They’re talking about this time of the Targaryen dynasty all throughout the original Game of Thrones. I love when characters are messy and conflicted…Everybody’s a contradiction. People are good and bad and kind and mean….that’s what makes a character great.”
