the book series by George R. R. Martin, on which the show was based, is yet to be completed. The Winds of Winter is supposed to be the next book in the series, and George has been working on it for a while now.
The gag shows George R. R. Martin watching an episode of Opal on YouTube, which is The Simpsons’ parody of Oprah. A voice outside his room calls him out, asking him to finish the book. GRRM is shown grumbling and lying about finishing the book before returning to watching another YouTube video.
In the real world, though, George R. R. Martin is likely almost done writing (and procrastinating about) The Winds of Winter. In December, he revealed that he has about 400-500 pages left to write.
We hope Winds of Winter is released in 2023! Talk to us on our Discord server!
