Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin suggested that the book series has a different ending than the HBO adaptation.
While Game of Thrones was an almost universally acclaimed series in its early years, the final seasons of the HBO series were largely derided and the conclusion of the show received significant criticism. Fortunately, readers of the A Song of Ice and Fire books still have two more installments of the series to look forward to, the first being The Winds of Winter.
However, George R. R. Martin suggested that the books might have a different ending than the series during an interview with Welt. When asked if the Game of Thrones series concluding before he could finish his books put pressure on him, George R. R. Martin noted that fans know “an ending” but not “the ending”:
“People know an ending – but not THE ending. The show makers have passed me which I hadn’t expect. Nevertheless, I will continue to do what I have been doing for the past years: I still try to finish the next book “Winds of Winter” and then the following novel “A Dream Of Spring”. These are the things I am concentrating on. After that, we will see.”

In October, HBO officially announced Game of Thrones prequel from George R. R. Martin and Ryan Condal titled House of the Dragon. Centered on the downfall of House Targaryen, the prequel is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
Another Game of Thrones prequel set roughly 5,000 years before the events of George R. R. Martin’s original story was initially planned before HBO scrapped the project. Directed and executive produced by S. J. Clarkson, the pilot featured an ensemble cast that included Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Toby Regbo, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Alex Sharp, Miranda Richardson, Marquis Rodriguez, John Simm, Richard McCabe, John Heffernan, and Dixie Egerickx.
