Game of Thrones author George RR Martin revealed in a recent blog that he is making a lot of progress on The Winds of Winter in isolation.

While the Game of Thrones HBO series might have wrapped up A Song of Ice and Fire on television, fans are still looking forward to George RR Martin’s next two books. The Game of Thrones book series still has a two more to go: The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.

George RR Martin has teased that the book series might end differently than Game of Thrones‘ divisive last season, despite David Benioff and DB Weiss knowing major plot points. In a recent blog post, George RR Martin revealed that he has been hard at work on The Winds of Winter due to isolation from the coronavirus:

“For those of you who may be concerned for me personally… yes, I am aware that I am very much in the most vulnerable population, given my age and physical condition.   But I feel fine at the moment, and we are taking all sensible precautions.  I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff, and I’m not going in to town or seeing anyone.   Truth be told, I am spending more time in Westeros than in the real world, writing every day.   Things are pretty grim in the Seven Kingdoms… but maybe not as grim as they may become here.”

When do you think The Winds of Winter will be released? Feel free to make a prediction in the comments below!

Here is the synopsis for the Game of Thrones HBO series:
