‘Game Of Thrones’ co-creator D.B. Weiss says it’s “time to move on”

"It was time to move on and get excited and terrified about building something else"

Game of Thrones co-creator D.B. Weiss has reiterated that he and David Benioff will continue to move away from the franchise.

Discussing their new Netflix film Metal Lords with Entertainment Weekly, Weiss called the Game of Thrones era “the best decade of our lives”.

“All in, we were 11 years, probably, doing that show. When I say 11 years, it was full on, all in, all day, every day for 11 years,” he said.

“It was the best decade of our lives. It still kind of feels a bit like a dream, but we got to a place where it was pretty clear to us that we had reached the end of what made sense for us to be involved with in that world that we lived.

“It just felt like, for us, it was time to move on and get excited and terrified about building something else — building lots of something elses.”

He added: “We never saw more Game of Thrones shows [as] something that made sense for us to be involved with, given where we were just as people at the time we were done with the original.”

Meanwhile, Samwell Tarly actor John Bradley recently said that he thinks Game of Thrones fans “lost their minds” over the show’s finale.

“The fan reaction was so fierce and vociferous, when people think of Game Of Thrones, they have a sense of disappointment because they didn’t like the finale,” he told NME.

Forthcoming prequel series House of the Dragon is set to be released later this year.
