We don’t know much about the new 5th season at the moment, but there are actors who claimed its release and this fact made the fans very hopeful about the upcoming episodes of their favorite series.

It has become previously known that the fifth season will be an adaptation of the fourth novel “A Feast for Crows” of the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. It’s worth mentioning that the HBO channel’s representatives and the writer George Martin have mentioned few times about possible difficulties they have to face during the shooting of the 5th and 6th seasons. A HBO representative has told recently: “The series has reached a point where the number of valid characters became so enormous that can crack at the seams, if we try to include into the series’ storylines more characters from the books. It is also problematic from the financial appoint of view. We do not want to jump between multiple characters and locations. It would be risky – we can lose the audience’s attention. It’s time to reduce the population in the series”. Also many critics talk about the problem with the pace of writing new books and the speed of filming of the new season of the TV show. Representatives of the channel hope that this problem won’t become crucial and filming will be continued in a habitual order. The writer himself does not see any problem with such pace, as he said many times in interviews. According to the latest news, script writers David Benioff and Dan Weiss have already signed a contract with HBO for at least 2 more seasons – 5th and 6th ones. The HBO President Michael Lombardo has recently commented in the interview to EW, that this pair is too valuable to let them go – “I’ve read a lot of scripts. David and Dan are not just good, they are exceptional writers. Their scripts are so dazzling, they look better than anything I’ve ever read”.
