I wish this show had gone 10-13 seasons like George RR Martin thought it should. HBO 👎
There is no way in the world they could have sustained the show for that long.
Why do you think that? Not even 10 seasons?
First this is a very difficult show to produce year and year just because of the logistics and weather. Now through in a very large cast, who pretty much can't be replaced (I think only one major character was recast early in the show.) The two girls--now women--both struggled with various mental issues over the years. Sophie Turner had to deal with years of people hating on her character (though I'm not one of them) until Sansa's major character change.
It's much easier to go 12 seasons on The Big Bang when everyone lives around LA and you're not outside battling the elements.
