With numerous shows being cancelled, it should be noted there are a few television productions that have been given one last hurrah.
Globally, the HBO series “Game of Thrones” has been immensely popular. Created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the action adventure drama stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams, to name just a few of the extraordinary talents that proliferate in each episode.
The IMDb description for the series, in boiling down the premise to a single sentence, reads, “Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while a forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years.”
Based on the George R.R. Martin written “Game of Thrones” novel series, by Benioff and Weiss have successfully proven the genre works every bit as much for television as it does the big screen.
In many cases, television and film producers fail to recognise the importance of the phrase “always leave them wanting more.” It’s advantage of having the power of restraint. This series is being ended while it is still on a significant high. In years to come, fans will look back with fondness of the production and recall how good it was.
“Jumping the shark” is not something “Game of Thrones” producers should ever contemplate.
