‘Game of Thrones’ George R.R. Martin to Cameo in Season 4, Not Season 3
Earlier this week we were delighted to hear that ‘Game of Thrones‘ series creator and author George R.R. Martin would have a brief cameo in the upcoming third season, having previously been cut from the series premiere back in 2011. Now, HBO claims that news of Martin’s cameo were inaccurate, and that the author will instead make an appearance in season 4! So does that mean…come on HBO, just make it official already!
Just over a week from the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 premiere, and a fourth season of the HBO drama seems like a foregone conclusion, even if HBO has yet to make an official confirmation. With that said, the network recently took it on itself to correct reports from the recent ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 panel at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, in which series show-runner David Benioff revealed that Martin would make a cameo in the third season.
HBO confirmed to Deadline that filming on season 3 had already completed with no plans to add a cameo for George R.R. Martin, but rather Benioff’s words refer to a potential cameo for the ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ author in season 4. You know, that fourth season they haven’t confirmed at all, wink wink, nudge nudge.
‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 will premiere on Sunday March 31 with “Valar Doheris,” while rumors of a prequel TV series make the rounds, so what say you? Do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 is an official go, if HBO plans for George R.R. Martin to film a cameo? What would you like to see from the third and fourth seasons?
