As of the sixth season, the show has now overtaken the books, as Martin has yet to publish the sixth novel, ''The Winds Of Winter''. Benioff & Weiss have been informed by Martin of the basic plot of how the saga will end, and Martin has said that [[AuthorExistenceFailure if he dies]] before completing his intended final two books (''Winter'' and ''A Dream Of Spring'') he will [[GeckoEnding let the TV show's ending stand as the conclusion of the saga]]. Fans have been a little disappointed in this fact, as Weiss & Benioff have begun diverging from Martin's vision (to the point of incorporating plot points that Martin explicitly said the books would avoid), but at the same time have rejoiced that the remaining novels would have some relevance.

In the land of Westeros, seasons last for years, and the story opens with the threat of a ''long'' winter fast approaching. The GoodChancellor Jon Arryn has unexpectedly died. King Robert Baratheon ventures north to Winterfell to name his old friend, Eddard Stark, his new Hand and second-in-command. Despite the concerns of his wife, Catelyn, Eddard reluctantly accepts his new title out of duty. Once installed as the Hand, Ned begins to uncover evidence that Jon Arryn was murdered--and that the forces behind his death may now be poised to strike at the King. The investigation ultimately becomes the catalyst for events that lead several families into a bloody feud for the control of Westeros.

The series was adapted for television by screenwriters David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In describing the series to newcomers, Benioff jokingly called it "''Series/TheSopranos'' [[XmeetsY meets]] [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Middle-earth]]". The producers and Martin made a tentative plan for seven to eight seasons, with each season's arc meant to line up with its corresponding book. However, this ultimately only worked for the first two seasons, as Book 3 (on its own the length of the ''entire Lord Of The Rings trilogy'') was eventually split into two seasons, and then Books 4 and 5 were combined into a single season. Martin himself wrote an episode in each of the show's first four seasons.

However, as of the sixth season, the show has now overtaken the books, as Martin (as of April 2016, when the sixth season began to air) has yet to publish the sixth ''Ice And Fire'' novel, ''The Winds Of Winter''. Benioff & Weiss have been informed by Martin of the basic plot of how the saga will end, and Martin has said [[AuthorExistenceFailure that if he dies]] before completing his intended final two books (''Winter'' and ''A Dream Of Spring'') he will [[GeckoEnding let the TV show's ending stand as the conclusion of the saga]].
