George R.R. Martin recently spoke wit Variety, and stated that he thinks Game of Thrones could have run up to 13 seasons…

On Thinking Game of Thrones Could Go On Longer: “We could’ve gone 11, 12, 13 seasons. [Showrunners] David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been saying for like five seasons that seven seasons is all they would go. We got them to go to eight but not any more than that. There was a period like five years ago when they were saying seven seasons and I was saying 10 seasons and they won, they’re the ones actually working on it.”

On the Actors Wanting To Move On: “I know all of the actors, as great as they are, all the actors are anxious to get on and play other roles. They don’t want to spend their entire lives playing one role and that’s fine, that’s great, we had such an amazing cast.
