It's no secret that Game of Thrones the TV show has been rapidly catching up to its source material.
The first book in George R.R. Martin's fantasy series was published way back in 1996, and to this day, he's only released five of the seven planned volumes.
Compared to HBO's fantasy series that is about to start its fifth season since premiering in 2011, it's safe to say that the televised version of the story is moving along at a much faster pace.
So, it didn't come as quite a surprise when GoT's show runners Dan Weiss and David Benioff announced over the weekend that the show would officially begin to spoil the books.
However, you may take some solace in the fact that nothing is going to ruin the sixth book until at least this time next year.
April 12's fifth season premiere is going to document the details from books four and five, which would put both installments at the same place.

Unfortunately, this means that unless George finishes The Winds of Winter by next Spring, you're going to be watching your favorite characters die without any way of knowing beforehand.
While it stinks that this could potentially render the books anti-climactic, we're hearing that the TV show is still going to make some of its own original creative decisions.
