The Winds of Winter will surely have a different story compared to the Game of Thrones TV series and things will be presented in more detail. While it is not clear, when will George RR Martin finish the book, the author has given several hints on the storyline. Martin says that TWOW will cover a large part of the story and introduce many new characters that are not present in the GOT show.
Along with that, each character will get proper development and things won’t be rushed for sure. Brandon Stark aka Bran the Broken is made the King of Westeros in the end but he barely does anything in the show. It hints that The Winds of Winter will have a bigger backstory for Bran and show much more about his three-eyed raven powers.
The Winds of Winter Spoilers for Bran’s Backstory
The Winds of Winter spoilers hints that Bran will get many chapters from his POV and explain in detail about his powers. Bran was marked by the Night King and the 3-eyed raven transferred himself into his body, it is still kind of confusing in the show. George RR Martin has made Brandon Stark a very special character in the story and The Winds of Winter will surely expand on that.
lol i still canNOT believe it was bran stark in the end

We know that Bran the Broken could travel to the past or future and see things from miles away, it could have huge implications for the show. Further, Bran was very cold to everyone and it seems that he has forgotten who he was, it might play a huge factor in the Winds of Winter storyline. It might be possible that we get to see more on Bran the Builder, the three-eyed raven and a proper backstory that explains why Bran is made the King of Westeros.

Fans have no option but to wait and until GRRM actually comes out with a copy of The Winds of Winter in his hands, we can’t believe any of the release dates for the book.
