There are 3 major(POV) characters the show has not even mentioned existing yet. They have story to spare.
Most of the story they skipped were parts which are more suited for the books
For example, Season 5 was a Feast for Crows and a Dance of Dragons combined.
They went through 2 books in one season, cause the books were full of tedious journeys, and other stuff more suited for books
Other stories wont make sense in a TV show, because you can't have many characters in a TV show, or else the audience will get confused, its not like their names are constantly there like in a book. So its beneficial for the Show to stay with 3-4 storylines, while the books have like 7-8, so that doesn't make sense
The only part they haven't really talked about is Euron Greyjoy's story, that's it
Everything else is caught up.
imo they should wrap up by Season 7
