I think most people will be shocked if he meets that date. He certainly does not seem very driven to bring this series to a resolution.
I liked the series until the last book, which I hated, and now I'm convinced that he will never finish it. If book 5 ever comes out, I may pick it up but I've moved on to other authors at this point.
To your original point, I am looking forward to the TV series.
