Almost Half a Million Disappointed Fans Sign Petition Demanding Remake of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

Almost Half a Million Disappointed Fans Sign Petition Demanding Remake of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

A petition demanding remake of the eighth and the final season of “Game of Thrones” with new writers has surpassed a quarter of a million signatures. The said petition is garnering more and more signatures from the fans of the HBO series every single minute.

Fan outrage turned colossal when the penultimate episode last Sunday, when Daenerys incinerated King’s Landing — along with children and other innocent people — with her dragon, showcasing her descent into madness.

The online petition was launched last Thursday on change.org, and gained traction on Wednesday when it went from 15,000 signatures to more than 2,50,000 in less than 24 hours.

Unlike previous seasons, the final series of “Game of Thrones” has not been based on George R. R. Martin’s novels, and instead has been written by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Season eight has faced negative reviews as episodes have aired, with many viewers criticizing the show’s creators for rushing toward its ending.

The petition reads as "…David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

Benioff and Weiss are set to direct a movie in the Star Wars franchise after “Game of Thrones” comes to an end.

A spokesperson for HBO was not immediately available for comment when contacted by LawStreet Journal.
