Game Of Thrones: Over 200,000 angry fans sign Change.org petition to have HBO REMAKE Season 8 in its entirety
Quote
After Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones left several fans upset with the direction of the show, leading into the May 19 series finale, some have decided to take action, of sorts.

A fan named Dylan D has started a Change.org petition, charging HBO to, 'remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers.'

Dylan D is not alone either, with over 238,000 fans signing this petition over the past few days.

Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers.
Quote
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!

HBO finally responds to Game of Thrones season 8 reshoot petition
Quote
HBO has finally responded to a Game of Thrones fan petition which called for creators DB Weiss and Dan Benioff to remake the final season of the fantasy drama, and received over a million signatures.

The petition, signed by 1.3 million people, criticised the writers Weiss and Benioff and referred to them as “woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material.” The show went beyond the published events of George RR Martin’s books at the beginning of season five.

“This series deserves a final season that makes sense,” the petition stated.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, HBO president Casey Bloys said that reshoots were “not something we seriously considered”.

“There are very, very few downsides to having a hugely popular show. But one I can think of is when you try to end it, many people have big opinions on how these characters’ stories should come to an end.”

“Thirty-two Emmy nominations is certainly nice validation,” he added, referring to the Emmy Awards 2019 nominations.



Various cast members have previously weighed in on the petition, including Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), who branded it “disrespectful”.

“People always have an idea in their heads of how they want a show to finish, and so when it doesn’t go to their liking, they start to speak up about it and rebel,” Turner said an interview with The New York Times.
