People are demanding HBO remake the final season of Game of Thrones

The final season of Game of Thrones has been an emotional rollercoaster. After each new episode, a new controversy or outcry has echoed out across the internet.

After the penultimate episode aired on May 12th, I guess some fans decided they have had enough with the choices David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have made regarding character choices and plot points.

One fan, simply referred to as ‘Dylan D’ has started a change.org petition to show their displeasure with D&D (the nickname given to Benioff and Weiss.) In the description of the petition, Dylan says:

https://www.change.org/p/hbo-remake-game-of-thrones-season-8-with-competent-writers 

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!

As of the writing of this article, the peition has 59,000 signatures and is amassing more every few seconds. 'Dylan D' has said what exactly is going to happen after the petition reaches it's goal of 75,000 signatures.

Here are some reactions to the news of this petition:

 

Right now, neither D&D or HBO has acknowleged the petition but it seems highly unlikely that a remake would happen. Speculation is that the final season cost close to $15M to make, so they probably wouldn't want to spend that again.

The series finale of Game of Thrones airs on HBO this Sunday, May 19th.
