Game of Thrones fans petition for HBO to remake season 8 following controversial episode

Game of Thrones' latest episode hasn't exactly gone down well with many fans, so much so that there's already a petition to remake the whole season.

In case you missed it, 'The Bells' saw

However, it's not the first bad thing many have had to say about the final season, with the preceding few episodes criticised by some for wrapping storylines up too fast and some problematic elements too.

Now the inevitable has happened – a Change.org petition has called on HBO to re-do the entire season, and has nearly reached its target of 15,000 signatures at the time of writing.

"David Benioff and DB Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (ie the books) to fall back on," it says.

"This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

game of thrones: brotherhood is some mighty wishful thinking, i imagine whatever contract prevented D and D from being replace will also stop that

They won't remake season 8 specifically

but we will get a full metal alchemists style reboot eventually that starts from the beginning adapting the 1st book for the 1st season but this time with all the flash backs and wolfe dreams.

Wish it could happen (or better yet, film 2 full seasons, reusing as much footage and effects shots as possible), but it's hilarious that the petitioners actually think this is possible.

nnn I wasn’t expecting there to be 30K signatures already. The damage is done and the actors are moving on, this isn’t going to happen. We can just hope for the best with the books.

I'm already waiting for Game of Thrones: Brotherhood.

But not now, maybe in 10 years when the nostalgia is high and the books are finished. (hopefully lol)

Eventually there will be another Game of Thrones thing. I expect an animated series named A Song of Ice and Fire on some streaming platform in 10-15 years.

Ridiculous. Maybe they can be redone if GRRM ever finishes the series, but I really doubt HBO would put themselves out there further with a reshot final season that still won't live up to people's expectations.

give me a fucking break

Did anyone watch the making of shit?

No way this talent and crew does a do over. Even if you consider this season poorly written or rushed it was still an monumental creation

ACCEPT IT AND MOVE ON

I still don't get that Episode 5 triggered this. I though Episode 3 and 4 were bad and actually thought Episode 5 was Ok. Daenerys going mad was foreshadowed the whole series and yeah, it came pretty sudden, but it was heavily hinted at in the episode itself.

But then again, I also love TLJ, so.....

Would be weird to see Dany and the rest of the cast 20 years older.

Maybe 50 years from now when it's considered classic. It's too big and too expensive.
