Petition demanding Game of Thrones season eight redo closes in on 1M signatures

Some followers aren’t proud of what’s taking place to their favourite characters within the remaining season of Game of Thrones.


Game of Thrones is sort of completed for good, and a few followers have been vocal of their dissatisfaction about how the story is unfolding. 

Some are so sad, the truth is, it appears they need to persuade HBO to remake the complete season eight by changing Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with new writers on the helm.

A fan named Dylan D. in Forth Worth, Texas began a petition earlier this week asking HBO to redo the complete season. The petition, titled “Remake Game of Thrones season 8 with competent writers,” amassed extra than 900,000 signatures as of Friday afternoon.

“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,” Dylan D. posted. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!” 

While the petition itself would not element particular plot grievances, many followers had been notably upset when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)  executed Lord Varys by Drogon’s fireplace, then proceeded to storm King’s Landing and kill males, girls and kids even after the bells of give up sounded. 

Many followers thought Daenerys’ brutal actions appeared fully out of character.

The petition has impressed help, criticism and a few jokes. “So far we have over 20,000 signatures on our petition to never remake Doc Hollywood,” one Twitter consumer wrote Friday.

Another fan, who goes by the title Wolfman Monsterman, began a separate petition this week urging followers to cease signing petitions forcing TV reveals and films to “meet your demands.”

“It’s time to take a stand against those taking a stand against witnessing narratives unfold in ways we didn’t expect and pledge to never sign a petition demanding those fat cats in Hollywood adhere to our stupid, stupid ideas,” states the petition, which has slightly over 1,900 signatures as of Friday afternoon. 

On Friday, Dylan, who began the petition calling for brand spanking new Game of Thrones writers, posted an replace sharing his ardour for the present and additional explaining why he began the petition. 

“I didn’t make this petition to be an entitled, whiny fan,” he wrote. “I made it because I was immensely disappointed and needed to vent. Do I have a solution? I’ve got plenty of ideas, but no, I’m not a Hollywood writer. But you don’t need to be a mechanic to know your car is broken.”

HBO didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.

Game of Thrones might need disgruntled followers this season, however that hasn’t stopped them from tuning in each Sunday to see if their favourite character survives one other day. Sunday’s episode, The Bells, attracted 18.four million viewers who watched on HBO, HBO Go and HBO Now, HBO introduced Tuesday.
