Over 200K Game of Thrones Fans Sign Petition Calling for Final Season Redo by 'Competent Writers'


WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the latest episode of Game of Thrones. The realm is divided. Thousands of Game of Thrones fans are voicing their discontent with the eighth and final season of the wildly popular, award-winning HBO drama — and are calling out the show’s writing staff in the process. A Change.org petition has surfaced, urging the premium cable network to “remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers.” And as of Wednesday evening, the petition officially met its 200,000 signature goal after being created just last week. “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,” the petition’s creator said on the site, referring to the drama’s showrunners. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!” After Sunday’s penultimate episode, titled “The Bells,” fan reactions were divided after Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) let her fiery fury rain down on King’s Landing — even after the city surrendered.

Fans were disgruntled by the apparent darkness of episode 3, “The Long Night,” and much has been written about the show’s newfound fast pace. On Wednesday, HBO released two photos from the final episode. One shows Daenerys addressing her army after their conquest, and the other reveals Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) looking rather forlorn.

HBO is releasing a documentary following the making of the eighth season, titled The Last Watch, set to air one week after the finale on May 26. The doc “delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland,” HBO said. “Much more than a ‘making of’ documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.” Game of Thrones‘ series finale airs Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m. (People.com Latest News) More More
