FANS of Game of Thrones are demanding that the latest and final season is remade and now almost 300,000 people have signed an online petition calling for this to happen. With one episode left to go of the cult show, a fan named Dylan D has started a petition on Change.org asking HBO to remake the entirety of season 8 with new writers.

The petition is called “Remake Game of Thrones season 8 with competent writers” and has reached hundreds of thousands of signatures in a short space of time.
Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been heavily criticised recently because fans aren’t happy with what is happening to their favourite characters.
The petition states: “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!”
Fans think the Queen of Dragons turned into a villain too quickly[/caption]
Dylan D has not specified what particular aspects of the plot made him so angry that he had to start this petition.
However, many fans are very upset with what has happened to Daenerys Targaryen who is played by actress Emilia Clarke.
Daenerys has been famed throughout the entire series for being a fair and powerful queen and “breaker of chains” but fans think the recent plot has hastily turned her into a villain.
Executing Lord Varys with her dragon and killing thousands of innocent men, women and children has been lambasted as completely out of character for the Queen of Dragons and fans think the writers are just rushing the plot.
Another fan, who goes by the name Wolfman Monsterman, has started a different petition urging fans to stop trying to force films and TV shows to meet their “demands”.
Euron Greyjoy actor Pilou Asbæk recently told The Wrap that it was impossible to satisfy all fans when he said: “You cannot satisfy one billion people, it’s not possible. But you want to have them commit to the show, even if they don’t like it.”
Over 18.4million viewers watched the latest episode on HBO on Sunday.
A lot of fans think the series has reduced in quality ever since it over took the time frame of the books as George RR Martin couldn’t write the sixth and seventh instalments quick enough.
However, the author is apparently set to release the books once the show has finished so fans might get a bit more of an in depth plot and the explanations they are craving.
It may seem like wishful thinking to get a whole series remade but recent negative reaction to the Sonic the Hedgehog trailer promoted the director to go back to the drawing board and start again.
