Game of Thrones fans sign petition to remake Season 8 with 'competent writers'
Ever since the screening of the third episode, Long Night, Game of Thrones (GOT) fans have been talking about their dissatisfaction. It only increased after episode 5, Bells, where Daenerys Tagyarian is seen burning down King’s Landing.
Many of the fans have signed a petition on Change.org urging HBO to remake the final season. The petition asks HBO to hire “competent writers” as David Benioff and DB Weiss have proven to be “woefully incompetent”.
The petition read: “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!”
GOT is based on A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series by George RR Martin. The last book in the series, A Dance with Dragons released in 2011, the year the show began to air on HBO.
The show eventually moved away from the books from season 6. Since then, many have noticed the drop in quality of the writing in the show and the ratings too. Season 7 of the show had 7 episodes instead of the show’s usual 10. The final ongoing season has only 6 episodes, the last one will air at 6.30 am on May 20.
