An online petition asking HBO to remake the final season of Game of Throneshas reached over ten thousand signatures following 'The Bells' episode of season eight.
Signatories of the Change.org petition, entitled ‘Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers‘, claim showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have steered too far from George R. R. Martin‘s original work, and have not given the characters the appropriate treatment they deserve.
While the series was based on Martin's works, Benioff and Weiss were left to create their own ending when the series surpassed the books. For quite some time, the showrunners have had to formulate the show's remaining plot points based on Martin's pointers rather than through fleshed-out novels.
