Game of Thrones fans start petition demanding HBO remake season 8

In a Change.org petition, fired-up fans say they want showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss replaced with "competent" writers for a redo.


Some fans aren't happy with what's happening to their favorite characters in the final season of Game of Thrones.


Game of Thrones is almost finished for good, and some fans have been voicing their dissatisfaction with how the story is unfolding. 


Some are so unhappy, in fact, it seems they want to convince HBO to remake the entire season 8 by replacing Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with new writers at the helm.


"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 doesn't detail specific plot grievances, many fans were notably upset when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)  executed Lord Varys by Drogon's fire, then proceeded to storm King's Landing and kill men, women and children even after the bells of surrender sounded. 


Many fans thought Daenerys' brutal actions seemed entirely out of character.




But on the flip side, another fan, who goes by the name Wolfman Monsterman, started a different Change.org petition urging fans to stop signing petitions forcing TV shows and movies 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," the petition states. 


HBO did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Game of Thrones might have disgruntled fans this season, but that hasn't stopped them from tuning in every Sunday to see if their favorite character survives another day. Sunday's episode, The Bells, attracted 18.4 million viewers who watched on HBO, HBO Go and HBO Now, HBO announced Tuesday.  

This season's Battle of Winterfell episode, meanwhile, earned the honor of being the most tweeted episode in TV history


Actor Pilou Asbæk, who plays Euron Greyjoy, believes that being in a popular series means dealing with a passionate fan base. 

"The diversity of the fans and the passion they bring to the table is admirable, and you want to have all of it," Asbæk told The Wrapon May 13. "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."
