Petition for new writers to remake GoT final season reaches more than 350k signatures

The petition called “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers” states that “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 was launched by ‘Dylan D’ last Thursday but gained serious momentum following the airing of Sunday night’s fifth and penultimate episode of the series, with more than 300,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.

The hugely popular show’s latest installment, ‘The Bells’, is the now the worst-reviewed episode in its history, as frustrated fans despair at the route the show has taken for its final farewell, particularly the downfall of character Daenerys Targaryen.

Unlike the previous seasons, the final one has surpassed George R.R. Martin’s novels, which served as the show’s source material up to that point, and has instead been written by Benioff and Weiss. However, the pair were reportedly given a broad outline of Martin’s plans for the characters, including how the author intended on finishing out the series on paper.
