Over 2 lakh fans of Game of Thrones across the world signed an online petition urging HBO to remake the eighth and final season of the epic fantasy series with “competent writers”.

The petitioner, Dylan D, started the appeal to HBO on Charge.org after the premiere of the last and final episode of the entire show, The Bells turned out to upset fans.

Showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have been under fire for below par script writing and poor portrayal of women in the final season of the HBO series, based on author George RR Martin’s book series A Song of Ice and Fire.

The petition, titled “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers”, says the showrunners displayed incompetence in the absence of “source material”.

“David Benioff and DB Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (ie the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!” the statement read.

Over 227,000 signed the petition at the time this report was filed.

The season finale of Game of Thrones premieres next week.
