It has been almost three years since Game of Thrones concluded with a controversial final season. It has also been almost three years since fans launched a petition begging for new writers to be brought in to work on a remake of the show's Season 8. Interestingly, there haven't been any updates on whether HBO is listening to the fans but the petition is still gaining more supporters. As of writing, the petition is close to reaching 2 million signatures!

Game of Thrones Season 8 ended in May 2019 and the conclusion was nothing short of shocking for fans. This led to people launching a petition claiming that executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss didn't give the show the justice it deserved and calling on HBO to bring in "competent writers" to make a better version of the final season.

According to the petition, Benioff and Weiss had proven that they were incapable of delivering a proper storyline when they didn't have the source material to rely on. This was because the series moved much faster than George R.R. Martin, who is still working on the sixth book of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Some people may have moved on since the series concluded but others are refusing to back down and believe that the petition will help them get the final season they deserve. The petition currently has 1,851,021 signatures and could soon reach 2 million supporters. We'll keep checking on this story so stay tuned for more updates.

For now, HBO has not confirmed whether there will be a remake of Game of Thrones Season 8. However, the franchise is clearly moving forward with a prequel series House of the Dragon. The new show has not yet been given an official release date but is set to premiere later this year.
