In utter despondency, Dylan wrote, “There is so much awful crap going on in the world, people like me need to escape into things like Star Wars and Game of Thrones.” He further stated, “We fans invested a wealth of passion and time into this series”.

The discreditable Season 8
The eighth season is the final season of the acclaimed television series. Released on April 14, 2019, and ended on May 19, 2019. Contrary to the initial six seasons, which has ten episodes, and the 7th season, which has 7 episodes, the 8th season had 6 episodes only.
The last season represents the conclusion of the series. It depicts two main battles: the war against the “Army of the Dead (Battle of Winterfell)”, and the Ultimate war (Battle Of King’s Landing) for the command of the Iron Throne. The first part of the Game of Thrones season 8 finale includes several of the central roles gathering at Winterfell with their troops in an attempt to withstand the advancing White Walkers. The second part of the Game of Thrones season 8 finale continues the battle for the Iron Throne as Daenerys Targaryen attacks King’s Landing in an effort to expel Cersei Lannister as the Queen of Westeros.
Game of Thrones season 8 finale was recorded from 2017 to 2018 and mostly composed of fundamental work not observed in George RR Martin’s book “A Song of Ice and Fire”. The season recorded an immense decline in reviewing and watching line; basically, they did not make it like previous seasons, and the show was RUSHED.
Petition to re-record Season 8
Currently, the petition has millions of signatories. The petitioner, Dylan, after knowing the popularity of petition showcased surprise. Dylan stated, “I don’t think people can reasonably expect HBO to completely remake the season”. This means, despite the petition, Dylan himself does not believe in what he is aiming for is feasible.
How cum David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are going to remake season 8 just because of some online petition? In reality, it is not an achievable task to remake the whole season. The fans of Game of Thrones need to comply with it as they do not have any other option.
