Fans of Game of Thrones have created a petition to give the eighth season of Game of Thrones a do-over.

The petition, posted on, has received more than 33,000 signatures so far. The total was increasing by the minute on Wednesday evening, bringing it ever closer to its goal of 35,000 signatures.

“This series deserves a final season that makes sense,” reads the petition‘s description.

“Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, the final episode of which is due to air on Sunday, has left many fans disappointed despite impressive audience numbers.

The show’s most recent episode, The Bells, has proved particularly divisive, mainly due to Daenerys Targaryen’s storyline, which saw her burn down King’s Landing.

Game of Thrones previously caught flak after a modern-looking coffee cup was left by mistake in The Last of the Starks, the fourth episode in season eight.
