After seven seasons of word-of-mouth, American TV series Game of Power failed to escape the end of the fate.
Recently, fans around the world launched a petition campaign to ask HBO to remake the final season of the play (season 8). DylanD, a netizen who initiated the petition, said that two writers of the play, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, had obviously run out of talent and could not afford to shoot such a major series.
In just a few days, the post has received nearly 700,000 signatures, and the number is still increasing.
The Game of Rights, adapted from the novel Song of Ice and Fire by George R. Martin, was launched by Time Warners HBO. Since its broadcast in 2011, it has been loved by fans all over the world. HBO also announced its signing for the second season immediately after the first episode of the first season.
Since 2011, the series has maintained its annual seasonal update frequency, and live up to expectations has continuously exceeded the expectations of fans, once rated as the most popular and best-known American drama in recent years.
It is worth mentioning that according to CNBC, Game of Rights is adapted from George Martins novel, but because the novel has not been written, so the last four seasons are two writers based on the outline of the story.
However, this does not affect the popularity of the play. On the rotten tomatoes scoring website abroad, the popularity index of the play in the first seven seasons remained above 90%.
In April 2019, fans who had been waiting for two years finally arrived for the eighth season (final season), and their ratings soared, setting record ratings many times.
However, with the broadcast of the series, the final season has received more and more Tucao, especially the fourth episode and the fifth episode. The important role has been killed one after another, and the plot has also been leaping forward, which makes people feel confused. At present, the popularity index of the eighth season is only 70%.
Some netizens questioned, what happened in the eighth season? Fighting is never a strategy. Its a swarm of people rushing up and the character becomes ridiculous. Its an insult to the audiences intelligence quotient.
There are friends who have no choice but to Tucao, 7 years to create so many characters, but was destroyed once. Is this a childs home?
The British media, the Telegraph, also used the term total collapse directly in the title of the article to describe the plot of the eighth season.
Recently, the fans launched an online petition for HBO to remake the eighth season on the public service petition website Change.org. In his post, he said frankly that the two writers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, had exhausted their talents and could not afford to shoot such a major series and said they were unqualified writers.
At present, nearly 700,000 netizens have signed up for it. According to Theverge, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also successfully unlocked the hot search list by using the keyword badwriters.
However, HBO has not yet responded.
According to CNBC, after ending Game of Power, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will turn to direct the next Star Wars film, which will be aired in September this year in StarWars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Forbes has previously reported that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss intend to end Game of Power as soon as possible and switch to other shows.
