By CCN: As HBO subscribers heaved a collective sigh of disappointment following the latest episode in Game of Thrones’ final season trainwreck, it became clear what diehard fans have suspected since the end of season 6 – the writers have run out of ideas.
Season 8 is so awful that more than 600,000 diehard fans (and counting) signed a Change.org petition demanding that HBO remake the entirety of S8.
But how much would that cost?

Why HBO Needs to Remake Game of Thrones Season 8
First, let’s revisit what went wrong.
Instead of writing a final season that befits the rich characters we’ve come to know and love in the past seven seasons of HBO’s hit show, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have Game of Thrones careening towards a car crash of a finale that lead actor Kit Harrington freely admitted was disappointing, and that star members of the cast seem pretty down about, as the three-minute video below demonstrates.
It’s alright Kit, we don’t blame you; in fact, we’re on your side. It’s the writers that need to be sent to the wall.
So on the off chance that HBO sees the petition to remake season 8 and actually listens, how much would it cost to bring back the excitement, intricate characters, and plot we’ve come to know and love?
