Disappointed viewers are not happy with the fate of their beloved characters

Fans of Game of Thrones are not happy with the season eight and they have signed a petition to redo the season, reports BBC.

The petition, calling on the series maker, HBO, more than 500,000 dissatisfied fans signed the petition. The latest series of the popular TV show has been facing criticism by the fans online.

Disappointed viewers are not happy with the fate of their beloved characters.

The petition was launched on Change.org petition, after this week's penultimate episode was aired.

The petition demand that show's writers, David Benioff and DB Weiss, "have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent."

The writers, the petition charges, have "no source material to fall back on," alluding to the unfinished books season eight is loosely based on.

"This series deserves a final season that makes sense," the petition reads. "Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

The angry fans claimed that final series "seems rushed," "totally disrespected the author," and threw eight years of character development "down the drain."

Given the reported cost of each episode - an estimated $15m (£11.7m) - HBO is unlikely to cave in to the petition's demands.
