Lena Headey Has Some Things To Say About Cersei’s End

Winter has finally come for Game of Thrones - and its last series is getting a chilly reception.

As of 7 pm CEST on Thursday, more than 476,000 people have signed a Change.org petition calling on HBO - the United States television network which produces and airs the show - to rewrite and re-shoot the final season.

Based on a script written by Thrones author George R.R. Martin and co-writer Jane Goldman, the untitled prequel series has the following logline: "It chronicles the world's descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour".

"This series deserves a final season that makes sense", the petition, launched on May 9, demands.

Much of the fan anger is centred on what they feel is a rush to wrap up complicated storylines as the shows writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss write their own conclusion to the fantasy epic.

The rest of this story contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode five, "The Bells".

Fans have a basis to these feelings that they can get their way.

He also previously admitted there was a character he was surprised to see alive in episode six - and the fan wondered if there was any other character who would be as surprising to see alive. "Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!". Now that she's a murderer of countless innocent people, more than 350,000 viewers don't have faith in the show to adequately address the story in one more episode. A new petition has taken that backlash to another level.

Now, why would Entertainment Weekly release interview with stars such as Headey, Christie, and McCann's following their character's ultimate demise, but not Coster-Waldau?

That exceeded the previous series high of 17.8 million viewers two weeks ago for "The Long Night" episode which focused on the Battle of Winterfell.

The ending, as Mr Benioff and Mr Weiss have admitted themselves, was always likely to be contentious.

This petition could get 10 million votes and HBO still wouldn't reshoot it - the logistics aren't feasible - but if you're also less-than-satisfied with the season, at least know you're not alone. "Of course we worry".

The BBC has contacted HBO for comment.
