‘Game of Thrones’ Star Slams The Season 8 Remake Petition

Earlier this week Game of Thrones fans created a petition to remake season 8 and star Jacob Anderson, who plays Greyworm, is firing back.

Anderson sat down with Good Morning America when talking about the final episode of Game of Thrones. When addressing the season eight remake petition, Jacob Anderson told GMA that while Game of Thrones is dear to hearts, season eight doesn’t belong to the fans. He went on to explain:

“I just mean that in the sense that I was there, and the crew, in particular, on our show are like the hardest-working group of people I’ve ever met or ever had the pleasure to work with. And I think to kind of trivialize their work in that way, I find it kind of sad. Less so for us because we just get to fight people and look cool.

Game of Thrones‘ final season has been under fire. The last episode titled “The Bells” received a 47% score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is the lowest Game of Thrones rating ever. The petition to remake the entire eighth season began after this episode and already reached over one million signatures. The petition called David Benioff and D.B. Weiss “woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on.”

You can check out the full interview below.

What did you think of the episode “The Bells?” Do you think it deserved the backlash it got? What about the petition, is it getting ridiculous? Let us know down in the comments!

David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill have written the final six episodes which have been directed by David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik, with Benioff and Weiss helming the series finale. Benioff and Weiss returned to executive produce the final season alongside Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield, with Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin serving as co-executive producers.

George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” depicts two powerful families — kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men — all playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and to sit atop the Iron Throne. Winter is coming.

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Liam Cunningham as Ser Davos Seaworth, Carice van Houten as Melisandre, Rory McCann as Sandor “The Hound” Clegane, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Conleth Hill as Varys, Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy, John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth, Kristofer Hivju as Tormund Giantsbane, Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark, Jerome Flynn as Bronn, Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont, Hannah Murray as Gilly.
