'Game of Thrones' Finale: Fans Are Creating Their Own Alternate Endings

HBO's popular Game of Thrones series may have come to an end, but that doesn't mean series creator and writer George R.R. Martin doesn't have more projects up his sleeve.

In our review of Game of Throne's series finale, which concluded a journey began all the way back in 2011, we said it was "a bittersweet if underwhelming climax to a show that's been a true cultural obsession". All previous series had an average of more than 90 per cent.

The numbers are expected to grow with delayed viewing. Both games didn't exactly release to critical acclaim, so if Martin's new project is indeed related to the popular fantasy series, here's hoping it'll actually live up to its prestigious legacy.

According to CNN, the finale - "The Iron Throne" - which brought all eight seasons of the hit show to a loud close, broke the record set by the very bloody penultimate episode The Bells, which drew 18.4 million viewers. The previous record was held for nearly 20 years by The Sopranos season 4 premiere on September 15, 2002, which saw 13.4 million people watching that episode at the same time.

In fact, some whiny fans have been so disgruntled with how showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been handling everything - particularly the arcs of their favourite characters - that they are demanding HBO remake the entire final season, a thing that HBO will definitely absolutely do, believe me.

Ultimately, no matter your stance on the final two seasons of Game of Thrones, it is impossible to deny that they were weaker because they were rushed.

Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark, said the petition was "disrespectful".
