Game of Thrones Season 8 Remake Demanded by Fans After HBO Tease

Game of Thrones dominated pop culture for a decade but now is little more than a bad memory to legions of fans around the world who reject the show's terrible ending.

Twitter was thrown into disarray on Thursday after the official Game of Thrones account tweeted the HBO drama's most famous slogan: "Winter is Coming."

What is this? A clue, a hint? Is HBO trying to tell us that the show is returning or one of the spin-offs is imminent?

Whatever the intention, the cryptic tweet has seen fans demand season eight be remade with the show trending on social media for the first time in a long time.

Winter is coming.

Many referred to the recently released Zack Snyder's Justice League which was released after a long-running fan campaign.

"They gave Zack Snyder 70 something million bucks to 'fix' Justice League," tweeted author John Horner. "Fix season 8. You could probably do it in three episodes."

Meanwhile, Astead Weasley from The New York Times wrote in a viral tweet: "if HBO wants me to watch a Game Of Thrones spin-off I want a personal apology for season 8. 12 pt font, double spaced, no funny business on the margins."

Another tweet read: "If Justice League can remake their movie 4 years later, why cant you remake Season 8?"

Game of Thrones ended in May 2019 with what is widely considered to be a terrible ending that was unbecoming of the series and the characters.

A prequel spin-off series titled House of the Dragon is expected to arrive in 2022.

Three other spin-offs are reportedly in the works too. Per Variety, one is rumored to be called either 9 Voyages or Sea Snake, while the other two will possibly be titled Flea Bottom and 10,000 Ships.
