In an interview with Deadline, HBO programming president Casey Bloys responses to fan backlash after the much-debated ending of Game of Thrones season 8.
In a nutshell, he says the backlash from fans needs to be taken with a “grain of salt” During the interview, Bloys was asked if he was surprised by the fan reactions to the series finale in which he responded:
Game of Thrones season 8 has come under fire for its “bad writing” and even the petition to remake the season skyrocketed to 1.5 million signatures after the series finale premiered.
The show’s fans are passionate people so the backlash would have happened whether or not it ended in the way it did. HBO has possible prequels planned for it and no chance of a remake.
