The Reading / Listening - Game of Thrones - Level 0

People who watch Game of Thrones don't like the final season. A million people signed a petition to get it remade. They want "a final season that makes sense". The man who started the petition liked the first seven seasons because they followed the books. He said the writers of the eighth season had no talent.



Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama. It is from the book "A Song of Ice and Fire". The show is very popular. It won 47 Emmy Awards - the most ever by a drama series. Many people signed the petition but over 12 million people watch each show. For every person who dislikes the show, there are many more who love it.
