Nevertheless, HBO does not seem to be disheartened by the reaction.
"There are very few drawbacks to a hugely popular show, and I imagine that many people have great opinions on how to end them and how to get past the stories of characters," said HBO program director Casey Bloys Journalists during a press conference on the summer spraying day of the Television Critics Association on Wednesday.
He said that despite online petitions, HBO has no plans to turn the finale again, and frankly, he could "do it." I can not imagine that another network would do that. "
Bloys also denied that executives at the network had intervened with extensive notes to authors David Benioff and DB in the series Weiss.
" When a show is the sixth, seventh season of a hugely successful run so far, there's usually a rhythm with the showrunners and the network … so no back and forth, "said Bloys.
In response to whether the review changed HBO's approach to the planned predecessor piece of the medieval fantasy series Bloys said, "It does not have that at all." Created by Jane Goldman.
