When the final season of Game of Thrones aired last year, it received a very mixed response from fans.
Despite the concluding instalment of the series being highly anticipated, some fans felt it was a let down. Many argued there were a number of loose ends that weren't tied up, while others had issues with character development and felt the storylines were rushed.
In fact, viewers were so passionate about the final season, that they started a petition to remake it - and it racked up over a million signatures and counting.
Now, Game of Thrones star Charles Dance (who played Tywin Lannister) has actually weighed in on the issue himself, explaining that although he hadn't heard about the petition, he would support a call to remake the final instalment.
"Well if there was a petition, I would sign it. I mean, I saw it. I continue to watch the whole series even after I'd been killed off in the lavatory," he told PopCulture.com.
"Because I just thought it's a fantastic television show, you know? I was very lucky to be part of it. I loved it; there were storylines [where] I wanted to know what was going to happen to these people.
"I know that the finale satisfied a lot of people. It also disappointed a lot of people, and I'm afraid I am in the latter camp."
Charles, 73, did praise show-runners and writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, however, calling them "phenomenal" - but he wasn't impressed by the series' ending and explained it left him "underwhelmed".
The petition - titled 'Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers' currently has over 1.8 million signatures, with a target of three million.
"This series deserves a final season that makes sense," it explains. "Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"
It's unlikely HBO will remake the season, however, with HBO's President of Programming Casey Bloys explaining to Entertainment Weekly: "The petition shows a lot of enthusiasm and passion for the show, but it wasn't something we seriously considered. I can't imagine another network would."
