HBO chief: Sorry, fans, no 'Game of Thrones' do-over
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - The clamor from "Game of Thrones" fans for a do-over of the drama's final season has been in vain. There are few downsides to having a hugely popular show like "Game of Thrones," Bloys said, but one is that fans have strong opinions on what would be a satisfying conclusion. Emmy voters proved unswayed by petitioners demanding a remake: They gave "Game of Thrones" a record-breaking 32 nominations earlier this month. HBO will want to keep the fan fervor alive for the prequel to "Game of Thrones" that's in the works. Asked whether negative reaction to the "Game of Thrones" conclusion will shape the prequel, Bloys replied, "Not at all."
HBO exec responds to 'Game of Thrones' blowback
(CNN) - The final season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" was a ratings juggernaut that helped the network receive a record-setting number of Emmy nominations.

He said that, despite online petitions suggesting so, HBO has no plans to re-shoot the finale and, frankly he "can't imagine any other network would" either. Bloys also denied that network executives had meddled with the series through copious notes to creators David Benioff and D.B. In response to whether the criticism has changed how HBO will approach its planned prequel to the medieval-style fantasy series, Bloys said, "It has not at all."
