Game of Thrones fan converts Season 8 into a 10-episode audio play with a better ending




Game of Thrones Season 8 wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The season finale divided the fan base into two. One was satisfied with the ending, the other demanded a season remake. Some blamed the absence of George R. R. Martin’s next installment of books. At the same time, some blamed the showrunners’ piqued interest in launching a Star Wars feature film trilogy with Disney’s Lucasfilm. There were also some really dedicated fans who came up with their own version of the final season.

What is the unofficial Game of Thrones audio play about?

A Game of Thrones fan who goes by the name of Call, reimagined the entire final season of the HBO epic into a 10-episode podcast, titled: Game of Thrones: Season 8 Redux. The fan fic writer, Call, came up with the idea of putting together an audio play by hiring voice actors for the different characters in the covid lockdown period of 2021.


In Call’s own words: “I chose to write an alternate Season 8 not from a place of negativity or an attitude of “I can do better than that”, but rather as a way of crafting my own sense of closure on a series I love, in a way that more closely aligned with my own understanding of the characters and their story arcs. To paraphrase a late cameo in GoT:S8R, this pod is not how I think the show should have ended, just “one of” the ways it could have ended.”

Where can you listen to Game of Thrones: Season 8 Redux?

All 10 episodes of the podcast play Game of Thrones: Season 8 Redux can be accessed using the link for free right here. The story is entirely a work of fanfiction. It is unofficial, unaffiliated, and unauthorised. Neither the podcast nor any individual involved in its production is now, nor has ever been, in any way associated with HBO, Game of Thrones, George RR Martin, or the Song of Ice and Fire book series.
