20 Times Fans Actually Saved TV Shows From Cancellation
After just two seasons, Netflix axed the show because its audience wasn’t big enough to support the cost of production. Still, determined fans started online petitions and social media hashtags to help save it. After about a month of fan protests, Netflix agreed to treat fans to a special finale that would offer them a bit more closure.
The show’s creator, Lana Wachowski, said: “The passionate letters, the petitions, the collective voice that rose up like the fist of Sun to fight for this show was beyond what anyone was expecting…Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought Sense8 back to life.”
