20 Times Fans Actually Saved TV Shows From Cancellation
Star Trek: The Original Series
The cult classic was canceled after only two seasons, but fans weren’t ready to accept that it was already over. Sci-fi writer Betty JoAnne and her husband came up with a fan campaign and got over 100,000 fans to send letters to the network. Plus, people actually protested right outside of NBC’s offices so their voices would be heard. On the bright side, it worked and viewers were rewarded with another season, but after that concluded, the show was canceled again. When fans tried to convince the network to bring it back a second time, they had no such luck.
