Top 5 TV Shows Saved by Fandom

June 30, 2017

You wouldn't like a fandom scorned, especially if a show was cancelled on a cliff-hanger. here's my pick of five tv shows that were saved by fans.

5- Sense 8


   After concluding its second season at the beginning of June, fans of this diverse show were surprised to hear that it was cancelled by Netflix. Protesting the decision is an understatement, many fans took to social media to express their anger and frustration, it even got to trending worldwide on twitter. Netflix finally relented under pressure and promised fans a two-hour special to wrap things up. It’s expected to air in 2018.


4- Timeless


   After only airing one season, this Sony Pictures produced tv show was cancelled by NBC. The show might not have been long on air but it apparently left it’s marks so deep that NBC went back on their decision and renewed the series after an overwhelming fans protests on social media. The time travel drama does not have an air date for the second season, but it’s confirmed that it will be 10 episodes long.


3- Veronica Mars


    This show is undoubtedly the ultimate cult classic series definition. This darker than usual CW tv show aired for three seasons before it was cancelled leaving behind cliff hangers and a long list of questions that fans wanted the answers to.  The show’s creator Rob Thomas wrote a movie script but it was rejected by Warner Bros. Fans managed to fund raise over 5.7 million for the movie in a campaign started by Kristin Bell and Rob Thomas on Kickstarter.

2- Firefly


   This show didn’t even make it to 13 episodes on Fox, due to lack of promotion and messy air time. However, what it did managed to do is create a loyal following. All fans could do at this point is to write fox and request for the DVD to be released, and when it did the high numbers of sales caused Universal Pictures to offer Joss Whedon a movie to give firefly a proper ending, which also ended up scoring high in DVD sales.

1- Star Trek


   Star Trek aired for three seasons on NBC, but before the third was released there were rumors surfacing of it being cancelled, fans quickly took to writing huge number of letters to NBC and even holding protests at schools. NBC later denied those rumors and renewed it for a third season with the message “And now an announcement of interest to all viewers of Star Trek. We are pleased to tell you that Star Trek will continue to be seen on NBC Television. We know you will be looking forward to seeing the weekly adventure in space on Star Trek.”
