Netflix Fan Campaigns In 2024

Over the years, fans of shows that have been canceled early have campaigned hard for their shows to get revived or renewed for additional seasons either at Netflix itself or elsewhere. That continues in 2024, with these eight shows currently getting the most attention online for revival hopes. 

Netflix cancelations have been a fact of life for years now, and despite them easily having over 150 shows with new seasons on the way at any given time, lots do face early terminations.

Fan campaigns have been prominent for years now, with fans using tools at their disposal, whether that be social media, petitions, or even putting their spare cash to use by buying billboards or planes.

In no particular order, let’s begin:


Shadow and Bone

One of the most high-profile cancelations of 2023 was undoubtedly Shadow and Bone, which was announced following the dual-Hollywood strikes that it would not be returning for a third season. Of course, it was actually two cancelations, given that the long-rumored spin-off series The Crows was also announced to no longer be moving forward.

At the time of publishing, the revival campaign for Shadow and Bone is certainly the loudest on social media, with most of Netflix’s posts flooded with replies from the campaign.


Warrior Nun

Arguably, Warrior Nun shouldn’t be on this list because, as you may have heard, the show did get revived for a trilogy of movies. If you dig into the details, though, not all is as it seems, with those movies being completely separate from Netflix’s iteration of the show, ultimately leading to the disappointment of most who campaigned for the show to get revived.

Campaigning for the series to be revived certainly peaked throughout 2022 and 2023, with some of the noisiest campaigning we’ve ever seen for a Netflix revival, and has certainly died down since the announcement of the revivals. That said, you can still find a large contingent online with the hashtag #SaveOURWarriorNun.


The OA

The Oa Canceled At Netflix

The oldest show on this list with still a very active fanbase is The OA, which was unceremoniously canceled following its second season addition to the service in 2019.

Fans of the show continue to discuss theories and their love for the two seasons that they did get and while most of the commentary isn’t about saving the show, it’s amazing to see how far and wide this fanbase is and how passionate they still are about the show now five years on.

While a Netflix revival is likely at 0%, the good news is that Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij did go on to find a home at another streamer with their recent Hulu series, A Murder at the End of the World.


Anne with an E

Another show we’re consistently tagged about and can see there’s still a very active fanbase for is Anne with an E, which ran for three seasons on Netflix and CBC before its cancelation. Picking up well over a million signatures on petition sites, the show is a favorite, and while a revival looks almost impossible given the length of time that has now passed, it’s still endearing to see the show with such an active fanbase.


Fate: The Winx Saga

If you can quite believe it, Fate: The Winx Saga was canceled coming up on two years ago now. The fantasy YA series was untimely canceled following its second season dropping in September 2022. Despite this time that’s past, however, fans are still looking for a revival and are still spreading the word on social media and other platforms, with hundreds of thousands of people having signed petitions.


Lockwood & Co

One of the first major cancelations of 2023 for Netflix was Lockwood & Co, Netflix’s big new supernatural detective series originating out of the United Kingdom with Ruby Stokes, Cameron Chapman, and Ali Hadji-Heshmati leading the cast.

Sadly, the show was cut short after only eight episodes, following a relatively disappointing performance regarding viewership. Fans are still very active in getting the word out on saving this show on social media.

The good news is that Joe Cornish is/was developing a brand new movie for Netflix, but that’s all we can say now.


Inside Job

The only animated title on this list that’s got a small but dedicated fanbase still campaigning for revival is Inside Job, the show that came from Shion Takeuchi and executive producer Alex Hirsch.

After its initial order of 18 episodes aired, it was announced that the show wouldn’t return for any more seasons.

Barring a few exceptions like F is for Family, Bojack Horseman, and Big Mouth, Netflix has really struggled in getting its animated adult series to stick, and despite universal acclaim, Inside Job wasn’t able to join them.


Mindhunter

Finally, we end with a show that’s near and dear to my heart and one I can count myself among the legion of fans online with Mindhunter. While never officially announced to be canceled, David Fincher has been on the record numerous times saying that the show is indefinitely on hiatus, with the show’s budget being a key concern for any future edition.

The good news is that David Fincher continues to work with Netflix on new projects, including the recently released movie The Killer. The famed director is also reportedly working on a Squid Game adaptation.

As one of the best shows in the Netflix library, we hold out hope that something can come to fruition in the near future, and given interviews with cast and crew over the past few years, they’re certainly still game.


These are just the Netflix Originals that people hope Netflix reconsiders and revives, but of course, there are also many shows from networks people are campaigning for Netflix to save, such as Our Flag Means Death. We may cover these further down the road.

Which show from the list above do you wish Netflix would reconsider and give another season to? Let us know in the comments down below.
