Netflix is undoubtedly for the people. It does what many networks don’t do, listen. Because of this trait, Netflix has been the saviour of television series that’ve seen the axe over the years and give them a new lease of life. It’s happened a few times before with Arrested Development and Longmire being the standouts from this revival campaign. This means that when a show faces the chop people turn to Netflix to revive their show for a second, third or fourth season that their show desperately needs.
This list isn’t formulated by our opinion but the opinions of the thousands of fans of these shows who have taken to Change.org to request their show get a revival specifically to Netflix. They’re ranked with the amount of supporters they have.
10. My Name is Earl
Total Supporters : 1,592
When the series finished in 2009 fans were distraught with the cliffhanger that was left with us from My Name Is Earl. The show ran for four years on NBC before getting the chop and even after the long period of nothing from the show, fans still are pushing for a definitive final season for the show. As with Longmire most fans of My Name is Earl are only looking for a better ending than the one they were left with.

This isn’t a campaign to revive the original 80’s Dallas but the reboot that ran over the past few years. With just under 2,000 signatures the campaign tries to invigorate the TNT series which fell to the wayside after 3 seasons. It was largely based on the 80’s show and many fans believe that TNT wasn’t the network it deserved to be on.

Only in the past couple of weeks has the campaign to save Dominion. The scifi series cut short by its network, Syfy. This is certainly a niche TV series but the amount of fans pushing this campaign has achieved a lot of success in a relatively short space of time.

The campaign to revive Chuck probably is one of the most humble ones and is yet another casualty of NBC’s library. The campaign has been running for a couple of years now and still gains traction every month with more and more supporters trickling in. The final line in the main campaign on change.org is quite defining for Chuck’s history. ‘Chuck has beaten tougher odds before.’
6. Person of Interest
Total Supporters : 14,165
Let’s be clear here, Person of Interest isn’t actually necessarily cancelled with another season that’s currently set to air in 2016 albeit it with a half baked season. The campaign is for CBS to allow another broadcaster, including Netflix, to pick up the show.
