After raising thousands of dollars, getting millions of signatures and even buying a freakin’ plane to fly over the Netflix headquarters, Shadowhunters fans are back at it again with another attempt to save the show from cancellation. What’s left for them to do, you may ask? Oh, just casually purchasing a billboard in New York City’s Times Square.
Fans pooled their money together and rented an advertisement that ran briefly on Friday, June 29. The electronic signs broadcasted the words QUOTE “ALL THE LEGENDS ARE TRUE” and “#SaveShadowhunters” to the thousands of tourists, workers, etc., walking through the bustling section of NYC at the time.
One person wrote on Twitter after the billboard was revealed QUOTE “I’m so proud of us. We’re really legendary.”
Someone else added, in all caps, QUOTE “THIS IS HOW YOU LOVE AND PROMOTE A TV SHOW!!!! THIS IS WHAT WE’VE BEEN FIGHTING FOR THE LAST EIGHT MONTHS SINCE OUR SHOW WAS ABANDONED!!! AND GUESS WHAT???? WE AREN’T LEAVING!!!! LONG LIVE SHADOWHUNTERS!!!!!!!!!!”
Harry Shum Jr., who played Magnus Bane on the Freeform series, saw fans’ latest effort and had a simple, yet powerful reaction. He tweeted in response to the billboard QUOTE “wow.”
Just days before, co-star Matthew Daddario got wind of what supporters were planning on doing and couldn’t help but be intrigued about what was to come. He replied with a curious emoji to a fan who said QUOTE “Very proud of this 😊😉 Looking forward to seeing the billboard.”
It’s been almost a month since it was announced that Freeform would not be renewing Shadowhunters for a fourth season, but fans are showing no signs of slowing down their efforts to getting the network to change its mind. They have a TON of reasons why the show shouldn’t be canceled, so we think it’s safe to assume the fight will continue for a long time. Do you think Shadowhunters should be picked up? Will Freeform listen to fans’ pleas? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below! I’m your host Emile Ennis Jr and thanks for watching Clevver!
