If you haven’t already heard, the beloved Freeform series Shadowhunters has been cancelled and the show’s fans are doing everything they can to save it from leaving the air for good. However, Shadowhunter fans aren’t just depending on a hashtag to bring awareness to their cause and to find a savior for the show. On top of their hashtag SaveShadowhunters, fans are taking their plans to save the show one step further by raising money for a charitable cause.
It’s being reported that fans have raised over 11 THOUSAND dollars for The Trevor Project – an organization dedicated to providing outreach, counseling, and other lifesaving services for LGBTQ+ youth. The reason why the fandom decided to donate to The Trevor Project is simple: Shadowhunter fans strongly believe that the show has a very important impact on the LGBTQ+ community.
According to the fundraiser’s description, the organizers wrote QUOTE, “The stunning show Shadowhunters has just announced its cancellation and heartbroken doesn’t even begin to cover how we’re feeling. This show… This show, with its diverse casting and representation. This show, with its wonderful LGBTQIA+ portrayal, from pride in being oneself to a healthy, strong relationship. This show, with its empowered and empowering women who are independent, solid friends, and not overlooked by anyone. This show, with family ties and love being a driving force for good. This show, with its brilliant cast who are kind and genuinely care about their characters and their fans. This show, with its talented and dedicated crew who love it just as much as anyone. This show, with its incredible fans who stand together – united, always. This show, that wins awards and has found its place as a respectable show in the fantasy genre.
Currently fans are working hard on a #SaveShadowhunters campaign, but we thought it would be useful to channel some of our passion and frustration to raise awareness and also showcase the generosity of the Shadowhunters fandom. Let’s show off the power of our fandom to do good.”
On top of raising all this money, over 100,000 people have signed a change-dot-org petition to bring back the series – I mean, it’s pretty clear there’s a huge fanbase for this show and if Freeform isn’t going to pick it back up, someone else needs to ASAP. Sadly, as of right now, neither Freeform nor another network have publicly spoken about saving the show and it’s very obvious from all of this that fans have NO plans to give up.
Is it surprisingly that despite all of the support Shadowhunters has been getting from their very large fanbase, the show hasn’t been picked back up yet?!
