The CW communicated yesterday their decision to cancel the show The Tomorrow People. Shortly after, Twitter was on fire. Because we believe this show should have been renewed, we spoke to one of the most active members of the fandom, Twitter user savettp (@ttpchallenger), to know what’s the current state of the fandom and their next movements. Because they are not giving up:
WHAT WAS YOUR REACTOIN WHEN YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT THE CANCELLATION?
I, like many of the fans, were outraged because this was not just some show to us. This was our family. It felt like they ripped our family apart with the news. As soon as I heard about it I knew we had to fight.
WHY DO YOU BELIEVE THE SHOW SOULD GET A SECOND SEASON?
It should be renewed not only because it has so much potential but also because it changed a lot of our lives including mine. It taught me how to be brave, how to stand up for others that can’t stand up for themselves, it taught me how to be a good friend, how to be a leader. This was never just a show to me and to many of the fans really. If given a chance this show can change a lot of things in ourselves.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AND PROJECTS TO BRING THE SHOW BACK?
Our plans are to try and reach out to the CW Network and also other networks such as SyFy, Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu or whoever can pick up our show. Some of the projects we are doing are petitions. We currently have one set up by myself and also one set up by another fan that are going around on Twitter and Facebook. We are also trending hashtags, making letters, reaching whoever will listen. I am also trending with the UK fans like I have been ever sense I started this account. I’d like as many people to join in as possible. We’ve got more stuff coming. We are still organizing.
WOULD YOU CONSIDER A MOVIE LIKE FIREFLY DID WITH SERENITY?
Yes, we would consider movies.
