Fans of The CW’s ‘Ringer’ have launched an online petition to help save the show from being axed before it’s second season.
The movement on Petitionbuzz.com already has more than 8,000 signatures from fans all over the world hoping to keep the show on air.
The show’s star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who plays twin sisters caught in the middle of some pretty big drama. The season finale left fans of the series wanting more, and the show even earned several award nominations including a People’s Choice nod, and a win at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards. So why would TV execs want to axe the series?
The ratings may be on the fence for CW bosses who will likely make the decision by next Thursday. Shows already receiving pick-ups include 90210, The Vampire Diaries, and Supernatural.
A statement posted by petition organizers reads, “We want the CW to grant Ringer a second season. It is your 5th best-selling series on Itunes and has a lot of international fans due to the show’s bigger international sales than most of your other shows… It has over 305,000 and growing followers on (entertainment social network) GetGlue. We will support Ringer…”
Upfronts for the CW are next Thursday, where the full lineup will be announced.
