Lifetime cancelled the supernatural series Witches of East End after it completed its second season this past Summer despite the fact that it was still pulling decent ratings for the cable channel and had a very active online fanbase. Those fans continued to make noise after the cancellation and that has apparently caught the attention of the streaming service Netflix according to series co-star Madchen Amick. She has started up what she calls “Operation Netflix Extreme” and is calling for fans to phone and email the network and also send out tweets with specific hashtags. The specifics can be found at this link (and below), and the initial thrust began last week to continue into this. I have said before that I believe Witches of East End would be a good pickup for Netflix as it has a loyal following and is likely well within their budget range. I will continue to follow the campaign closely over the coming weeks, but in the meantime fans of the show should definitely be active in the campaign’s efforts to convince Netflix to pick it up for a third season and beyond.
UPDATE: Apparently the first round of communications went well and Round 2 is now in progress. There is no end date for this and below is what the fans should do to demonstrate their support of the show to Netflix.
