Santa Clarita Diet’s campaign to be saved on Change.org has just reached 100,000 signatures having now been canceled for just three days. This follows an outcry from many fans calling for Netflix to reverse its decision.
We reported late Friday night that Netflix had decided not to give Santa Clarita Diet its fourth season. Although it didn’t state officially why it canceled the show, most Netflix cancelations are usually related to ballooning costs and dwindling viewership numbers.
The cancellation drew a lot of attention on Friday, which is when Netflix usually cancels shows in order to hide the news.
As we’ve spoken about several times here at What’s on Netflix, Netflix is struggling to create shows that get renewed year after year. Only Grace and Frankie and Orange is The New Black's Bojack Horseman and Fuller House have made it beyond three seasons in the comedy category. That’s out of dozens of shows that have either just begun or seen cancelations since.
Only a few cast members and crew have yet to post their responses online, with Liv Hewson (playing Abby) saying the following:
As of April 30, 2007, the largest change.org petition had received 100,000 signatures. Many more are being added each hour.
This campaign is just one way that fans are trying to get the series renewed. Social media and official Netflix requests are two other methods people have tried to renew Santa Clarita Diet for Season 4.
It’s got a little way to go in beating the biggest campaign to Netflix thus far. Sense8 was canceled in 2017. It managed over 500,000 signatures, but it was successful in receiving a reply and a win. To wrap up the series and close it out, a special 2-hour episode was approved.
Netflix is being requested by many people.
