Ringer fans step up show campaign
Fans of Sarah Michelle Gellar's axed drama series Ringer are stepping up their campaign to save the show by appealing to other TV networks to pick up the second season.
Bosses at America's CW network scrapped the series last week after just one season on-air, leaving viewers on a knife-edge, and loyal fans launched a petition to save the show.
It gathered more than 10,000 signatures and fans are now stepping up their drive to bring Ringer back to TV by urging other networks to consider taking on the show.
A new campaign was launched on Petitionbuzz.com over the weekend and is already gaining signatures.
The appeal reads, "Ringer aired its first season on the CW and was cancelled due to low ratings in the end... Ringer has been nominated for 12 awards throughout its run and is airing in more than 40 countries worldwide. It is doing very well internationally...
"The show has gathered a slew of fans throughout its run and we would be very proud if another network would represent this remarkable series such as TNT, AMC, or FX. Ringer represents drama well while adding touches of thriller, mystery, and neo-noir in the mix."
The petition page also features a link to a poll so fans can vote which network would be the best home for the show.
A number of other petitions have also been launched on other sites including Twitter.com, Ipetitions.com and Gopetition.com, all urging TV bosses not to drop Ringer.
