'Netflix correct your mistake' trends as fans fight to save cancelled series

Netflix subscribers, sick to the back teeth of the constant cancellations, are now mobilising to protest against the loss of praised shows like First Kill, Warrior Nun, 1899 from the platform.

Naturally, not every show is a success. The cancellation of Netflix's Blockbuster was somewhat ironic owing to the sitcom's premise, but with other shows that increase representation of different identities and sexualities on the small screen, it starts to feel a little personal. As per a report, it's apparently the rate of completion for a series that affects whether or not it gets the chop. Regarding First Kill, only 44% of viewers watched the season to the end and 1899 saw 32% of its viewers complete the show.

It's calculated, isn't it, in both senses of the word. In response, it looks like angered subscribers and fans of cancelled shows are also organising themselves for the greatest effect. Petitions have been in place but this is something new.

Yesterday was the designated day where subscribers got "Netflix correct your mistake" to trend on Twitter and 17th January is when fans celebrate actress Kristina Tonteri-Young's birthday, who starred in Warrior Nun as Sister Beatrice. There's even corresponding time zones for fans all over the world in order to coordinate themselves and instructions not to mix up the trends.

I'm honestly impressed. As many others have already attested, sometimes shows need a second season to utilise their storylines, characters and themes to shock and entrance their audiences. Imagine shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Wire only seeing one season before data decided that there was no money to be made from them. I'm not sure whether Netflix will listen to these fans, however, it's safe to say that everyone else is watching.
