After months of tireless work, promoting and spamming Twitter and Facebook with endless requests for people to watch Flashforward and to write letters to ABC to let them know how much they love the show - it is being reported that Flashforward will not be renewed. It isn't absolutely official yet - at least ABC haven't announced it - but the makers of the show and some of the cast have confirmed that Flashforward is over. You can read more here.
On a personal level, it's painful. I feel that Flashforward wasn't given a fair chance and am quite sure it would have picked up a lot once Lost ended.
As a presenter of Squirrelio Fans I would like to say thanks so much in particular to David Vox Mullen of Flashforcast for rallying the troops and making everyone stand up and fight for Flashforward. We did all we could but ultimately, the poor ratings system was far too big a hurdle. Thanks also to every single fan who was inspired by David and wrote letters, emails and sent Flashforward related things to ABC - Flashforward fans truly are the BEST!
While today's news is sad, we are still clinging to the hope that another network will give Flashforward another chance. I will update as soon as I hear more!
On a happier note, we did record our podcast this week!
