Boston Legal: Petition to Continue the Cancelled TV Show

Boston LegalABC may have cancelled the Boston Legal TV show after 101 episodes but it’s clear that there’s still stories left to be told. Will the new marriages last? Where will our favorite lawyers end up?

Many believe that the series shouldn’t have ended just yet. Though the show’s ratings have dipped over the years, the numbers aren’t that low. These days, some networks would love to have that many viewers. The show often comes in second against CBS’ dominant CSI: Miami.

Would you like to see this award-winning dramady continue in some way — perhaps as a TV movie, a spin-off, or even as part of David E. Kelley’s new legal drama? If so, sign the petition below and make your case for continuing to follow the crazy exploits of Alan Shore and Denny Crane. Write to the studio and the network and tell them you’d like to see the characters live on. Go ahead, channel your “inner Alan Shore.”

To: ABC, 20th Century Fox Television, David E. Kelley Productions

We, the undersigned, greatly enjoy watching the ABC TV show, Boston Legal. The series is truly a unique program, continually controversial, outrageous, and touching — often at the same time.

We’re truly sorry to see this wonderful show come to an end and are not ready to say goodbye to the attorneys of Crane, Poole and Schmidt. Please consider continuing the escapades in some new way, perhaps as a TV movie or a spin-off. There are millions and millions of loyal Legal viewers who are waiting to see what happens next.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Boston legal is hands down the best show on television. Not only because of the warm characterisation of people who fall outside the norms of mainstream media, but also because of the way serious philosophical issues are juxtaposed with humour and made relevant without diminishing the issues. This balance is no mean feet and I fee that such programmes perform a deep social role in presenting people who would usually be at best, remote from one another on grounds of race, politics and other fundamental differences into relationship and shows the truly human common ground which can be evoked. This programme will come to be seen as a cult example of intelligent television by a much younger audience. I hope someone at ABC has the foresight to save this iconic production, before it becomes apparent that they have dropped a rare and fine opportunity. One which affords the chance to spread accord, in a world so desperate for its unique brand of feel good warmth and thoughtful intelligence. Save Boston legal for the sake of my synapses..... Yours hopefully David Smith.

    Boston Legal was the all around best tv show to ever air. Its extremely funny but also has its serious heart felt moments. I also love the way the episodes are made from real events that has happened. Oh and Alan Shore and Denny Crane, there is no better. Who ever decided to cancel this show must have gotten mad cow.
