    I just started watching this show and it hooked me up on the first episode. And after the first episode the series kept on getting better and better. The thing is that many fans are not keeping up with this show because they are not getting their favorite ship. For example, when Francis left many of the fans boycotted the show, leaving less viewers. These fans need to know that this series is awesome either way it does and you have to watch it to find out if mary gets together with Francis.

    I think it shouldn’t be cancelled. Its a super good show, and i can see it going on for at least 2 more seasons. some of the best series out the went for about 9 seasons because i believe they catch the younger generation with the suspense of whats happening next

    I’ve read historical fiction novels and loved them. it’s so nice to see a shoe with such a great story line, characters, and settings. each actor plays their role so well. I have every episode pvr’d and have watched them over and over. this shows cannot be cancelled. I would be completely heart broken.

    Having worked in TV, I can tell you A18-49 is not the target audience for Reign. Yes most advertisers use that demo but a huge chunk use different demos such as T12-17 or A18-34 or even A25-54. My guess is Reign is doing all right in the younger demos which they are clearly targeting. And a show can be very profitable appealing to that younger demo and the advertisers who are targeting them.

    I love this show. I can’t get enough and I hope the show doesn’t get cancelled. I was disappointed when the CW cancelled The Secret Circle, so let’s hope they don’t cancel another good show!
