The Gates: Petition to Save the ABC TV Show from Being Cancelled

The Gates tv showThere’s a lot of incredible things going on in the Gates community. As unbelievable as it might seem, the show’s ratings haven’t been very good. As a result, there’s a very real possibility that The Gates TV show will be cancelled and won’t be back for season two.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for ABC is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewing is being counted. If not, it’s not.

However, if you like The Gates and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be directly counted. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested and might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via “snail-mail” to: Mr. Paul Lee, President, ABC, 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521, RE: The Gates
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To ABC, Fox Television Studios, and Little Engine Entertainment:

We, the undersigned, enjoy watching The Gates on the ABC network. The series has just the right mixture of drama and supernatural suspense.

Please find a way to keep The Gates on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on ABC or, if necessary, on another Disney-owned channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Hello, You guts really need to bring back, "The Gates", it was a very great show that ended far too soon.

    What a disappointment that you cancelled this show after only 1 season. I feel like the producers didn't try very hard. I never heard of this show prior to it being on Netflix and maybe that was the issue, because it was not the show itself. This is a show worth watching and was a very interesting concept. Please try again now that people have actually heard of the show. Thanks!

    Best show ever, seen it on Netflix. Mad to see no other seasons, when I learned it was on ABC, I wasn't surprised it was cancelled. Bring it back please, but get rid of the cheifs wife she is an annoying wimpy git.

    I think this was a wonderful TV series and am very upset that it ended. Even more so I am not happy with the way it ended, you are leaving so many things left unfinished and on top of that adding new plot twists. I was strongly looking forward to a second season or at least a closing epsoide or movie. Bring back the gates please!!!

    Please bring the Gates back. It was the best vampire series ever. It should be promoted and the music score should be mor dramatic. With all the vampire and zombie shows on the tv and movies, now is the time to bring it back...please. it was Likely a series before it's time, but now is the time. Thanks

    I watched the first season on Netflix and LOVED it and was disappointed to find out that there wasn't a second season and wasn't going to be a second season. I would love for the season to be continued
  • Michelle HCountry: USA2015-02-17 03:04:02

  • Carmen TorresCountry: PR, USA2015-01-25 22:59:03
    The series was great it deserves another season with the same characters and the actors that play them. The last episode wasn't the end there are too many loose ends.
  • Jesse RamirezCountry: United States2015-01-24 09:15:10
    In just saw the entire season and it needs to come back.
  • JessicaCountry: Australia2015-01-23 10:18:56
    This show is amazing. The creators and writers were just ahead of there time. This show would be a hit right now with all the other supernatural shows that are being enjoyed by viewers. Please bring back a season 2, even just to finish the cliff hangers in season 1 so viewers aren't left wondering what happened. Even a movie would suffice
  • mario cutilloCountry: United States2015-01-16 01:16:34

    I thought that the gates was a really good tv show, really enjoyed it, and watched it many times. I would hate for you not to make a season 2 because for us fan that enjoy the show we would really like to know what happens to the characters.
