On Monday, fans of The Event got together to support their cancelled TV series. The “Save The Event” website encouraged fans to buy related products — purchase episodes, the soundtrack, or pre-order the DVD set — and to send polite emails and tweets to Marc Graboff and Ted Harbert, high-ranking executives at NBC-Universal. Their goal is to get the series back, in some form — either as a regular show, a mini-series, a movie, or whatever.
Though series creator Nick Wauters has taken a job working on CW’s The Vampire Diaries (and seems to be enjoying it), he’s still hoping that The Event can return. He supported the Monday effort via his Twitter account.
He also noted that there are still official efforts to keep the show alive. When the show was cancelled, it was reported that talks were underway to possibly continue the series elsewhere.
Recently, Wauters indicated that those possibilities are still alive when he tweeted, “We are still actively searching for a way to bring back #theevent. No concrete update at this time, guys. Hopefully we’ll hear smthg soon.”
What do you think? Do you think The Event can realistically be saved? If a regular series isn’t an option, how would you like to see it come back?
