'FlashForward' may have been discarded by ABC, but that hasn't stopped fans from aggressively campaigning for another network to pick up the series. It's worked before for other shows and according to TVOverMind, Starz might be the savior fans are hoping for.
A fan posted on the Save FlashForward! Facebook fanpage that they were told by a Starz's representative that the network is aggressively looking into picking up the series.
To prove their dedication to the series, 'FlashForward' fans have staged blackouts in front of ABC offices.
The series starred Joseph Fiennes (right) as an FBI agent looking into the cause of a worldwide blackout that showed citizens a glimpse into their future.
The series debuted to strong ratings, 12.47 million viewers, but fizzled as the season progressed. The series finale on ABC was seen by less than 5 million people. 'FlashForward' received favorable initial reviews, but suffered from a long hiatus and behind-the-scenes changes that saw a variety of players coming and going.
In October 2009, Marc Guggenheim left the series, prompting co-creator and executive producer David S. Goyer to step in and replace him. However, Goyer didn't stick around long and departed in February 2010. Goyer remained involved with the series, but his wife, Jessika, Lisa Zwerling and Timothy J. Lea acted as showrunners for the remainder of the season.
Starz recently canceled critical darling 'Party Down' because the show never attracted a large audience. Many argued that's because many viewers don't subscribe to Starz, so how would 'FlashForward' find and build an audience on the cable network?
'FlashForward' ended with another blackout, leaving audiences with a cliffhanger. Will Starz give them the resolution they're hoping for? Time will tell.
