After taking over London, the #SaveShadowhunters fan campaign is turning its attention to Los Angeles.
In case you missed it, banner adverts were previously bought for a number of buses in the UK’s capital city in a continued bid to convince a network to pick up Shadowhunters for another season, after the show was cancelled by Freeform.
Keen to maintain its momentum, fans are now raising money to target LA via a crowdfunding website. The GoFundMe page says that if they hit their target of £3,000, they will “hire a large truck with a #SaveShadowhunters design on the side [and] park at and circle the main target networks in LA for five days”.
At the time of posting, the crowdfunding campaign has passed the halfway point of its target.
Other previous moves to promote #SaveShadowhunters include a plane flying over Netflix’s headquarters in LA, a month-long subway advert in Seoul, and a billboard advert in Times Square.
Over the past few days, the stars of Shadowhunters – including Katherine McNamara, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Harry Shum Jr, and Matthew Daddario – have paid tribute to the show as filming has wrapped on the third and (as things stand) final season.
Recently, Netflix executive Cindy Holland revealed that they receive more than a hundred emails a day from the fanbase, hoping for the streaming platform to save the supernatural drama – although it isn’t currently in discussions to save the show.
Shadowhunters will conclude next year with 10 episodes that make up the second half of season three, as well as a special two-part finale.
Freeform explained the show’s cancellation, saying that it “just couldn’t make the economics work”.
Shadowhunters returns to Freeform in 2019 with 12 episodes left to air, including a two-episode special finale. Netflix airs the show in the UK.
