This was re tweeted by Stephanie Leonidas and I thought I would post it here.

Currently there is a petition asking Netflix to pick up Defiance and continue the show.
Below is the link.

Consider it signed, especially if the actors are re-tweeting it as well it shows even they realize the show could still go on.

As an added bonus, if Netflix picks up the show, we could see some casti females nekkid.

Siiigned. I had to go through this schtako when Legend of the Seeker was cancelled. I think Defiance has a larger fan-base, so I hope these efforts pay off.

Amazon has the existing seasons. Netflix is not going to continue a competitors series. This is poorly thought out.

I signed the petition because I want to see if Nolan makes it back from Jackson. The roads are bumpy as hell around that city, all the curves are banked wrong for a tractor-trailer, and the locals have no idea how to merge onto I-55.

Netflix saved Longmire, and its fourth season was great. I don't see why Defiance couldn't get the same treatment.

There has to be a season 4 because Nolan needs a proper human toilet.

Following up...

As of last night, there were 453 signatures after the petition started Oct 21st (this past Wednesday, as I write this). Can I ask the OP and maybe Kiwibird to update this---maybe even sticky it? Somebody should start checking the numbers every morning. I'd be curious to see how much support we can muster.

Not signing it. I have too many bills to pay and two teen girls to raise. Not gonna pay out to Netflix too. Now, if it were a petition to make Sci-Fi (proper spelling tyvm) keep Defiance another Season or two on the Sci-Fi Channel....Yes, I would sign it.

Do we really want the show to come back? And possibly have it affect the game?

Trion is no longer held to the lore of the show anymore, its open to do and introduce what they want.

1) It is irrelevant that Amazon carries Defiance. They also have Netflix originals on Amazon (House of Cards).

2) Netflix is legit as a production company, and they would probably be up to the task.

3) Netflix needs more Sci-Fi in their line-up, this would rectify that.

4) Defiance was SyFy's highest rated show.

5) Trion was never constrained by the TV show content anyway. They even stated the two were intended to be able to exist independently. Just look at all the mobs in the game which have never appeared or been mentioned in the show.

6) Signed.

At this point, we just need signatures to show support. It's not 100% that Netfix will take it but the petition with many signatures could be useful in the future if we need to contact someone else. It's going to be a long process, but I'm in it for the long haul. Hope you sign and spread the message.

It's up to 642. I check it everyday- whispers: I'm obsessed.

The twitter acct for the petition posts updates. Check it out @bringbackdefi

I'm not certain, but the writers may not necessarily be the same. If a network picks it up I'm sure there will be negotiations, etc.

Sorry for another post. Just wanted to add Kevin Shand (who played the Sensoths), The Avila boys' family (Baby Luke), and the ever-lovely Stephanie Leonidas, RT'd the petition.

Hoping Tony Curran pulls through and shares the link as well ;)

I would love to see its returned to TV..
But I have a question... Couldn't we give donations/kickstarters to the game to help with up building it and adding more player input?

We really need to find a way to get the word out to the larger viewing audience. Like the other 1 million viewers.

Other than spamming Facebook, I'm just not sure how.

Someone mentioned a blog for fans to sign their thoughts on the show. It wouldn't be tied to one specific network.

How does that sound?



BTW 162 to go to reach 1000.

More people have to learn about this - I am fairly sure there exist A LOT more than 1000 fans of DEFIANCE - just from the Amazon sales alone... Not to mention also the iTunes and Google Play sales.
"Ratings" can not and do not measure all the viewers of on-line shows, and do not measure people who buy shows on google, amazon, iTunes, or just watch on Netflix.
Defiance IS SyFy's most highest rated show. Binge watching episodes back-to-back really paints the story of a great Novel in progress.
With all the current story lines of The Omec Ship, Doc Yewll's clone waiting to awaken from the tank, Berlin returning to Defiance, Datak Tarr and family surviving against all odds, the show must go on. Ok, I understand they lost a few actors - but in a SciFi world, it is so easy to bring in new fresh talent - fresh faces Alien or Human.
Continue to Live in DEFIANCE!
It is SOOO much better than Star Trek, and Worlds better than Star Wars, and both of those franchises Earned hundreds of millions of dollars. Continue the series, more people need to sign the petition - and TRION should feature the petition in-game.

Now I like watching Defiance, but Defiance being "worlds better" than Star Wars?

Dear TRION,

You are a great big software corporation making money making games !
Could YOU purchase DEFIANCE the TV-Show from SyFy - maybe they would sell it to you ?

It would end the Split ownership - and give TRION a little more creative control over the game and the show,
bringing more together for both - as one unit.

So TRION - would you kindly please purchase DEFIANCE off of SyFy ?

The production company is owned by NBC Universal and the streaming rights are held by Amazon. Trion cant afford a graphic artist on staff.

The F is wrong with you people?

Amazon has streaming rights of past episodes. Not new ones. If anyone would like to make a petition to Amazon go ahead, please. I will sign that as well and I'm sure all the other fans will sign it too. This is not a competition on who has the best idea or who can get it saved.

"I don't know why I keep saying this", but a bunch of us thought about Amazon as well but chose Netflix as a starting point for multiple reasons. If Netflix doesn't pick it up we go elsewhere. Is this inefficient? Maybe. But we are just fans and showing support is one of the few things we can do. It's not easy when you're working with a small group of people trying to spread the word on different platforms. Anyone and everyone who RTs or posts it on Facebook etc is very much appreciated.

I said this before and I'll say it again. I don't care how long it takes. I will be happy with a movie 5 years from now. I'm a fan who's not willing to let go just yet.


Moving on..

We passed 1000 signers.
Thank you! <3

PS Sea_Jay I love your enthusiasm but television production is very different than video game production.
