ABC Family's Twisted seems to be coming to an end. With just one season in, the show may not be renewed for another season.
However, it seems as if this is common with many shows that go on air. If there's not enough views, the show gets cut, and a new show gets put on.
ABC Family did the same thing with another show titled, The Lying Game.
Twisted fans are not holding back and they are doing whatever it takes to convince ABC Family to bring back the show.
The show includes society's everyday problems and themes such as crimes - murder, mental illnesses, relationships, keeping secrets, adoption, and more. The show allows viewers to see how society is.
Twisted is about three best friends, Danny, Jo, and Lacey who part ways, due to a crime that Danny commits when he was young. The show starts off with Danny's return from juvenile. The show explores the life Danny's father, Vikram and the people out to get Danny and the people in his life. The show includes obstacles of everyday challenges. There is no better way to describe the show, other than the name itself, it's twisted.
Popdust talks to a fan who spills all about the show, what her and other fans are trying to accomplish, and more.
Jenay is one of Twisted's biggest supporters. Her and a group fans came together to start the Renew Twisted campaign. The Renew Twisted campaign does their all to save the show.
Jenay shares, "Twisted is an amazing show that covers several issues many teens face today - bullying, being gay, and mental illnesses, as well as three best friends renewing their friendship." She feels that concepts such as "bullying, being gay, and mental illnesses" matter.
She tells Popdust why she thinks the show should continue "we want another season because the finale was amazing. We think that as the show continues it will find it's feet and gain more viewers. We fans are working very hard to promote the show. We gained over 40,000 likes on their official Facebook page and we started promoting over two weeks ago." That's pretty impressive Twisted fans. Great job, keep up the great work.
This isn't the first time fans come together to save a show. Many fans have come together to save shows in the past and have succeeded. Twisted fans only hope they succeed too.
Jenay opens up about what she's doing to save the show, "my group is called Renew Twisted Campaign and you can find us on Facebook and Twitter. We are currently holding a charity event that we feel fits in with the theme of Twisted. The charity is called NAMI - National Alliance for Mental Illness. It's an amazing charity that Halle Barry supports as well. We are asking fans to donate just $ 1.00 to the charity in honor of ABC Family and Twisted Season 2. Shows that have been on the verge of cancellation have been saved by doing this before. If they donate they will also get a gift from our artist Sherry." Trying to save the show and support a foundation? That's awesome.
With no official announcement of the show coming to an end, not many of Twisted's viewers saw this coming. Jenay tells Popdust about her hard work to promote the show, "I think that many fans didn't know they were on the verge of being cancelled due to low ratings. When my group noticed that episode 18 had very low numbers we came together to promote it as much as possible. We covered the official ABC Family Facebook page with posts to watch the show live and we tweeted and answered questions. We posted articles and promo videos. We have done so much to promote and now save the show."
There are over 2,200+ signs on the petition to save the show, see for yourself.
Popdust wishes all the best to the Renew Twisted campaign. If you love Twisted as much as Jenay does, be sure to step up and say something! Give ABC Family some feedback on their website, tweet @TwistedABCF and @ABCFamily, post on their Facebook wall, sign the petition, spread the word, and donate $1.00 to NAMI.
Special thanks to Jenay for speaking on behalf of the Renew Twisted campaign.
