  • BBC3:Oh look we have a very unique show
  • BBC3:That has won many awards including a couple BAFTAs
  • BBC3:And it won a popularity contest against Sherlock and other 'massive' shows, thats a really dedicated fan base
  • BBC3:And it accurately portrays mental illness
  • BBC3:And it has canon queer characters! Kieren is pan, how often do you see that represented in media? how revolutionary of us!
  • BBC3:How about we cancel it?

This is an amazing zombie series with powerful female characters and an openly bisexual lead. BBC3 canceled the show last year after deciding to put an end to the channel all together on television, but Hulu just picked it up. The writer wants to continue and finish the story somehow and Hulu would be a great place for him to do that. Go watch and support the series! Maybe even send Hulu a message letting them know how you feel about it.

“A spokesperson for Amazon said its Twitter account has been “buzzing” all weekend thanks to the “ardent fan base” responding to Friday’s news that [In The Flesh] would not continue.” Read the full article here

IMAGINE A MOVIE. A WHOLE MOVIE. ABOUT IN THE FLESH. TO FINISH THE STORY.

IMAGINE IT *∗˵╰༼✪ᗜ✪༽╯˵∗*

Why Cancelling In The Flesh Is A HUGE Mistake

In The Flesh is a great show for getting people involved in fighting inequality/challenging their beliefs/recognising the different and sometimes subtle elements of oppression and persecution. It deals with the themes of family, the political spectrum, extremism, bigotry, gender roles + expectations, abusive parents, PTSD, mental illness, fetishisation, terminal illness, sibling relationships, heteronormativity, self-hatred/self-acceptance, conforming to be accepted, the pros and cons of religion, corrupt authority figures, and so much more.

Also it’s a show with:

  • one canonically bisexual/pansexual lead who is potentially mentally ill  (and also our hero despite being gentle, kind, sensitive, and in no way the traditional macho male action hero, seriously he’s such a great role model for teenage boys)
  • one canonically homosexual lead who is definitely mentally ill and suffered with drug addiction
  • a really really strong believable female lead (and not the only one either) who tramples all over the whole manic pixie dream girl trope by showing a woman can be as wacky and ‘random’ and feminine as she likes but also be, y'know, a person who exists for herself and has her own troubles and pain
  • a lead with an emotionality abusive parent who is also most likely homosexual (so it deals with the pressure a lot of kids have to keep their sexuality secret)
  • another really really strong female lead who suffers from PSTD 

This is not just your average tv show. This show means something. It’s progressive, it’s making a statement, and it’s entirely unique. There is nothing out there quite like it. 

There will never be another show like this. This is a once in a lifetime thing. It’s cancellation is such a huge mistake. 

Hopefully another network/channel will pick the show up, because if not, then a hell of a lot of people who are usually completely ignored by mainstream television will be left out in the cold again. 

This show is a literal life saver. Bring it back. 

 

In the Flesh has been picked up on Hulu.

This means that the fanbase will grow. More people around the world will get to enjoy the show. Not only that, but this is GREAT because like Netflix, Hulu creates their own original series. We all know how much the show’s creator wants to finish his story, and I know that we want that just as much, if not more. 

Here’s how you can help:

If you watch In the Flesh on Hulu, please give it a 5 star rating!
It would also be helpful to send Hulu a message. Tell them you love the show and how awesome it would be for them to help Dominic Mitchell make a third series! You can do this with or without a Hulu account.

Finally, tell your friends about the show. Share links and show your excitement on all social media platforms. Tag Hulu on twitter for an extra boost. You can use the hashtags #saveintheflesh or #renewintheflesh

I am pretty sure you´ve already heard the sad news:
‘In the Flesh’ got cancelled.

The Fandom did so much to show the BBC, that we need a third season and that we support 'In The Flesh’ with everything we have.
But we failed. The BBC ignored us, or gave us automatic and generic verbalised answers.

We won polls (e.g. radio times best show 2014,geekiary fav summer show). The show was nominated for several things. And it won several things (e.g. Bafta 2014 Best Mini-Series).

But instead of saving the show and giving it a third season, the BBC cancelled it and introduced a new show. Guess what? It’s a zombie show. Wow, what a coincidence.

Since the fandom doesn’t want to give up, here is some information for you, what you can do!

1. Sign this petition to show the BBC they made a mistake.

2. Sign this petition to show Netflix that we would support them to renew the show for a third season.

3. Buy ‘In the Flesh - Series 1 & 2’ directly from Amazon, to demonstrate our interest for a third season. (Or leave a review.)

4. Tweet @bbcthree and tell them that they made a mistake.

5. Send BBC a mail with a (polite!) complaint.

6. Tweet @NetflixUK and tell them that we would support them to renew the show for a third season.

7. Tweet @AmazonVideoUK and tell them that we would support them to renew the show for a third season.

8. Follow 'In The Fleshdom’ on Facebook or on Twitter to stay updated.

9. Join #saveintheflash campaign group on facebook to stay updated and to join our campaigns. ♥

10. Tweet your opinion with the tags #renewintheflesh, #saveintheflesh and #intheflesh.

11. Tweet to the cast&crew! (e.g. Dom, Emily, Emmett, Luke and Harriet.) They can’t bring back the show atm but they can read our support and they will be happy to see how loved they are and they can support us with sharing the links etc. :)

12. Listen to this playlist, while mass tweeting your *** off. ♥

Feel free to add links to this list, if I forgot any!
If you find any mistakes, not working links etc. feel free to edit, or send me a message. :) ♥

Remember to stay polite and friendly! We want to be the fandom that can do everything and not the fandom that is full of assholes.

THE WORST THING HAPPENED

WHAT. THE. FUCK

After months, MONTHS of fighting.

I’m sure I don’t need to say that we WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS. WE DID NOT FIGHT FOR MONTHS SO THAT THEY CAN CANCEL THE SHOW.

WE. WILL. NOT. BE. IGNORED. LIKE. THAT.

So they don’t want to renew our show.

Joke’s on them.

Earlier we were hoping to get a new season, and I think this “hope” was maybe a reason why not all of the fleshdom participated in mass tweets and the like, though we had tremendous numbers to show!

CANCELLING IS NOT AN OPTION. If they won’t renew it, we will find someone other.

#RENEWINTHEFLESH today, 8pm UK time.

Tweet to @NetflixUK @Channel4 @AmazonVideoUK

Fannibals, we’d be so greatful for your support, too. We won’t let our show get canceled like this.

REMEMBER, #RENEWINTHEFLESH

TODAY, 8pm UK time. THIS TIME IT COUNTS. WE’LL GET IT TRENDING.

We will not be treated like this.

Death. The big sleep. Deep down, fearing the Reaper is the reason why everyone’s so messed up in their heads. They know the end is nigh and there’s nothing they can do about it, and it drives them nuts and they live their lives with one eye on the clock. We don’t have to do that. We can smash the clock to pieces. T h a t   i s   a n   i n c r e d i b l e    b l e s s i n g.

Talk about guilt. Try looking the parents of your mate in the eye and have them think you’re a hero when really you’re a fake and a liar. I told Lisa’s parents I’d run- I told everyone I’d run out of bullets. And I hadn’t run out of bullets.
