Last month, when Lifetime announced that it will be axing the supernatural television drama 'Witches of East End' just after being aired for two seasons, it came as a surprise to many. Now fans are keen to see the return for a third season - at least on some other network.
Substantiating its decision to cancel 'Witches of East End', Lifetime pointed out that the viewership of the show had declined considerably during its second season. Deadline stated that 'Witches of East End' Season 2 had an average viewership of just 1.1 million - a drop of 42 percent from the first season.
Meanwhile, taking a cue from the cancellation as well as the return of 'Longmire', fans of 'Witches of East End' are now demanding that the show be renewed for another season. In fact, fans of 'Longmire' were successful getting back their favorite show on the TV sets. They not only flooded the social media with their demands, but also signed petitions for the return of 'Longmire' and eventually Netflix picked the show up after A&E cancelled it after three seasons.
The success of 'Longmire' fans has led fans to wonder if 'Witches of East End' will also get an extension, albeit by a different network. Cartermatt reports that the chances of the show being picked up by another network is bright, considering the fact that it features good actors and the show still has a considerable fan following. According to a report by Christian Today, the petition for the return of 'Witches of East End' has gathered more than 70,000 signatures.
Meanwhile, Rachel Boston, who portrays the character of Ingrid Beauchamp in 'Witches of East End', recently tweeted, "Thank you to everyone who went on this extraordinary journey with us. Your love, kindness, and support are forever magic."
From her tweet, it appears that Boston is already prepared to say goodbye to the show.
The cast of 'Witches of East End' also includes Julia Ormond (Joanna Beauchamp), Mädchen Amick (Wendy Beauchamp), Daniel Di Tomasso (Killian Gardiner), Eric Winter (Dash Gardiner), Jenna Dewan Tatum (Freya Beauchamp), and Christian Cooke (Frederick Beauchamp).
