Here’s the update: We’re talking to some very interested parties.  They really like the show, but really LOVE its passionate, pre-established fanbase.  It’s a double bonus for them: getting an awesome series that comes with its own fervent following.

Yes, Dark Matter’s fate may rest on financial numbers and contractual clauses, but fan metrics will play an even more crucial motivational role.  As internal discussions ramp up, I’ve been asked to forward social media links (articles, petitions, fan reaction and responses) and statistics on the show’s online presence. So I cannot stress enough the importance of tonight’s planned tweet fest.  Yes, Dark Matter fans can directly influence the decision makers by participating.

YOU can make an impact!

YOU can make a difference!

Tonight at 9 pm EST/6 pm PST we STORM THE CASTLE!

Here what you need to know!

Follow @DarkMatterFTL .  They’ll reveal the secret hashtag just prior to start.

Only use that one hashtag, but make sure to reference the show, “Dark Matter”, in your tweet!

Enlisting the help of some heavy hitters for tonight’s event, so be sure to be there. No telling who you’ll see!

If you manage to find a new home for the show, have you considered licensed products… t-shirts, hoodies, coffee mugs, replica props, Funko Pops, stickers, temporary tattoos, Halloween costumes, phone cases, etc… as a way of generating income to help fund the show?

That’s 3:00 a.m. in Germany … but I’ll try to be there!
I hope Dark Matter is picked up by an interested network.
It would be absolutely tragic, if someone actually wants to continue the show and can’t because of “contractual clauses”. I mean, it would be not enough for Syfy to kill Dark Matter on their own network, but as a “additional bonus” forbid to get picked up by another interested party??? Seriously, that would be pathetic …

Big Fan and Helped via https://fedaygin.tumblr.com/post/165115623995/help-dark-matter-to-find-a-new-home-sci-fi-fans & many other ways <3 I also support via Blu Ray Purchase once several Seasons BR comes for sale. Prefer that way if serie has several seasons cause would be waste if buy BR with 1 season. I've sent Direct Email to AMC & HBO with DM Footage & Review text.

Long time ago Bought the BR with many Stargate Atlantis seasons <3 I hope that Dvd's Production be stopped soon and then just keep one Format available which is Blu Ray smile Less waste that way and is good cause BR device comes cheaper every year. Team Raza <3

Wish good rest of the year for you & Whole Dark Matter Crew smile

I really don’t care who picks up Dark Matter, as long as someone picks up Dark Matter. You deserved that fourth season so much that not getting it was both irritating and sad to see. Step forward whomever the hero saving the show may be and bask in the adoration of millions of grateful Dark Matter fans.

I’ll just leave this here(L+7 DVR numbers for the finales this season, Killjoys not available yet).

Dark Matter finale – 1.34 million viewers(Canceled)
Wynonna Earp finale – 843k viewers(Renewed)

Well, that sounds exciting! Likewise, it’s a reason I can’t believe it got cancelled – a well-rated show that is well established and has a built in fan base. What is SYFY going to replace it with but some unknown quantity. It just even seems like a bad decision on a business level.

Anyway, the excitement of tonight got me thinking again on a quote I used a few days ago. With a nod to Will S. and Henry V (who I think would be DM fans, anyway), my challenge!

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close their firewall up with our Twitter dead.
In renewal there’s nothing so becomes a person
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of cancellation blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with sharp-favour’d tweet;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the trending of the tweets
Like the brass cannon; let the hashtags o’erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the mouse and stretch the fingers wide,
Hold hard the keyboard and bend up every tweet
To its full length. On, on, you noblest Fandom.

For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘Renewal, for Lulu, Bubba, and Saint Joseph!'”

A big shout out to all the Floridians awaiting Irma. Drea is working at an emergency shelter tonight. Deni has packed up and heading inland. Airelle, how are you doing? I pray that all our Floridian friends stay safe tonight!

Whew, this storm has me spooked. Anyway, I think I talked my son into tweeting tongiht. He thinks social media is lame, so this is a biggie! Keep a look out for him, @evandixon . Evan is better suited for DM, being in the target demographic. However, don’t let ages fool you, I’m much less mature than Evan. He was born old.

Thanks to all that are working on this twitter campaign.

Prayers to all those in Irma’s path!

Joseph –
i don’t even know what a ‘blog’ is. but subscribing to something usually implies a $ fee $. am i wrong?
i just want Dark Matter renewed; picked up by Netflix – or any network.
are you helping to do that?

sylvia

@Bridget…Not sure of your question. If you are asking if there is a subscription fee to Netflix, the answer is yes. It is a modest fee monthly for the online tv and movie content they have. I think it costs a little more if you want their DVD service where they would send you a movie DVD, you watch it then return it.

Joe is trying to get Dark Matter a new home and all the blog and fans are helping with the twitter effort.

hope this helps.

Here’s my letter to Netflix:

Hullo to the powers that be!

Pardon my cheeky salutation, but as the topic of this email deals with a largely cheeky bunch, I felt it apropos.

My name is Maricel Edwards and I am a voracious fan of the TV show, Dark Matter. It had aired on the Syfy Channel for 3 seasons and during that time, it garnered a large and loyal fanbase. I can’t speak about numbers but perhaps the creator himself can clarify if you need more info. (I’d inserted a link to this blog here.)

I guess numbers matter in this entertainment game, which is why I provided that link, but I’m not a numbers gal. I’m an English teacher and inveterate sci-fi/fantasy nerd and I know a grand story when I see one.

Dark Matter is grand. Epic, even. It is Shakespearean in scope, providing its viewers with majestic vistas, compelling plot lines, and a motley crew who are flawed and tragic but who yearn for redemption – and if that doesn’t speak to the human condition, I don’t know what does.

Dark Matter is intelligent and classy, though-provoking and sassy; it is must-see-TV at its finest. I believe it would find a perfect home with you, Netflix, because you have proven to be just as intelligent and classy, investing and committing to amazing programming that caters to those of us who are sick and tired of banal and insipid garbage.

Dark Matter needs its story to be told. You already have the first 2 seasons on your roster; what better way to do the right thing and give the show the ending it deserves?

As a long-time subscriber to your service, I have faith in you. Please, please, please pick up Dark Matter for its last 2 seasons.

Yours respectfully,
Maricel Edwards

We choose to save Dark Matter. We choose to save Dark Matter tonight and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
