Mark Smith started this petition to Disney Channel

On October 27, 2017, Disney Channel’s Andi Mack made history when they introduced a gay middle school character, a first for the Disney Channel. Cyrus discovers that he has a crush on his best friend, Jonah, when Andi, the show’s main character, and Jonah get into a relationship. He confides in his friend Buffy, telling her that he’s happy for Andi and Jonah but that he is also not happy because he has a crush on Jonah. Buffy was very supportive of him, telling him that despite his feelings, he’s no different from anyone else. Shippers of Cyrus and Jonah appropriately named the pairing “Jyrus”.

The introduction of this storyline caused the show’s ratings to surge but after that episode, the Jyrus storyline was left untouched for 4 months until Cyrus’ Bar Mitzvah party, where Andi is upset over her breakup with Jonah. Andi tells Cyrus to be grateful that he doesn’t know how she feels, and to try to try to cheer her up, Cyrus tells her that he knows exactly how she feels because he too has a crush on Jonah.

The storyline was once again shelved for another 5 months until last night’s episode. After Andi and Jonah have officially gotten back together, Buffy tells Cyrus that if he’s saddened by their reunion and wants somebody to talk to, she will be there for him. He then tells her that his crush on Jonah is gone, essentially killing the Jyrus storyline, before Jonah even got to find out about Cyrus’ crush on him. It was over before it even started. Online, this choice was met with praise, due to some fans wanting Cyrus to instead get with his friend TJ, but it also saddened loyal Jyrus shippers like myself. Cyrus and Jonah were perfect for each other. Anybody who has seen the show knows that Cyrus has a lot more chemistry with Jonah than he has with TJ. Also, Cyrus hasn’t shown any signs of a possible crush on TJ.

I’m making this petition to try to persuade the writers of Andi Mack to bring Jyrus back. This petition will be mailed to the Disney Channel headquarters in Burbank, California, where they will hopefully forward it the writers of Andi Mack. I’m encouraging fans of the show, and even people who just feel like supporting the cause, to please take a moment out of your day to sign the petition to bring Jyrus back. Storylines like this one are important because they help people feel better about themselves, and not so alone. If we get enough people to sign, we can show Disney how much we care about the Jyrus storyline. Thanks!
