Bunheads was a show about former Las Vegas showgirl, Michelle, who ends up marrying her long time chaser, Hubbell, and becomes an instructor to her step-mother's, Fanny, dance school. The show, created by Gilmore Girls show runner Amy Sherman-Palladino (AS-P), received huge critical success and was praised by fans and critics alike. However, much to the worlds distress, the show only lasted for eighteen magical episodes before it was cancelled by ABC Family, (but still available to stream on Freeform).
Fans were crushed, critics were mystified and the cast were heartbroken. The show had such a special quality unlike anything else on TV. It's low stakes storylines paired with incredible dance numbers, rapid fire dialogue and loveable characters was so unique to the TV landscape of its time. There truly hadn't been a show like it, well, since AS-P's acclaimed Gilmore Girls ended its run in 2007.
Now, with Gilmore Girls returning to Netflix for a (beyond) highly anticipated revival, fans are left wondering; "what about Bunheads?!". In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, AS-P said of a possible revival; "In a heartbeat.. I'd do it in a second". This brought new hope to fans online, with news outlets sharing their belief that this show deserves a second chance to shine! Actors of the show have tweeted their support for the show which has remained close to all of their heats in the last three years since its cancellation, (many of the actors will actually return to screens in AS-P's Gilmore reboot, proving that ties have not been severed).
Now, in the era of the reboot, lets make this happen. With companies such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon constantly releasing plans to revive all our favourite, (and sometimes undeserving) shows of the past, why not Bunheads? A show which never got the ending it deserved.
It is time for fans to show their support of the show and make their voices heard. To everyone who cried with Ginny on that bench in the finale or watched in awe as Sasha preformed Istanbul, the time is now. Sign this petition and show your support of the show and maybe it will finally get the recognition and love that it undoubtably deserves.
