WGN America today (04/14/2017) announced the cancellation of one of its most popular shows..."Outsiders".

Telling the story of the Farrell Clan on Shay Mountain, a family who has lived there for over 200 years, and the fictional Kentucky town of Blackburg who seem to have an uneasy truce until the arrival of conglomerate coal company, One Planet, who wants to destroy the mountain in order to obtain the valuable coal.

We viewers feel this is a strong family drama that addresses important social issues of acceptance between very different cultures that needs to be shared and continued. We are petitioning for either WGN to pick it back up, or for another network to run the series.

****UPDATE 05/06/2017****

"Outsiders was officially cancelled on Tuesday, May 2nd. However, we the fans are not even close to calling it done. We hold out hope for another network to pick up our Family's Show, even if it needs to take a hiatus for a Season. Sony TV was put in an awkward position and left scrambling after the decision by WGN/Tribune to find another network on little to no notice.

In the event that no new networks pick up our Family's Show, we respectfully request a movie to wrap up the loose ends presented on the series finale of Season 2.
