Why this petition matters

Started by Freya Ruehr

Whereas; a show this closely tied to a real-world social issue that an episode literally ended with a PSA about it from the actors behind the female leads should not be allowed to end (unless perhaps a too-crucial character's actor has extenuating circumstances) until it has inspired enough of a movement towards significant real-world change on the issue

Whereas; as a journalism show it sets itself apart from the crowd of medical shows and cop shows (even those like New Amsterdam or East New York that are trying to inspire change in those areas)

Whereas; we need more media depictions of good honest journalism from underdogs in this current age of misinformation and hopefully in addition to the issue it was "designed around" a show like this might help to save a few local papers

Whereas; if S1 is going to be as shorter-than-average as I think it is it needs more seasons to produce the same amount of content a normal show would get

Whereas; this is one of the few new shows with a strong female lead and a diverse cast that didn't get called too woke when it started out (and even the white-savior-ing it was accused of actually related to an intention to help white people who would identify with the heroine relate to the plight of the natives) which means clearly it's doing something that both sides could agree with

Whereas; its setting helps break the monotony of things 90% of the time being set in LA, New York or [small town somewhere in middle america that doesn't exist irl] and the fact that despite the expected partial-filming-in-Canada it still films more than just the establishing-shots in Alaska itself means it helps the Alaskan economy and perhaps native talent get noticed

Therefore; ABC should renew Alaska Daily for a second season
