Ok, so while I know this may not be as big an issue as ending world hunger or poverty or anything, it's still something I think would be pretty nice to have in these times.

In July of 2012, the show "1000 Ways to Die" ceased airing due to a strike at Spike TV put on by the staff and actors.

This show, a docu-fiction-comedy with the narration of the amazing Ron Perlman, detailed stories of some of the stupidest and most bizarre ways people could (and nearly in ALL cases actually HAVE) met the Grim Reaper. From being crushed by a falling bathtub while spying on tenants to getting caught in a woodchipper to even historical deaths like that of Harry Houdini and Jack Daniels, this show tackled them all with gore, comedy, and even professionals and guests providing not just commentary, but cgi displays on HOW each death happened, (The late Charlie Murphy even giving a very funny commentary on 70s culture during a segment involving Lawn Darts)

With a lot of the stupid acts going on in the world and some of the more stressful times, I think we ALL could use a bit of a laugh and I think now would be a great time to bring 1000 ways to Die back on the air!

Spike TV may no longer exist (having become the Paramount Network at the beginning of 2018), but there are other channels that this show could be a good fit on!

HBO, Comedy Central, Netflix, Adult Swim, AMC.... Heck, even the Paramount Network!

My goal with this petition is to show that there is still a large fanbase for the show and to send it to some of the people at the top of the TV food chain and see if maybe we can't get the show brought back or even get a full 1000 Ways to Die DVD set with new deaths!

It worked for Firefly, it worked for Senses8, let's see if it can't work for 1000 Ways to Die!
