Bring Back The 4400!
Objective: Requesting that a leading network or streaming platform aid in reviving the cult classic series 'The 4400'.
In 2007, die-hard fans wept over the unexpected cancellation of The 4400; an Emmy nominated series that ran for 4 seasons on the USA Network (2004 - 2007). The show had one of the most compelling premises during that time: 4,400 people were abducted from different parts of the world, in different decades, altered with special abilities, and were ALL returned at the same time to Seattle Washington in present day. Not to mention, they hadn't aged a day since being abducted. Watch the trailer: Here
Intriguing, right?! Great premise paired with an all star cast. Just to name a few: Jacqueline McKenzie (Malignant [Dir. James Wan] & Netflix's Pine Gap), Academy Award Winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight + Marvel's Luke Cage) Patrick Flueger (NBC's Chicago P.D) and Laura Allen (Sundance TV's Hap and Leonard + FX's American Horror Story: Cult)
Sadly, The 4400 was in the cross-hairs of the 2007 Writers Guild Strike and resulted in a crushing season 4 cliffhanger finale that fans never recovered from. Flash forward and we're in an era where beloved classics or shows deemed gone-too-soon can be revived for any given reason. Gilmore Girls, anyone? How about The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development, Full(er) House, Will and Grace, and now, Murphy Brown! The 4400 has unfinished business and deserves its proper time in the light once again. Thinking big, it can even spawn off a "4400 universe" comprised of series/films; which will satisfy longtime fans and will usher in a new generation of viewers.
The cast and producers are supporting this campaign by way of signatures/personalized comments (at the foot of this page) along with their participation in Bring Back The 4400 efforts, such as: a call-to-action video, a cast reunion home video, as well as a trending Q&A with fans on Twitter. As a humble-brag, we even gained a petition signature and Twitter support of William Shatner!! His official signature timestamp and comment can be found below, as well.
In 2021, a reboot dubbed "4400" aired on the CW network to warm reviews from fans and critics, and was canceled after one season. Diehard fans of the original 2004 - 2007 series, and newcomers alike, took this is as another sign that a network/streaming platform should "Bring Back The 4400" and give it a proper ending. This can open up opportunities for a "4400 Cinematic Universe".
The think tank is open. Let's dive in.
