Bring Haven to San Diego & New York Comic Cons
[updated 6.17.14] @Syfy has tweeted why Haven won't be at SDCC. Still no official word on NYCC.
@Syfy: "A: Unfortunately #Haven isn’t going to SDCC this year due to the nonstop production schedule required to film 26 episodes this year!"
Totally understandable. Maybe TPTB could do something for the fans online. A chat with the cast like they did last season, or a video message, or picts or something they can do in between filming. :)
Those who sign this petition would basically love to have more Haven in our lives. This is to show the cast & crew we love them and appreciate everything they are doing.
reason this petition began is because it was seen on social media that there
Syfy is not sending the cast to comic con. You can image our shock, surprise,
On January 28, 2014, Syfy's hit show Haven was renewed for a super-sized 5th season. Huge news for all fans of the supernatural show.
After word of the 26-episode season was announced, excitement for San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) and New York Comic Con (NYCC) (among others)began to build. Fans who have never been to comic con began planning to attend at least one, some both comic cons just to see their favorite Syfy show.
It's not that giving such a large order season to a show means the death knell for a show, we understand there are many factors that go into deciding whether a show is renewed. However, it is also understood that there is a chance that this summer/fall may be the last chance for fans of the show to interact with their favorite stars, writers, and producers. It is also understood that now more than ever it is important to not become complacent. Keeping the ratings up, keeping the old fans, and bringing in new fans is important.
Bringing Haven to the comic cons is not only for fans who can attend in person but also for fans online who cannot attend because of cost and/or distance. Haven is a show that has brought fans together from across the world. It is also an opportunity for fans to meet one another, share their love for the show with others, AND for new fans to discover the show.
We are not asking that Haven have a panel on the main stage but we are asking that Haven have some kind of presence at SDCC and NYCC. It could even be done off-site or virtually if necessary. There are a number of possibilities: Meet & Greet, Meetup, Autograph Signing, a Booth, join with Nerd Machine and do a panel, or do a livestream from Nova Scotia and let Haven fans gather at SDCC, something, anything really.
Haven deserves to be at the comic cons as much as any broadcast television show or hit movie. It is the show that defys odds and has the same kind of quality writing as the Walking Dead or Orphan Black.
Haven fans are tenacious and loyal as you probably know when we were awaiting news of the season 5 renewal. Well, here we are again, asking you to allow us to thank the "little show that could" and bring them to the Comic Cons.
We realize that you do not owe us anything and it may be too late to, but it would be really nice for fans to experience Haven somehow during the Comic Cons. Have we mentioned that a lot of things can be done virtually?
So please, we are respectfully asking you to bring Haven to at least SDCC and NYCC in some way, shape, or form.
And I'm not just posting and running, if I can help, then I am more than happy to do that.
On behalf of all Haven fans around the world,
