Warehouse 13: Myka and H.G. Are Cannon
Artie muttered to himself as he traipsed down aisle after aisle looking for his wayward team of miscreants. He’d call it “grumbling,” but he didn’t want to give Claudia the satisfaction. If he ever found her, that is.
“Just when I need my highly trained federal agents and their pet mascot to be where I need them for some…” He stopped abruptly at the sight of spilled dirt and an overturned brass urn. Pushing his glasses further up the bridge of his nose, he assessed what he could see — obviously there had been an incident with an artifact, and obviously his team was…
somewhere over there.
So Long, and Thanks for All The Fish
We may never know whether this campaign had any influence on the decision to give Warehouse 13 a final short season but we are incredibly proud of what this community of fans accomplished. You should be proud, too. We came together as fans to address a problem that many media professionals still fail to recognize as a real issue. Warehouse 13 fans are smart, savvy, loyal, and motivated — and thanks to your participation, we’ve sent that message to Syfy. Whether our efforts were acknowledged by the people making the decisions, they were noticed by the cast and crew. And that is awesome.
We are thrilled that the network and its parent companies decided to give the fans, cast, and crew the closure and finale that we all deserve. While perhaps not the outcome we had hoped for (another 5 seasons!), we are luckier than most fans in this situation, and we are all looking forward to what will surely be a thrilling conclusion to a wonderful show.
So where does that leave all of us? We hope you all continue to support original scripted programming and to think about the future of television. We also hope this campaign has raised awareness about new and alternative media distribution models and how technology is changing the way we engage programming, on our televisions and off.
Although we won’t be as active anymore, the blog, twitter and website will stay up, both as a resource and a platform for passing along any relevant information we think you should know. We will also leave the “tweeter” app up permanently to thank sponsors for supporting the show.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the writers, cast, crew, and producers of Warehouse 13 for creating such a remarkable show that is capable of bringing together this amazing community of people. The Renew campaign (and the data from our survey) only confirmed what we already knew as fans: Warehouse 13 fans are passionate about the show because it is fun and moving, because the characters are complex and fascinating and lovable, and because the premise celebrates so many ideas (and ideals) that we admire — intelligence, loyalty, friendships, and family (and really cool toys).
We would also like to take a moment to thank all of YOU. This campaign was not just the work of small group of people. Warehouse 13 fans are talented, generous, and dedicated, and this effort would not have been successful without the support of our entire community. Hopefully, after tweeting, completing surveys, making campaign posters, snagging, bagging, and nagging, and the promoting you all did, you are as proud of the results as we are.
A very special thanks goes to Michael Hinman, Jack Kenny, Eddie McClintock, Saul Rubinek, Aaron Ashmore, and Brent Spiner for helping raise awareness of the campaign.
Let’s all keep supporting the cast, crew, and our beloved Endless Wonder as long as we still have it around.
(Speaking of… did someone remember to fix the fish?)
