Even though the CW announced today that they're dropping Reaper, The Hollywood Reporter reports today that TALKS ARE STILL ON between ABC Studios, who produces the show, and CW local affiliates for a Sunday syndication of Season Three.  http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i4ac338fdce0587a71c0f60c8af5aed4f

Everybody please:

1) Write your CW local affiliate and ABC Studios, tell them there's a fanbase for REAPER. Addresses and links here.   Also below.
2) Go to the sites that talk about Reaper or are reporting that Reaper is cancelled, and post something like we've done here.

Look up your CW affiliate here. http://www.cwtv.com/stations
Also write to ABC Studios http://abc.go.com/site/contactus.html?lid=ABCCOMGlobalFooter&lpos=CONTACT

Encourage them to keep promoting the syndication of Reaper! International viewers, you should write to your affiliates/networks too! We'll keep updating here.

Possible email to your affiliate:
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that CW Affiliates may pick up a third season of Reaper to run Sunday nights. I'm here to say that we have a devoted fanbase here in the [your area] for this show. [Our local TV writer] has been a supporter in the past, and I co-run a fansite for Reaper and am in several fan groups that represent a broad and diverse fanbase. I'm mailing a letter to you with a petition signed by over 2,000 fans. Reaper can get ratings for Sunday night!

We've seen from all the articles about Dollhouse et al, fan voice will make a difference these days. Support this great show and our wonderful fandom! We've been called "rabid," "devoted," and "youthful." Now show them we mean business!

Thank you so much, you are awesome. We're already hearing people getting replies from their CW affiliates that they are considering this syndication deal, so everyone keep writing!

Hey aquila ~ try and see if you can't find your Regional Director. We seem to be getting some response there on a bigger scale.

I saw that on TWoP -- that was a fabulous response! I will definitely try that myself -- good idea.

And I think Bret Harrison owes you and catw some champagne, even if this doesn't work -- you guys are the bomb!

Don't forget to tell them that the show can survive without Sock, because some affiliates have the idea that Reaper can't go on without that character.

Body Politic wasn't picked up by The CW so we still have beautiful Jenny Wade on board. And we certainly hope to see more of Ray Wise and Bret Harrison, of course.

Yeah, kwy, we're hearing that Sock is a concern to the affiliates' decisions, so good to reassure them in your email. I feel bad for Jenny and her show, but happy if she can stay with Reaper!

I emailed both ABC and my local affiliate, and got something encouraging back from the programming director of the local CW!

Thanks for your email. Do you feel the same way if Tyler (Sock) leaves? Knowing that is really important since I consider him a key character (I am a big fan as well). No doubt about Ray Wise and Bret Harrision being the real keys..we are looking into this program and it is pretty much a decision that will be made at Disney based on how many stations they can sign up. We've offered to be one of them as long as there are no further cast changes or change in key behind the camera folks. Keep your fingers crossed and should we be able to keep the show I may call on you to send out viral messages to all your friends and anyone you think might like this show. We have to be able to sell it to stay on the air and that is where you viewers come in.

So that makes me happier, with a station actually pulling for the show to come back, at least in syndication!

That's almost exactly the same reply I got from the same person when I sent MY feedback!

We have had several responses from Chris Wolf, Regional Director. The people I've noticed here and at the DMV seem to be from the Virginia and Ohio areas. I think I'm going to try and find my Regional Director tonight. I recommend you guys trying to do the same.

Ah that explains it blue, Regional Director. I was wondering about that. Good advice.
