Warrior Nun: Spamming, Kicking, and Screaming revival efforts worked but sets a bad precedent

Slow clap..

Congratulations to all of my Warrior Nun stans/trolls. It appears that your “campaign” to save your scarcely watched show may have worked.

The following message came down on social media

Today I’m happy to officially report that because of your combined voices, passion and amazing efforts – #WarriorNun will return and is going to be more EPIC than you could imagine. More details to come! SOON! Thank-you!!

We have to think that EPIC will be the new streamer after Netflix dumped the show last season.

Listen, fans do deserve the credit. It would be hypocritical of me to not recognize this effort the night after complaining that Gotham Knights never got a fair shake (story HERE).

But they did it in the laziest way possible.

Warrior Nun social media pushed into the threads of other shows, where its own fans were looking for information and to converse with other viewers of their shows. Mrs. Davis, another program that happened to feature a nun, was the prime example of that (story HERE). Sadly, it looks like we’ve seen the last of that Betty Gilpin vehicle.

This means that whenever another fan base doesn’t get their way, they’ll do the same thing. We’ll tolerate it because it will inflate our social media metrics, but its not organic.

The better way is “The Our Flag Means Death” approach. Or even the recent SWAT campaign. They actually involved an argument about why those shows should be saved.

But what works, works. Congratulations again to you Warrior Nun stans, and I can’t wait to see what’s up your sleeve next after EPIC cancels you again after your next campaign.
