The CW show Legends of Tomorrow has been canceled, and fans are not happy. They’ve taken to Twitter to express their frustration over the cancelation and their wish to reverse it, banding around the hashtag #SaveLegendsOfTomorrow.

Among their complaints are lack of closure and the extinction of OG Arrowverse character Sara Lance, whose televised existence depended on the series. Legends of Tomorrow aired for seven seasons to variable reviews and ratings, although it cultivated a devoted fanbase.

Some fans are urging streaming services to pick up the series, as they have done to other canceled favorites like Community. HBO Max, which already has the show’s streaming rights, appears to be receiving the majority of pleas.

Co-showrunner Keto Shimizu broke the sad news on April 29:

The CW has let us know that there will be no season 8 of #LegendsOfTomorrow. We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.

She also thanked the fans:

Your love and passion for our strange band of misfits has made every break, every script, every daily, every cut, and every mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a place on the Waverider.

Legends of Tomorrow wasn’t the only DC-inspired CW show canceled that day. Batwoman got the axe after three seasons. Predictably, #SaveBatwoman has its own following on Twitter.

Whether or not the respective campaigns change anything, we appreciate the fans’ gumption.
