Dear Netflix: Revive 'The 4400'! sign now

Objective: Requesting that Netflix revive the cult classic television series as a Netflix Semi-Original Series.

In 2007, the world wept for the cancellation of the Emmy nominated series, The 4400. Let me tell you why. It had one of the most compelling premises ever: 4,400 people were abducted from different parts of the world, in different decades, altered with special abilities, and were returned all at once to Seattle, WA.

Sadly, the show was in the cross-hairs of the Writers Guild Strike. Flash forward to 2015 and we're living in a world where the entertainment industry is playing by a different, yet fascinating set of rules, where shows can scoop up Emmy's and Golden Globes without airing a single episode on television.

(ex. Netflix Originals: House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black).

The geniuses at Netflix saw which way the horse was running and decided to run with it, by presenting us with series under their Netflix Original umbrella. Just when we thought things couldn't get any sweeter, they revived 'Arrested Development' (a beloved series canceled too soon) and in a "wink-wink" way, dubbed it a Semi-Original series. See where I'm going with this? Well, according to a 2013 Variety.com article titled 'Arrested Development Draws Big Early Netflix Audience':

Exhibit A: "A range of 2-7% of total Netflix traffic on various networks were derived from “Arrested Development.” While that may seem tiny, weigh that range against the sheer volume of content on both Netflix and the Internet in general." Exhibit B: "Thirty-six percent of all devices connected to Netflix via one unspecified DSL network tracked by Procera on Sunday were watching at least part of one episode of “Arrested Development”–three times the number of those watching “House of Cards” in February." Exhibit C: "It’s not as simple as “Development” is a bigger draw than “Cards”; the latter series paved the way for the former, and “Arrested” brings in a much bigger built-in fan base given the cult following that has come in from its run on broadcast TV and DVD."

This is the era where cool shows can come back for any given reason and we the fans are okay with that! 'The X-Files', anyone? How about 'Twin Peaks'? The 4400 has the same opportunity. Us FANATICS are ready! With seasons 1-4 already on Netflix (Watch here), we are willing and able to pick up where the show left off and binge watch an entire season 5, 6, 7 to infinity. Many have tried before to get the show back, but please let the misery end with me. We the people know what we want and we want what we want when we want it. Try saying that five times fast. :)
