The show will go hopefully go on.
Fans of the TV show Underground got some sad news last night when WGN announced that, after two seasons, they'd be saying goodbye to the program.
Fans didn't take the news lightly, some even calling for petitions to be made.

Executive producer John Legend chimed in on social media as well, saying that he wants the show to find a new home and encouraged fans of the series to let their service providers know "who will be watching."
Content wins. We're not reliant on a particular network to make great content. We're so proud of our show and the audience that supported!— John Legend (@johnlegend) May 30, 2017
Feel free to drop some hints to the networks/streaming services you want to pick up #Underground. Show them who will be watching!— John Legend (@johnlegend) May 30, 2017
Underground is a Civil War drama about the Underground Railroad. The show had garnered a very passionate, devoted fan base, which will hopefully propel the series to continue on another network in the future.
