The news of Underground coming to an end shocked fans on Tuesday, as the program was one of the highest rated on television.
Now, the discussion has gone from upset of its ending, to what other networks could potentially pick the show up.
“Feel free to drop some hints to the networks/streaming services you want to pick up #Underground,” co-creator John Legend tweeted. “Show them who will be watching!”
Fans had their own suggestions from BET and OWN to AMC— even starting the hashtags #RenewUnderground and #PickupUnderground to persuade networks to make an offer.
After two successful seasons on WGN America, the period drama is coming to an end because the network was acquired by the Sinclair Group in a $3.9 billion deal. The right-leaning owners want more conservative programming, which apparently doesn’t include slave stories from the Underground Railroad— an integral part of American history.
Nonetheless, the networks it could land are endless. OWN with Greenleaf and Queen Sugar? AMC with The Walking Dead and Preacher? TNT with Major Crimes and The Last Ship?
