Fans Quest to ‘Save Our Seeker’

Variety advert funded by LotS fans

Recently Karen Méndez of IBG Inc. contacted me about the Legend of the Seeker renewal campaign. She is co-organizing efforts to bring about season 3 of this ABC series based on Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth book series. I personally love the show; it is beautifully filmed in New Zealand and has an excellent cast. It would be a shame to see it cancelled after only two seasons. Check it out if you like fantasy epics like me. The Save Our Seeker campaign gathered enough funds for advertising in top industry magazines Variety and The Hollywood Reporter– a feat that any TV show follower who’s been in a fan-driven movement can appreciate. The campaign is now bent on making sure as many public libraries as possible have the Legend of the Seeker DVDs. Their DVD campaign will end on May 30, so donate now. If you’re already a fan, there’s no confession necessary.

Here’s what Méndez said:

To date, we’ve published the two ads. There’s also a wide range of other campaigns in conjunction from fans coming together trying to do anything and everything to save our seeker. We email and snail mail to various networks, as well as ABC/Disney. We also have significant ‘Legend of the Seeker’ related items sent in, along with the letters.

One of the biggest boosts we at “Save Our Seeker” have had has been the support of Terry Goodkind, best selling author of the ‘Sword of Truth’ book series which the show is based on. He has graciously offered to collaborate with the “Save Our Seeker” campaign and we are currently working with him to launch a new campaign in the next day or so.

The season finale is [this] week and we hope to change our current situation to an announcement of ‘Legend of the Seeker’ being picked up for a third season.

All of us Legend of the Seeker fans wish the campaign every success. We’d love to continue the adventures of Seeker Richard Cypher, Mother Confessor Kahlan, Mord Sith Cara, and Wizard of the First Order Zeddicus. Find a way to support the campaign- its website SaveOurSeeker.com has several ideas on how to do this.

  1. Thank you so much for supporting our efforts and writing this article.
    We at “Save Our Seeker” have officially launched our next campaign project in collaboration with Terry Goodkind. Check it out here: http://www.saveourseeker.com/current.html

    ‘Legend of the Seeker’ truly deserves to continue it’s epic story. Fans worldwide stand behind it and fully support the show and it’s wonderful cast and crew.

    Here’s to a season 3!

    Cheers and thank you.

  2. As much as I loved all the syndicated fantasy shows from the late 90’s early 2000’s, I’m scared to get into this one. They’ll probably cancel as soon as I do.

    …Isn’t Charisma Carpenter in this?

    • She had a guest role. You should watch! At least the series has 2 seasons- if the worst happens, you’ll have the books for closure. I bet you’ll love the costumes. 🙂

    This is a great article. With people like Karen involved, it’s no wonder why this campaign has gotten such exposure in such a short amount of time.

    Cool article. I am involved with the efforts to get Legend of the Seeker back on the air. I am organizing a rally in Los Angeles to accomplish that. http://laseekerrally.wordpress.com.

  5. Do these campaigns work? Maybe. Sometimes. It got the original Star Trek a third season.

    Here is our take on season two with lots of pics and possibly some wit if you are interested; liking the good and shedding light on what we went wrong with a sense of humor:

    • So far no good news on the Seeker. I read your review. While I didn’t find season 2 as complicated as you did (granted I mostly watched back to back) it was a funny take on the show.
