And so it has begun. Legend of the Seeker fans are out to save their favorite show, which is apparently on the very edge of cancellation after just two seasons on the air. There's nothing official yet, actually, but the usually reliable Michael Ausiello reported the other day on his Entertainment Weekly blog, The Ausiello Files, that the powers that be are ready to put a sword in the cult-favorite fantasy show that stars Bridget Regan, Craig Horner, Bruce Spence, and Tabrett Bethell.
Ausiello (and co-writer Andy Patrick) reported hearing from "multiple sources" that the series, produced by ABC Studios and airing in first-run syndication, would not return because its largest customer, Tribune Station Group, had dropped it in too many markets to make the production costsviable. Ausiello also reported that ABC Studios attempted to find a home for Legend of the Seeker at other networks -- Syfy later confirming this -- but no one bit, thereby sealing its fate.
Kahlan and Richard would never give up the fight, of course, and Legend of the Seeker fans are kindred spirits and a hardy lot. So, anyone interested in helping the show secure a third season can do their part by signing an online fan petition at PetitionSpot, purchasing advertising in a trade publication (thoughts on that here), and by writing to ABC Studios executives at:

Remember, as Zedd once said -- in one of the Terry Goodkind novels on which Legend of the Seeker is based -- "Nothing is every easy."
