Lockwood & Co fan petition to save supernatural show reaches 9,000 signatures after Netflix’s Axes program after just one season
9,000 fans and counting have signed a petition in a desperate bid to save Netflix show Lockwood & Co.
The supernatural program was removed after just one series by the streaming platform.
But Netflix’s decision not to renew for a second season has drawn strong backlash, with thousands of viewers signing a petition to urge bosses not to pull the plug.
The petition gained momentum on Twitter, with fans expressing their fury over the decision to cancel the show under the hashtags #SaveLockwoodandCo and #LockwoodandCo.
One wrote: “This show deserves to have a longer runtime!” The adaptation was so perfect for the books and the acting was phenomenal. There are so few family shows today (especially on Netflix) that people can connect with; this one has so much story to tell.

‘Just an awesome show. Had everything. Ghostbusters/ Goonies/ Conjuring/ Harry Potter all in one show. This is a mistake,” another avid viewer added.
Netflix announced in a statement that the series “will not be returning for a second series.”
The statement read: ‘With a heavy heart, we announce that Lockwood & Co will not be returning for a second series…
