Bad news (cancelled)

Netflix series, premiering Friday December 16th 2016. Jason plays Dr. Hunter (Hap), who researches near death experiences (NDE). I don't know how to explain this, watch it yourselves.

Oh, that's a real shame, I wanted to see what happens, it was such a weird story. :-(

Jason seems to have quite a bit of bad luck with series having no sequels.

A petition to save it.

Probably won't change Netflix's mind, but it can't hurt either.

I signed the petition (probably won’t do much good - but shows like the Expanse and Lucifer are having luck with fan based advocacy!).

There are some theories floating around that it's just a stunt that will be incorporated into season 3, to make it even more meta. I don't believe that, but the idea appeals to me. :D

Edit:
You have probably all seen this already on Twitter, but I thought it would be nice to have a link to Jasons farewell letter on the forum:

The PI dude killed the octopus because it was strangling OA - Which was the only way for her to get the information she needed - remember 27 seconds (I might be off on exactly how many seconds). The octopus even knew it was going to happen - watch again. I was sad.

I loved the show so I am not very happy with Netflix right now.

Well, we can hope. The show is so out there that I wouldn't be surprised.
