The "Sweet/Vicious" Team Wants You To Help Save It And Here's How

"Staying loud and staying vocal and continuing to say people want the show is going to be our best chance at this."

At the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, the producers of the series offered a glimmer of hope that Sweet/Vicious could return! Executive producer Stacey Sher said on a panel with the creative team and cast that four studios are interested in making more episodes, they just need a network to air them.

"Netflix has a page where you can request what you want to see on Netflix. Spam that page," advised creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who was also on the panel with Sher, showrunner Amanda Lasher, and stars Taylor Dearden, Eliza Bennett, and Aisha Dee.

"Just stay vocal and tweeting to the networks," Robinson said. "I think those optics matter and your voices on social media, as the industry changes and grows, it matters more than ratings. I think staying loud and staying vocal and continuing to say people want the show is going to be our best chance at this."

And the tweets started rolling in from fans who want to see more of the series that explored campus rape.

But should a revival not come to pass and Sweet/Vicious retains its canceled-too-soon badge of honor, Robinson doesn't want anyone who relates to the experiences the show documented to feel defeated by its cancellation.

"Looking at the cancellation of our show, it is easy to feel like maybe your story doesn't matter and that could not be more false," Robinson said. "Shows get canceled for reasons that, literally, have nothing to do with the show. That is what happened here. Unfortunately our show is about something extremely important. The disconnect between the business and the heart sucks.

"I would also say to the fans and to anyone that has dealt with any kind of trauma ... that you are valid and that you are heard," Robinson said. "Your stories matter so much and Sweet/Vicious or not, I'm not going to stop telling those stories and I'm not going to stop fighting to tell those stories and neither is any woman on this stage."
