It was fantastic to have this article pop up on the computer first thing this morning. SyFyWire posted an in-depth interview with Project Blue Book producers David O’Leary and Sean Jablonski about the show’s cancellation, their efforts to find a new home, and how the fans are rallying with petitions, hashtag, and well, our love for the show.
There’s a key comment in the article that brings hope to us fans: “…the executive producers want the fans to know their self-started social media efforts are seen, and are very important right now. In particular, they say using the #SAVEBLUEBOOK on Twitter and Instagram are easy ways for networks to see overall fan engagement. And in the current state of show-saving initiatives, petitions are proving to be an effective “at a glance” for executives to see large numbers of fandoms coalesce around properties. And Project Blue Book has its own fan-started petition already on Change.org the pair have seen and appreciate greatly.
And yes, they do plan to #FindQuinn (Michael Malarkey). “He’s an integral part of the show,” said Jablonski.
Season 3 is already ‘fleshed out’, and Jablonski added, ‘we’ve also talked through Season 4. The characters are so great. I could see a version of a book, of a graphic novel, or like a smaller Quibi type version that investigates certain cases.”
