Twenty One Years and Waiting:
The Fans Keeping Sliders Alive
What do you do when your favorite TV show is canceled? You rally the fans together.
That's how Thomas Birchfield got over four thousand signatures on his petition.
It's something unfathomable for Sliders, a niche tv show that struggled to remain on the air throughout its run. How did a thrice-canceled show manage to live on two decades since its cliffhanger ending?
It took a lot of time.
The internet changed the course of Sliders' trajectory. It was a show on its way to obscurity but with the advent of social media and enthusiasm from the cast, things changed. Its scattered fans were brought together like never before. Now, it may be on the precipice of returning largely because of that fandom.
This is the story of how a niche television show struggled its way into the hearts of viewers and never let go.
