The wounds are still fresh from Netflix’s decision to cancel Daredevil after three seasons and its fanbase are fighting tooth and nail to bring it back from the dead with the Daredevil petition!
The fanbase has created a grassroots campaign by sending photos of napkins, emails, tweets to the powers that be at Disney to convince them to bring the show back with the cast and crew intact.
In the past week, this little passion project got some big names to help out. Vincent D’Onofrio showed his support on Twitter:

At the ACE Comic Con in Arizona. Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox gave his stamp of approval:
We can't express how grateful we are to #CharlieCox for being so kind to us today AND repping the #SaveDaredevil campaign during his @ACEcomiccon panel! Haven't signed the petition yet? You can find the link to that and more at https://t.co/KNPGEPZYki. pic.twitter.com/liNf84ht7T

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Young Justice, Lucifer, to name a few have all had been cancelled until fan demand on social media forced the networks’ hands to bring them back.
Now, those shows have new homes. NBC saved B99, Lucifer has left FOX for Netflix (Season 4 is coming this year) and Cartoon Network is kicking themselves for cancelling Young Justice (apparently toy sales matter more than quality storytelling), until the DC Universe service brought it back for its long-awaited third season.
