Enlisted creator Kevin Biegel isn’t taking cancellation for an answer.
While Fox will burn off the four remaining unaired episodes in June, studio Fox 21 is actively shopping the military comedy to other distributors, it has been confirmed.
While it’s a long shot, Biegel hopes a ratings uptick in those final episodes will make the cancelled series an attractive proposition to potential suitors, and ultimately land a second season.
Read the email he sent out to friends below, and stay turned for potential updates on this new twist in Enlisted‘s response to the Cancellation Axe:
Hello everyone whose email was ever in my inbox!
I’ll keep it short:
New episodes of Enlisted start this Sunday, June 1 at 7/6c on Fox.
There are 4 new episodes, and they will be on every Sunday in June with the finale airing on June 22.
These are the best four episodes we did. The episode airing June 1, our first one back, is one of our funniest, and the finale is one of the best pieces of TV I’ve ever been lucky enough to be a part of. Even more than that South Park episode with the mouse with the penis on its back, although that one was pretty good.
If we get even the slightest rating bump, it can help us live. This may seem like a fool’s errand, but even a little bit of hope is still hope. I love this show and believe in this show too much to give up.
If you can, spread the word about the show coming back. Forward this email to your friends, ask them to do the same. If anyone knows or knows of a Nielsen family, beg them to watch. Beg, really? That’s strong. How about ask?
I do hate asking favors, but I fear no one will know Enlisted is coming back on the air for the final 4. If we can get even a slightly decent rating we can show a new home that this show has a real fan base.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer,
