Witches of East End has been cancelled after two seasonsFacebook

Witches Of East End's fans had expressed their outrage when Lifetime cancelled the show after two seasons.

A petition was initiated by a fan of the show, to renew it for a third season, has garnered more than 85,000 signatures.

Madchen Amick, who plays Wendy Beauchamp in the supernatural drama, says the support from fans through social media to renew the series has been overwhelming .

"I was told directly from FOX that after the cancellation, if there was enough social media buzz, that at that point, they could shop the show around to other networks," Amick told Enstars. "And that they - both Lifetime and FOX - were very surprised that immediate reaction from the fans and how quickly they organised and made a really big buzz about how unhappy they were at that cancellation."

"They said that what's so unique about our show is that it was this immediate and passionate reaction, and they just immediately organised and just started to petition - well actually, they started to petition before we heard if we were picked up or not, they really were hoping that we were gonna get renewed," she said.

Hopes for show's renewal built up after Deadline reported that the A&E series Longmire might be picked up for a fourth season through Netflix.

Amick went on to detail why her series did not survive.

"People just don't sit down and watch shows live anymore. They DVR it, they stream it, they watch it on Netflix or iTunes," she said. "It's just unfortunate that a network only makes their profit off of live viewership because their hands are tied by advertisers. They may believe in the show and want it to continue, but they just unfortunately can't afford it."
