An online petition started by one fan has garnered over 2500 signatures on Change.Og as of Thursday as staunch Queen Sono fans try to push Netflix to change its mind on cancelling the series staring their fav, Pearl Thusi.
Pearl Thusi is also hopeful the petition will influence Netflix in renewing its contract with her.
Nexflix cancelled Queen Sono season 2 production despite revelations that the show was pulling a favourable number of views.
Netflix argued they were forced by Covid-19 effects to shelve the show.
Pearl Thusi is also pushing the petition through her social media accounts.
She said she was so happy for the support her fans were showing her. She even pledged to follow back all who retweeted and signed the petition.
This goes to show how hopeful she is that the online petition may change Netflix’s decision on cancelling Queen Sono.
“This type of love is actually unbelievable. I didn’t expect to get so much support from fans of the show, ” she wrote on Twitter.
It is not yet clear at this point if Netflix will ever renew Queen Sono.
On their last statement when cancelling the show, Netflix had not shown any plans of bringing it back either.
When contacted by Daily Sun on a comment, Bongani Gxekwa from Netflix did not respond to the new development
