Can 'Sanditon' be saved for Season 2? Find out how fans are going to demand that 'Sanditon' comes back for a second season.

Fans of ‘Sanditon’ are making it clear they want season 2 with new stunt

The Sanditon fandom has been vocal about their desire to see the story they’ve fallen in love with get finished after they were told the show was canceled after only one season. The fandom, who has dubbed themselves the Sanditon Sisterhood has gone to impressive lengths to prove to any potential studios that there are fans of the show willing to support it.

Rather than dwindling in numbers as the months drag by with no news of a season 2 renewal, Sanditon fans have been growing in strength. Fans of the show from day one have become even more determined to help it, and new viewers are stumbling across the Sanditon, falling in love, and joining the fight to see the story get finished.

From coordinated mass email campaigns to unrelenting activity on social media hashtags (both #Sanditon & #SaveSanditon), the fans of Sanditon are proving they are large in numbers and some of the most loyal & dedicated around. Their latest media stunt has proven they’re willing to go to great lengths to see their show come back.

Massive sand mural

The fans of Sanditon want studios to know that it will be more than worth their while to give the show a second season. They hired sand & snow artist Simon Beck to create a massive sand mural on Brean beach, one of the filming locations from the show’s first season.

The mural is incredibly big (and beautiful), though it can be hard to tell until you see this drone footage that includes some of the volunteers assisting with the artwork. The temporary nature of the artwork feels a little symbolic considering the show itself was gone far too soon. 

The mural’s enormous scope feels symbolic as well – Sanditon has had an incredible impact & this artwork showcases it, as well as the sheer amount of effort fans are willing to undergo to get the series renewed.

Simon Beck

Beck, the artist commissioned to create this massive artwork, is known for creating beautiful images in both snow & sand. His works are always breathtakingly large, intricate, and gorgeous.

He usually calls his art either snow drawings or sand drawings respectively, and they’re often mesmerizing geometric patterns and shapes. As of January 23, Beck reported doing approximately 340 snow drawings alone.

Taking notice

The point of this #SaveSanditon sand art was to make studios aware of the Sanditon series if they weren’t already, as well as show them that the fandom is loud, dedicated, and large.

What better way to do this than to attract the attention of all the media?

So far, the plan appears to be working. Mainstream media outlets are writing about the sand art, and news of the act is spreading. Now, all we need is for a studio to think: “Hmm, maybe we should produce the second season?”

  • YES! Hopefully, the studios will take notice and give us what we want – a second series that Andrew Davies envisioned and that would make Jane Austen proud! She would never have ended her story this way as her protagonists always get a happy ever after ending after enduring a but of trouble at first.
