Our Flag Means Death: David Jenkins Honors "Renew As A Crew" Campaign

Our Flag Means Death series creator David Jenkins shared a message for the "Renew As A Crew" campaign & images of the Times Square billboard.

Never let it be said that Bleeding Cool isn't willing to throw as much support as it can behind a passionate fanbase looking to save their favorite show. We've seen it in the past in some very big ways from fans of Lucifer and Warrior Nun, who orchestrated prolonged campaigns to make sure that their voices wouldn't be ignored. And that is very much the case right now with the fanbase behind series creator-showrunner David Jenkins, Emmy-nominated executive producer & star Taika Waititi, and Emmy-nominated executive producer Garrett Basch's Rhys Darby-starring Our Flag Means Death. The ongoing "Renew as a Crew" campaign continues to get serious attention – with the petition to "Renew Our Flag Means Death" currently at 71,000+ signees & growing, as well as funds raised for billboards and other displays in key areas. But it's the Times Square ad that's been grabbing a whole lot of headlines heading into the weekend. Now, Jenkins is sharing some looks at the signage – as well as some of the fans to help make it happen – in a heartfelt post to the viewers who refuse to let OFMD sail off into the sunset.

"Hi to my friends (If you rent a billboard, a truck, and a plane, you're officially my friends. Sorry you're stuck with me)," Jenkins began the caption of his most recent post. "This is just to say that we are all in pleasant shock (writers, cast, producers, executives) by this outpouring of love and support. Personally, I think any network would do well to harness this passionate fanbase, but that's way above my pay grade. @netflix @amazonstudios @appletv We're all ready and standing by to make a third season and beyond if it interests you." The series creator continued, "And if this ends up truly being the end, please know how much we appreciate this magnificent send-off. I will serve this community for the rest of my career. You are truly the kindest and most magical group of fans imaginable. It goes beyond dedication. We've written our names on one another in permanent ink."

Here's a look back at what Jenkins had to share about the news via an Instagram post that went live the same day that the news of the show's cancellation was released:

In addition to Darby and Waititi, the second season featured returning cast members Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Matthew Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O'Neill, David Fane, Samba Schutte, Nat Faxon, and Leslie Jones. In addition, Ruibo Qian, Madeleine Sami, Anapela Polataivao, and Erroll Shand, and guest stars Minnie Driver and Bronson Pinchot also joined the cast as recurring guest stars. Max's Our Flag Means Death is executive produced by Academy Award-winner Taika Waititi, alongside creator-showrunner David Jenkins. In addition to his duties as showrunner, Jenkins directed the first two episodes of season two. Garrett Basch, Dan Halsted, Adam Stein, and Antoine Douaihy also serve as executive producers.
