As much as the series is great people may desire it to continue forever that may not be the best thing to happen. I mean as good as the writers may be at making good episodes it is unrealistic for them to make the episodes to the same standard of quality if the series goes on forever as no matter how skilled the staff may be they would likely begin to either tire from the series or run out of ideas for well written episodes.
I mean having seen a lot of different shows there is little good in having a show extended further than it's supposed to be for both fans and the staff (No I will not list any names for the shows in question)
I love this show, but is this petition really necessary? Whether the show ends or continues after it's fifth Season is up to the Creniverse or CN. Whoever started this petition should've known that. I can understand starting a petition of stop CN from cancelling the show for no good reason (thus ending it on a cliffhanger with unresolved plot points), but starting one for keeping the show going when no one announced whether the show will end or continue after season 5, especially since we just started Season 4, is kinda... What's the word I'm lookig for?
Has the person who made the petition not learned from Teen Titans, Thundercats 2012, Beware the Batman, and Young Justice? CN doesn't care what fans think as long as they get money, like Lenhi said just watch the show and buy the merchandise CN won't let you know exists. Besides, there's no need to worry about the show, when it ends we'll cry, some will be overdramatic, and we'll move on while still remembering Steven Universe
The show will likely continue on as adventure time. The show has a big fan base and does very well with the merch so it'll probably go past season 5. Just remember that when they get renewed they get renewed for 52 ep seasons so that's why they did two seasons.
I think the reason he's doing it now is so the show has a better chance of getting picked up again if it does get cancelled. Remember that the crew works at a fast pace to the point where when we were watching warp tour they were writing log date or when we were watching jail break they were writing earthlings. They can do it so the show keeps going on production.
Is the petition a kickstarter? does the petition bring in ANY amount of funding for SU?
It doesn't. petitions are worthless. Do people honestly think the executives at Cartoon Network are oblivious to SU's popularity?
They aren't. if Steven Universe gets cancelled after it's fifth season (very likely), it won't be because "Teen Titans Go! is cancer" or something stupid like that. Steven Universe will be cancelled because of the lack of TV viewing profits and excessive spending on the part of the Crewniverse. Basic Economics.
Steven Universe is a pretty beautiful looking and sounding show, but that doesn't come cheap- not at all. the animation budget is incredibly costly, and the celebrity voice actors suck up a ton of money too. Low ratings, Needlessly expensive- Pretty much the reason ZIM got cancelled. I'll admit, I'm part of the problem- I watch the leaked episodes online 'cause I have to work over 6:00 when the episode airs, and I'd rather not be spoiled ahead of time. and I'm fine with that. If the show ends, it's not the end of the world. Sugar pretty much confirmed most of the loose ends of the story will be wrapped up by season 5 anyways. if it ends, it ends, and no amount of petitioning will change that.
