It's been said that we are in the golden age of television because of the sheer volume, variety and availability of programming on broadcast networks, cable and streaming services. And yet, TV fans still must suffer through the stress of waiting for their favorite shows to be renewed and the consequent gut-punch of grief when they aren't.
Thanks to social media, fans have a direct line to show’s creators, writers and stars, and fans are fighting back.
If you think your favorite television characters have fun in front of the camera, then you haven't seen your favorite actors' lives behind it! Instagram is for more than just duck-lipped selfies and food pics, it's also become a place for actors to offer an inside look into the controlled chaos that is making a television show and how badass it can be.
On Thursday, Jensen Ackles tweeted picture to commemorate a big moment! Supernatural, the show that struggled for years in the ratings, began production on its 250th episode the same day season 12 premiered. He writes, "Day 1 of episode 250. Here's to all those who helped make it happen. What a ride it has, and continues to be. Cheers... #spnfamily."
