Sky Living? More like Sky Dying.

I'm furious. I'm devastated. My favourite show, a really important show to me, has been dropped by Sky Living.

Now, Sky Living have never been very good at bringing us Supernatural. It's been getting later and later every single year. Last year, we got season 8 in the summer, so close to when season 9 was due to air in the US.

When it first began, Supernatural was on ITV2, and we got to see it in the January after the US got it in the September. I can deal with that. I don't mind waiting a little as long as we get it in the end.

The announcement that the channel has dropped Supernatural has left a hole in my stomach. I got tears in my eyes when I thought about it not being on our TV any more or us not being able to buy the DVD (I know I can watch it online but it's not the same).

Sky Living haven't even given an excuse. Their decisions have made me so angry and upset but they can't even be bothered to explain why. Even if they did have a reason, there has to have been something they could have done to save it. Why couldn't they just continue airing it??

Sky Living says 'We understand fans of the show may be disappointed by this news and we want to reassure you that we appreciate your passion for TV, Sky Living and these shows in particular.' Yeah, I'm sure you do. That's why you're being so nonchalant about this.

They go on to say 'Please be assured that here at Sky Living we're committed to bringing you a fantastic line up of new shows in 2014'. I DON'T CARE ABOUT OTHER SHOWS I ONLY WANT SUPERNATURAL.

I have set up a petition here, so please sign it. I have to do something, and this is the only thing I could think of that would see the most light due to social media and the Internet.

I hope to God that this post will become null soon because another channel picks it up (I'm looking at you ITV2 - make up for dropping it last time you had it! Or maybe another channel might see how good the show is and save it for us. Please!)

Sky Living have just been taking the mick for years now. The Supernatural on Sky Living Facebook page would be almost hilarious if I wasn't so angry: it's so active during the airing of Supernatural in the UK and then the poster goes AWOL as soon as it ends. All of the UK fans are left hanging, wondering when the next season will grace our screens.

I seriously don't think they get it. It isn't just a show to me. I love it so much more than your average show. That's why it's such a devastating announcement.
