pan am ep3 abc 'Pan Am': Fans petitioning to save showWhile the future of ABC’s period drama “Pan Am” is still up in the air, fans of the show are already lobbying the network to extend the program.

A fan of the program started an online petition to save the ratings-challenged show. To date the petition has received nearly 2,500 signatures.

“[We] wish to show our eagerness for the show to be given a chance to prove itself. ‘Pan Am’ is a groundbreaking show as it uses a strong female ensemble cast to take us around the world, not only to entertain but to give us a look at the historical relevance of the 1960s,” the petition reads. “If the viewers are given enough time to engage in this continuing narrative we believe they will become loyal, long-term fans of the show.”

ABC offered no comment regarding the petition. They have previously announced the show will complete its initial order of 14 episodes before considering its future for the 2012-13 schedule.
