DirecTV considering picking up Legend of the Seeker

July 7, 2010

Fans are reporting that DirecTV — responding to fan letter-writing campaigns — is considering picking up Legend of the Seeker. This fan blog picked up a story from All Voices (which runs very slow for me). I’ve seen a few mentions of this elsewhere.

So what to do now? Keep writing those letters. Not emails. Letters.

But understand also that, in order to watch the show, you may have to subscribe to DirecTV. They are a satellite dish company. They have great commercials but you need to understand what you’re getting into when you go with a satellite company.

DirecTV claims to serve over 50 million Americans and covers 94% of the local television market on their Website.


  1. Question– This offer is for producing and distributing a new season 3?
    Or is this for rerunning seasons 1 and 2?

  2. Directv would distribute. They can’t produce unless they partner up with disney. If disney still want the show, Directv and Disney could partner up. But Disney seem done with the series.. so STARZ is our best chance. Eric from Starz seems interested, Starz could buy the show from Disney and produce season 3 themselves.. also including more elements from the books 😀

  3. Starz is interested, too.

  4. I would like to write letters, can I get addresses?

  5. Sam Sticka – Remember that Starz aren’t interested as a company. A few individuals (Eric being one) are talking about the show, but we have to get the whole company interested that’s why we’re writing letters and calling them. Please see this thread for phone numbers and addresses Jamie: http://forums.legendoftheseeker.org/showthread.php/3460-DirecTV-and-Starz-are-interested-in-LEGEND-OF-THE-SEEKER

  6. I saw an article from Michael Ausiello from EW. He’s at it again trying to crush our hopes and dreams of a 3rd season of Seeker. He says the rumor that Starz is interested in picking up the show is “100% hogwash”. That goes to show how 100% out of touch he is with what’s going on.


  7. Starz isn’t interested in picking up the show as far as anyone in the industry is concerned. It will only be true if Starz makes an announcement, until then, even the programming department at Starz’ interest in the show means nothing.

  8. This is great for the US fans but what about all of us outside of the US? If Direct TV get it then how would we be able to watch it legally?

  9. if this isnt true im going to be overly pissed. i love the seeker. i say again were they left of in the last season was not a good spot. i really hope there is a season 3 legend of the seeker.

  10. Let’s not give in to what Ausiello said, OK? It’s just another rumor. He doesn’t know anything more definitive than we do.
