Dragon*Con 2013 Beckons to Legend of the Seeker Fans

August 26, 2013

If you were debating about whether to show your support for Legend of the Seeker at this year’s Dragon*Con in Atlanta, GA, stop hesitating. Just do it.

Dragon*Con is the largest fan-run science fiction and fantasy convention in the Southeastern United States. Heck, they’ll even tell you they are the largest in North America (well, some people will).

Everyone who is anyone (who won’t be at WorldCon) in Science Fiction and Fantasy will probably be at Dragon*Con (WorldCon is somewhat smaller).

So, enough bragging about WorldCon — I mean, Dragon*Con. This article is about Legend of the Seeker. Fandom for this beloved TV show has done some amazing things. We continue to recruit new allies in our campaign to find a new production company and distributor for the TV show (or maybe just to get a movie made).

Meanwhile, if you will be at Dragon*Con this August 30 through September 2, and you’d like to meet other fans of Legend of the Seeker, you can find out what activities are being organized at the Confessor and Seeker Society Forum.

You should also consider following the @seekerfans account on Twitter as I have Tweets going out all week. I’ll even retweet some interesting stuff if I see it.

Legend of the Seeker lost critical distribution support when the Tribune Company went bankrupt in 2010 and pulled the show from its TV stations. LOTS lost 1/3 of its North American market and ABC Studios was unable to persuade SyFy to pick up the show. Fans are hoping that someone else (like Netflix or Hulu) will step in bring the show back (or maybe make a movie).

Legend of the Seeker was a two-season TV adaptation of Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth novels.
