A campaign has been created on Change.Org to have our time-travelling duo return for more shows at next year’s HHN28.
The petition which is addressed to Thomas Williams the CEO of USF makes a compelling argument, it reads:
The Bill and Ted Excellent Adventure show has been a staple of Halloween Horror Nights! Not only has the show grown a fan base of thousands of people, but has created traditions, memories, reunions, laughter, and much more! Bill and Ted has also provided in a sense a “cool down” or desensitizing atmosphere for many. The body produces adrenaline when we get scared, henceforth the human mind and body becomes hypervigilant; the Bill and Ted show provides an escape from the adrenaline and hypervigilance.
Society is always changing; for the good and the bad; Vegas for example, Bill and Ted was able to touch upon it that not only showed tribute to the lives taken, but helps make light of the dark; also while refreshingly being the one true redeeming stab at pop culture from year to year. The signatures speak for themselves for the fan base and income brought in for the Bill and Ted show!
A new campaign Facebook Group has been created, along with petition specific T-Shirts all to help spread the word, they can be found here. The petition, which has over 1200 signatories, believes that every time 500 people sign the list it gets emailed to Universal, so the purpose of the petition is being heard by the very top of the organization.
Right now the future is looking bleak for our pair of time-travelling dudes. Back in 2013 HHN Hollywood cancelled their show mid-run due to a small number of complaints, with the show never returning to the West Coast. Over in Orlando with the sheer amount of construction that is rumored to be beginning soon and the fact that Universal have already said that last year was the final year it is hard for us to see a way through them.
It was strongly rumored that their run of shows was to actually have ended last year on their 25th. It was rumored that Art and Design along with a number of current and past Bill and Ted collaborators managed to persuade Park Management to bring it back for one last run which was this year’s show at HHN27.
Will Bill and Ted return for HHN28? Will this group #savebillandted? Let us know in the comments whether you would want them back for 2018…
