*Despite Jill Scott’s “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” being something like a hit to some, the show kind of fizzled off of HBO due to poor ratings. Now folks are trying to bring it back.

Supporters on social media networks are petitioning for the show’s comeback.

The series, based on the novels by the late Alexander McCall Smith, focuses on the story of a detective agency opened by Mma Ramotswe and her courtship with the mechanic Mr. JLB Matekoni.  Scott’s co-stars in the show included Anika Noni Rose, Lucian Msamati and Desmond Dube.

So fans aren’t buying the “poor ratings” banter and are moving forward with the push to revive the series in one way or another, according to movie site Shadow and Act. There were talks in the past to bring it back in a two part movie format. But nothing has been finalized.

If the power of the fan and social media networking work their magic, the show could be back on sooner than later.
