Welcome to 1943 – the girls are back! You can now watch a 30 second promo for Bomb Girls – Facing The Enemy, which will air on Global TV in Canada on March 27 at 8pm ET/PT. Make sure to tune in!
Global TV is also offering all previous Bomb Girls episodes online, which you can watch on their website (but unfortunately only in Canada).
This year, Bomb Girls producers Adrienne Mitchell and Janis Lundman will open the annual ‘Women Making Waves’ conference that’s organized by WIFTI (Women in Film and Television). Janis and Adrienne will be speaking about their career and Bomb Girls, and will be showing a sneak peek of Bomb Girls – Facing the Enemy at the WMW conference in Halifax at the end of March!
You can find more information on the WITFI website. Registration and ticket information on this and all of the great programming at Women Making Waves can be found here: www.wift-at.com/wmw.
Good news for the US Bomb Girls fans! As per the Bomb Girls USA Facebook page, the ladies of Victory Munitions are coming back for one last round in the movie Bomb Girls: Facing the Enemy. Keep following their Facebook page for information about the US premiere coming soon to ReelzChannel. (Best estimates are that the movie will air in late spring 2014, but no date has been confirmed.)
There’s no news whether the movie will be released on Netflix, ITV or on DVD, but there’s a good chance that all the foreign networks who have aired the previous episodes will also broadcast the movie.
It’s been an exciting weekend for Save Bomb Girls, which is why we’re bringing you our V-MAIL update a day late. We now have a total of 6,988 comments in our repository. Thank you to everyone who sent in V-MAIL, we can only repeat ourselves when we say: Keep it coming.
If you’d like to read all the comments, we have split the collection into parts of 1,000 comments each: part 1 – part 2 – part 3 – part 4 – part 5 – part 6 – part 7 – complete file
And remember: While it’s great news that we’re getting a Bomb Girls movie, it also means it’s the end of the show. For good. If you don’t want that to happen, help us by voicing your opinion about the show so that we can add your comment to our repository:
We are still amazed that the Save Bomb Girls website was featured last night in a segment of CBC’s news program “The National”. Thank you, CBC!
Leading up to yesterday’s Canadian Screen Awards, on Saturday CBC also covered Bomb Girls in a short piece called “Do awards matter for Canadian TV?”, which you can watch on the CBC website. Bomb Girls won two Canadian Screen Awards in 2014, one for Best Achievement in Casting (Lisa Parasyn and Jon Comerford for episode ‘Guests of Honour’) and Best Costume Design (Debra Hanson for episode ‘Party Line’).
We would like to thank everyone who turned up for the Twitter party yesterday and tweeted #SaveBombGirls to @netflix. It’s been absolutely amazing to see such a wonderful fan response, considering it’s been almost a year since we heard the staggering news of the cancellation.
It’s hard to tell how many tweets exactly ended up flooding the Netflix Twitter account, but all the analytics we ran pointed to around 1,200 #SaveBombGirls tweets and retweets that were posted yesterday, including over 1,000 that were directed at @netflix. Your support has been incredible! Now let’s hope that Netflix received the message.
So, what’s next? The Bomb Girls movie, of course. Let’s be reminded that it might not even have happened, hadn’t it been for the tremendous fan support last year. And of course that’s not the end of it. Save Bomb Girls has more in store for you, including a special giveaway of merchandise and other prizes. Stay tuned!
