DrumHealthier movement continues despite possible Village on a Diet cancellation
“The production company informs me this is an early decision and it is still very possible it will be renewed for a second season, but it will probably be a few weeks until they would know with any certainty at all,” said Salvatore.
Laurie Case of Force Four Entertainment said CBC has not decided on the fate of the show on its network.
“The official story is that CBC hasn’t made a decision about Village on a Diet yet. There is still a very real possibility it will come back for season two, but they haven’t confirmed yet,” she said. “CBC has been clear with the producers that it still may come back. We will know in the next couple of weeks.”
Salvatore said despite this, the campaign to make Drumheller a healthier place continues to grow and work towards its goal. Its Facebook page is approaching 1,200 members, and it has completed its sixth fitness challenge, where 65 headed to the ski hill in Drumheller and went tobogganing last Saturday. Other challenges have included walking in the arena and yoga. This Monday night they will be heading to the bowling alley.
“It has been great to see the number of people getting involved, we want to continue the DrumHealthier movement” said Salvatore. “It is great that people continue to look at ways to improve their lifestyle, and we are going to continue with all the activities and challenges.”
He has posted a link on the group’s Facebook page to a petition to renew the second season of the show, where people can help send a message to CBC to keep the show.
