(Newser) – Mission accomplished for Return to Order—kind of. "We promise not to make any more," an official Netflix account tweeted Thursday in response to the Christian group's petition demanding the company cancel Good Omens. Thing is, the show is made by Amazon Prime. Amazon also got in on the fun, per the Guardian. "Hey @netflix, we'll cancel Stranger Things if you cancel Good Omens," reads a tweet. Petition organizers got the message. "Due to an oversight by Return to Order staff, this petition originally listed Netflix as responsible for the offensive series," the group's appeal now reads. "We regret the mistake, and the protests will be delivered to Amazon when the campaign is complete." The petition is holding steady at about 20,400 signatures. (Read more TV shows stories.)
