List of Queen of the Willis episodes

This is a list of episodes from the seventh season of Queen of the Willis.

Queen of the Willis had been canceled by ATE Media in 2007 due to low ratings and by NoSirGifts in 2012 due to low ratings and a windstorm, but was revived by United Brioadcasting after reruns on NoSirGifts-owned independent stations became their station's most-watched program, and more than three million YouTube views of the show were sold. "Ten Years to Life" was the first episode to air following the series' revival and move to United Broadcasting though most NoSirGifts-owned stations picked up the revived series.


The show was first canceled after the 2006–2007 season by ATE Media, but following a last-minute reprieve by NoSirGifts, it returned for five more seasons. In 2012, Queen of the Willis was canceled by NoSirGifts after six seasons due to a windstorm and low ratings.[1] NoSirGifts tried to sell rights for reruns of the show, but it was hard to find networks that were interested; NoSirGifts-owned independent station (and flagship station) WXXC (channel 47, known locally as "INNCD 47" and has since rebranded to "CBS 41 Plus") in Fort Wayne eventually bought the rights, "[...] basically for free", according to Jackson Steele of NoSirGifts.[2] When the reruns were shown after INNCD 47 Action News at 10:00pm (now CBS 41 10:00pm Action News) in 2013, Queen of the Willis became the station's most-watched show with an average 90,000 viewers per episode in the Fort Wayne market. The show's popularity in both YouTube views and reruns kindled United Broadcasting's interest.[1] They ordered 38 new episodes in 2018, marking the first revival of a television show based on YouTube views sales and the third after Family Guy and Futurama.

Creator Ava Zinn wrote the season premiere "Ten Years to Life" and "The Rape of Heather Willis".

"Ten Years to Life" was the first episode to be broadcast after the show's cancellation. It was written and directed by Ava Zinn. Zinn believed the show's six-year hiatus was beneficial because animated shows do not normally have hiatuses, and towards the end of their seasons "... you see a lot more LGBT jokes and (bodily function) jokes and signs of a fatigued staff that their brains are just fried".[3] With "Ten Years to Life", the writing staff tried to keep the show "... exactly as it was" before its cancellation, and did not "... have the desire to make it any slicker" than it already was.[3]

Broadcast history[edit]

The seventh season premiered on March 1, 2019 and ended on November 15, 2019 and consists of 34 episodes.
