It's not the end of the "Millennium," after all is an article about a virtual season of the TV show Millennium that is organized by two male fans. For some reason it's treated as a novel concept that no one has thought of or done before.

From the start, the two knew they wanted to do something a bit more elaborate than the typical fan fiction site. They decided to set up the virtual season like a real TV series. Instead of short story-like narratives, they would produce polished scripts; and instead of posting whatever stories came their way, Asendorf and Owen would recruit volunteers whose fan fiction they liked to collaborate on a new season that continued story lines from the original series. Nine writers were quick to sign up; though they receive no compensation, many want the experience of being a staff writer — even on a make-believe series. “I haven’t done a lot of collaborative work before on my writing, and I wanted to see what it was like and learn how to make compromises and build off each other’s ideas,” says Brown University graduate student Kevin Patterson.

The article links to the Millennium Compendium fansite where the virutal season could be found in 1999.[1]
