FEARNet resurrects 'Reaper,' kinda
The CW's cult favorite supernatural dramedy "Reaper" is returning to the small screen. Sorry, "Reaper" fans, but there won't be new episodes.
Instead, FEARNet has acquired the 31 episodes of "Reaper" and will air them starting on Tuesday, June 4 at 9 p.m. leading into the return of "Holliston."
OK. Fine. There will be *some* new content. FEARNet has recruited stars Bret Harrison, Tyler Labine and Ray Wise to appear in a half-hour reunion special, reflecting on the unexpected afterlife -- pun intended -- popularity of the series which was cancelled after two low-rated seasons.
"'Reaper' is the first off-network series that we have licensed for FEARnet," blurbs Sarah Shannon, Vice President of Programming and Network Operations, FEARnet. "We are constantly looking for TV and cable properties that are still relevant, and that will resonate with our large base of fans, and 'Reaper' fits that criteria perfectly. Many 'Reaper' viewers feel the show left too early, so we hope that they will enjoy our plans for the series and our 'Reaper' Reunion special."
