It's aliiive! (For now.)

Despite what you may have heard, Reaper is not dead, undead, a zombie or otherwise shuffling off this mortal coil. After getting a few panicky emails (and bless you for caring about good TV!), I checked with the CW, and Reaper's rep tells me, "The show isn't airing, because we are premiering our new show Crowned, but it definitely has not been canceled. It will be back in the New Year."

Inside sources close to the show also confirm to me that "no decision has been made yet" regarding the show's longevity. Ten to twelve episodes were set to be produced. Eight episodes have aired.

Here's hoping it's true that Reaper will return! 'Cause I, for one, happen to think Reaper is just about the most watchable thing on the good ol' See Dub these days, and I highly recommend you check it out.

Also, I've seen the first episode of Crowned and can tell you it's exactly what you think it is: harmless, flavorless reality sludge with the sole purpose of trying to fill the impeding void of scripted programming due to that dreaded S-word.
