Reaper is a great show.Â A really great show.Â If you aren’t watching Reaper, you’re missing out on the next best thing to a series that is turning into the next Buffy the Vampire Slayer.Â There are obviously a lot of people not watching the show, as the CW series continues to go into the toilet.Â This would certainly spell the end of the series, had ABC Studios not thought otherwise.
Sources said show producer ABC Studios is in talks with CW affiliate stations about continuing “Reaper” as a syndicated series for Sunday night.
So when the network recently decided to give Sunday night back to its affiliates, they started preliminary conversations with ABC Studios about possibly continuing the show with original episodes.
Sources said that ABC Studios also is exploring a possible afterlife for the cult series on cable.
Both of these options are long shots.Â While show star and hottie Missy Peregrym are both available should the show return, Tyler Labine, who plays Sock, is already signed for a new comedy on Fox for next year.
While I would love the series to continue to infinity and beyond, I think the writing is on the wall.Â Oh well, at least we’ll have the good memories and the reruns on my TiVo.
