Cable network FEARnet has licensed the devil-themed comedy-drama in order to air the 31 episodes produced in the show's two-season run on The CW. In addition, FEARnet will produce and air a reunion special featuring several of the actors and crew involved with the show.
As first reported by Deadline, the basis of pick-up -- FEARnet's first off-network deal -- is the rather rabid community of fans devoted to "Reaper." Those fans are still out there nearly four years after The CW canceled the show in 2009.
"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," FEARnet VP of programming and network operations Sarah Shannon said in a statement.
Following its FEARnet debut on June 4, "Reaper" will air Tuesdays at 9pm on the channel,
