ABOUT REAPER:

Reaper is an American comedy-drama created by Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas.


The series focused on Sam Oliver, a Reaper who worked for the Devil by retrieving
souls that have escaped from Hell.

The series originally ran on the CW from September 25, 2007 to May 26, 2009. The
CW formally canceled the series but there were talks between ABC Studios to continue
the show in syndicated form as a Sunday night program, due to the CW returning
Sunday nights back to its affiliates. The official Reaper website confirmed on June 17,
2009 that there will be no third season, but there will be a comic book series and
possibly a cartoon.

Produced by ABC Television Studios and The Mark Gordon Company, Reaper aired
Tuesday nights at 8:00PM Eastern/7:00PM Central on the CW.

PREMISE:

Sam Oliver (Bret Harrison) lives


at home with his parents (Andrew
Airlie and Allison Hossack) and
brother in the Seattle area. He
had always wondered why his
mom and dad were so easy on
him, whether it was sports,
school, or career choices, and so
hard on his younger brother. Sam
dropped out of college ("It made
him sleepy", his Mom explains)
and took a dead-end job at the
Work Bench, a home-repair
superstore similar to Home
Depot but which also has Wal-
Mart and Best Buy features (Home Entertainment devices and other products such as
sporting goods). The location used for filming the pilot episode is familiar to Canadian
viewers as it strongly resembles a Canadian Tire store. He spent the rest of his time
hanging out, playing video games, and pining for his co-worker, Andi (Missy Peregrym).
On Sam's 21st birthday, his parents behaved very strangely, and Sam himself saw
hellish visions and experienced odd events. His father eventually claims that many
years ago, he was very sick, and in return for restoring his health, he and his wife
promised their firstborn child to the Devil (Ray Wise). Although the couple intended to
cheat the Devil by having no children, this plan went awry when Satan convinced their
doctor to lie and tell the couple that they could not conceive in exchange for wiping his
gambling debts clean. Sam was born shortly thereafter.

After informing him of his fate, the Devil explains to Sam that he must serve as his
bounty hunter (or "Reaper"), tracking down souls that have escaped from Hell and
sending them back using his new powers (which include telekinesis) and "vessels",
varied objects said to have been hand-made in the bowels of perdition by the iniquitous
and the vile. Vessels appear inside a long wooden box sent for Sam to open (with the
Italian inscription "Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate" ("Abandon all hope, ye who
enter here"), as was written on the entrance to Hell in Dante's Inferno), and are
specially designed for each job. Examples throughout the series have included a Dirt
Devil vacuum cleaner, a Taser gun, and a cigarette lighter.

Although Sam initially balks, Satan tells him that should he refuse, then Sam's mother's
soul is forfeit. Unwilling to sacrifice his mother, and convinced that he is doing good in
the world by tracking down evil souls, Sam accepts his fate. With the help of his slacker
friends Sock (Tyler Labine) and Ben (Rick Gonzalez), he begins his new life tracking
down the corrupted souls trying to escape their own eternal punishment.

PRODUCTION:

Reaper premiered on September 25, 2007 in the U.S., airing on Tuesday nights at
8:00PM Eastern/7:00PM Central on the CW, following Beauty and the Geek. The
series had a full 18 episode order for the 2007-2008 season, with 13 pre-strike
episodes and 5 post-strike episodes.

Reaper stopped airing new episodes after the tenth episode due to the industry-wide
2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike. It resumed new pre-strike episodes for three
weeks on Thursdays in March, and began airing post-strike episodes on April 22, 2008.

On May 12, 2008, Reaper was officially renewed for a 13-episode second season
which premiered on March 3, 2009.

On May 19, 2009, Reaper was officially cancelled by the CW. However, ABC Studios
was still in negotiations with CW affiliates to syndicate the show, or sell it to cable.

Tyler Labine who plays Sock posted on his Facebook account that Reaper is offically
cancelled and will not be returning.
