Reaper “90%” likely to live on at Syfy



If you weren’t convinced that the renewal of Dollhouse for a second season was a sign of the apocalypse, now comes word via the Twitter account of one Jenny Wade (Nina) that Reaper is very likely going to live on … on Syfy.

Her first update came earlier today, which gave all Reaper fans a glimmer of hope:

will let u know what i know when i know it which will b any min now-but its lookin VERY happy 4Reaps! (could my agnt b n e slowr rite now?!)

Shortly after that came this:

ok, don’t get too excited, guys. i don’t wanna ruin christmas for ya. we’ll know by the end of the day, though. xo

As we all waited with anticipation (and through her apparent root canal or whatever the heck she had going on at the time — you’d have to see it), we got this message:

OKAY*deepbreath* y’all, from the most crdible sources i have, REAPER is a GO on SciFi. No official wrd til tomorrow, tho! lookin like 90%...

Could it really be true? I know a few people, who were once fans, who really don’t care if Reaper comes back or not. I, for one, want to at least see some resolution to the story. Even if we got one more season out of Reaper, I’d be happy. And, hopefully, there will be a place set aside a-la Life on Mars, where we’ll get a series finale episode out of the deal, no matter what happens.

Syfy seems like a really good place for Reaper to live on. It’ll get a fair chance there to prove its worth, and then some. I’m just wondering if we’ll get the whole team back, as the creators and Tyler Labine is signed on elsewhere. Hopefully we’ll really get that final word tomorrow. I’ll update via our Twitter feed if/when I see anything.

UPDATE: Perhaps now it’s not Syfy: soo…now hearing it’s NOT SciFi. i HATE hearing lil pieces ata time, as i’m sure u do, so til i c a contract, i will let it be.” Whatever the case, any activity in the direction of a renewal is good news.

I’ll wait for final word. I’m not a huge fan, but it’s a great fun show. Would go well with crazy Doctor Who. :)

Could we all just agree to keep calling it the SciFi Channel and hope they drop that goofy rebranding?

I’m with you tozmervo.

It actually makes sense. They will most likely make some good money selling the website, and now they can trademark the name. It’s still better than last years rumoured name change to “Beyond”.

Actually, I would have preferred Beyond, as at least is makes sense and is part of the English language. Unfortunately, Showtime already has a great channel named Beyond.

When I see SyFy, I call it seefee. And, it shall forever BE seefee to me, and that is just stupid.

It’s not Syfy.

Also, yes Tyler will be back, his contract mandates it. And the creators will still be involved, even with their new FOX contracts.

It’s confirmed that it’s neither SciFi or SpikeTV. All we know is that ABC/Disney sent out letters to the CW affiliates stating Reaper had been sold to cable, and that it (most likely) was not available for purchase.

Google “reaperdmv” if you want all the details.

I didn’t care for it much the first season, but most of the second season was good – like Buffy good. The Nina character was a great addition. I hope it sticks around.

June 3, 2009 at 9:33 AM

Yay!! I hope it comes back somewhere next season. Hopefully it will drive some other reality drivel off the screen and into a well deserved grave!

Hmmm a good idea for an episode right there. Sam, Andi, Sock, Ben, Nina have to send back the soul of a reality show producer. (Besides selling their soul to the Devil how else can you explain the “success” of reality shows?)

Could somebody please tell me how much of a Talent/Agent conversation about the future of a show we can believe?

If life in Hollywood is ANYTHING like “Entourage” then all this is… ah whaterver, who am I to judge. I wish you guys all the best that the show lives on even though I don’t watch it. Not my kind of cheese :-)

As per my experiences at two firms, you can believe Talent/Agent conversation more than almost any other sources. They’re the real dealmakers.

You should check out Reaper, even if it’s not your kind of “cheese.” You may be surprised at how genre-defying it is.
