I only wish that it would come back full time.Â 🙁
Â There’s good news for those of us who were dismayed at the cancellation of “Dead Like Me.” The dark comedy about the trials and tribulations of a group of grim reapers may come back to life — briefly, at least.
“Dead Like Me,” the popular Showtime television series starring Mandy Patinkin and Ellen Muth, is returning as a made-for-DVD movie. MGM told Moviehole.com that Stephen Herek (“The Mighty Ducks”) will direct the new film. There’s no word yet on who’ll be starring in the film — but hopefully they’ll revive the original cast.
The series, which makes bizarre death an art form, centers on George (Muth), a young woman killed by a toilet seat from outer space and forced to work as a grim reaper. Led by a reaper named Rube (Patinkin), she and an assortment of other eccentric characters are sent to reap the souls of the ill-fated.
I really loved this show.Â Showtime pulled it way too fast.
