Bad news for “Reaper” fans — the show’s creators just signed a deal with a rival studio, so it looks like the show’s fate has been sealed.
“Reaper” creators/executive producers Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have inked a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.
Under the seven-figure pact, the duo will join a 20th TV series and develop projects for the studio.
Fazekas and Butters’ exclusive deal with 20th TV effectively seals the fate of their bubble CW series as it calls for them to leave “Reaper,” produced by ABC Studios, where the two had been based.
“Reaper” has been pretty good this season though with the late premiere date it was obvious that it was on the cutting block. Let’s just hope that Fazekas and Butters can wrap up the series properly instead of letting “Reaper” simply go dark. No one wants that.
