Dead Like Me Renewed For 2nd Season!

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Fans of Showtime's "Dead Like Me" will reap the benefits of another season of the show.

The darkly comic series about a teenager (Ellen Muth) who dies and then becomes a reaper in the afterlife has won a second season on the cable network. It will likely be on the air in summer 2004.

"This is an unqualified hit for us," says Robert Greenblatt, Showtime's president of entertainment. "This show portends great things for the future of Showtime, which we hope will become a home for truly original series."

"Dead Like Me" has substantially improved Showtime's ratings in the 10 p.m. Friday spot, typically scoring about 60 percent higher than previous inhabitants of the timeslot. (The network didn't release specific numbers.) The series also draws ratings about 45 percent higher than the network average for all of primetime.
"Dead Like Me" also stars Mandy Patinkin ("Chicago Hope"), Jasmine Guy ("A Different World") and Laura Harris ("24").

Woo-hoo!

This show alone almost makes it worthwhile to get Showtime. Now, if they'll only release the boxed set of Season 1...

I just started watching this show through the Showtime"IN DEMAND" channel my cable company just started. I watched one episode the other day, and in two days i've watched 14 episodes, which may be the entire first season. Its such a great little show. It seems very original(though i may be wrong on that) but everything about it is just awesome.
Can't wait for a second season, and a Season set on dvd.

Any truth to the rumor that Animal Planet was getting a spinoff show with that Pet Reaper kid?
