"Reaper" will be returning two weeks early? The devil, you say!
The CW announced Tuesday (Feb. 3) that it will premiere the second season of its supernatural drama "Reaper" on March 3, two weeks sooner than was originally announced. All 13 original episodes will air consecutively through the season finale on May 26.
"Reaper" will also be placed in the 8 p.m. ET/PT slot, which means that it won't get the lead-in from "90210" as previously planned. Instead, the teen soap will follow at 9 p.m., which will keep it clear from FOX's "American Idol" juggernaut.
The earlier premiere date also means that "Privileged" will have to vacate the Tuesday 8 p.m. time slot earlier, pushing its finale forward to Feb. 24. Fans craving more of judgmental Megan (JoAnna Garcia) can catch encore episodes on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. from Jan. 28-Feb. 18.
As previously announced, "America's Top Model" will premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. to complete The CW's midseason scheduling changes.
"Reaper" stars Bret Harrison as Sam, a guy who roped into service as the devil's (Ray Wise) bounty hunter for souls escaped from hell. He's aided by his friends Sock (Tyler Labine) and Ben (Rick Gonzalez) and distracted by his crush/budding relationship with Andi (Missy Peregrym).
When last we left Sam, he was struggling with some suspicions that his parents' involvement with the Devil is not what was previously explained. This season will likely answer questions about Sam's origins and the true nature of Sam's dad, while delving deeper into the mythology of God, demons, angels, Heaven and all that metaphysical stuff.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
