Were you a fan of Pushing Daisies, the 2007 ABC series that was canceled prematurely in part due to the 2007-2008 writers strike? If so, there may be some hope to rejoice.
Creator of Pushing Daisies Bryan Fuller announced that he is hoping to bring the entire cast back together for a couple of projects. Fuller states in his interview, “I’ve had conversations very recently with Barry Sonnenfeld about financing a film, and with Kristin Chenoweth and Warner Brothers about developing a stage musical.” In addition, he also spoke of a Pushing Daisies return of sorts, “We’re working on something that is definitely a Pushing Daisies revival, and the idea would be to have as many cast as we can to participate in it.”
Pushing Daisies only lasted two seasons before it’s early cancellation by ABC, but managed to be nominated for 17 Emmy Awards (winning seven) before it’s ultimate demise.
I was a fan of the series and hated how early it was cancelled. Rather than a return to TV or a film, I myself am hoping for maybe a Netflix series, not unlike what was done with Arrested Development. This would definitely allow more creative license and of course binge watching at it’s best.
