If you were a fan of the 2007 ABC series Pushing Daisies, then it’s time to rejoice! Even after its unfair cancelation by ABC, it looks like the series is coming back in another form.
Pushing Daisies show creator Bryan Fuller has announced that he’s hoping to bring the cast back for a project or two.
Fuller states in the 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.”
Additionally, Fuller said that some sort of revival is also on its way: “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.”
We’re hoping that they’ll be able to get the full cast to return, which includes Lee Pace, Kristen Chenoweth, Anna Friel, Ellen Greene, Chi McBride, Swoosie Kurtz, and maybe even Jim Dale as the narrator.
Pushing Daisies only lasted two seasons before it was canceled by ABC, having been affected by the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. The first season only completed nine episodes because of the strike, the last of which Fuller had changed to serve as a season cliffhanger.
In its run on television, Pushing Daisies was nominated for 17 Emmy Awards, of which they won seven, including Chenoweth’s Outstanding Supporting Actress in a comedy series win.
