FEARnet's "REAPER" Reunion Special Airs Tuesday, May 28, at 9 pm ET, Giving Fans an Exclusive Look at the Series, Featuring Appearances by Ray Wise, Tyler Labine, Bret Harrison, and More!

Angie Greenup Hosts, with Additional Appearances by Ken Marino, Christine Willes, Rick Gonzalez and Series Creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 29, 2013 -- FEARnet's REAPER reunion special was shot on Wednesday, April 24, at the Medusa Lounge in Los Angeles. In attendance for the special - hosted by TV and web personality Angie Greenup - were series stars Ray Wise , Tyler Labine and Bret Harrison , as well as Rick Gonzalez , Ken Marino , Christine Willes and series creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas .

The reunion special will air on Tuesday, May 28, setting the stage for REAPER's FEARnet debut on Tuesday, June 4, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, as part of the Network's Twisted Comedy block, which also features the FEARnet original half-hour comedy series HOLLISTON. Additionally, the special will be available for viewing on the FEARnet website starting Friday, May 31st, and VOD on Saturday, June 1st. It will air again on the Network on Tuesday, June 4, at 8:30 p.m. ET. FEARnet has licensed both seasons of the hour-long series, for a complete 31 episode order.

Four years later, the wildly popular cult hit still enjoys a rabid fanbase - many of whom feel the series was cancelled much too soon. These same fans will be delighted to see their favorite stars brought together, once again, as the amiable cast openly discusses many behind-the-scenes anecdotes and stories from their time on set. The cast's favorite memories - such as Sock's lusty encounter with Gladys; the creators' insider info that comedic icon Louis C.K. originally auditioned for the part of the Devil; and whether or not the team would be open to a Kickstarter campaign to resurrect REAPER, are just a few of the things fans can expect to glean from the special.

"I'm so happy that FEARnet is doing this," said Ray Wise , who played the Devil on REAPER. "It really warms my heart having us all back together again."

The quirky series focuses on the life of Sam Oliver (Harrison), a college drop-out who, on his 21st birthday, learns that he now must work as a bounty hunter for the Devil (Wise), as part of a deal made many years ago when Sam's parents offered up their firstborn son in exchange for good health for the ailing father. Tyler Labine (TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL) and Rick Gonzalez (COACH CARTER) play Sam's slacker friends who help him in his new secret double-life of 'reaping' souls, using a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner, as well as other modern household items.

REAPER is a production of ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Company. The series was executive produced by Michele Fazekas (ED, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT), Tara Butters (ED, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT), Mark Gordon (GREY's ANATOMY, CRIMINAL MINDS), Deb Spera (CRIMINAL MINDS,) Tom Spezialy (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) and iconic filmmaker Kevin Smith (CLERKS, JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK), who also directed the pilot.
