FEARnet has picked up its first off-network series with ABC Studios' comedy Reaper, licensing both seasons of the hour-long series to add to its Tuesday night Twisted Comedy Block.

Reaper, which first aired on The CW from 2007-09, will debut on June 4 leading into the second season premiere of FEARnet's original comedy Holliston.

FEARnet will also produce a half-hour reunion special with some of the cast, including stars Bret Harrison, Tyler Labine and Ray Wise, returning to discuss the series.

"Reaper is the first off-network series that we have licensed for FEARnet. We are constantly looking for TV and cable properties that are still relevant, and that will resonate with our large base of fans, and Reaper fits that criteria perfectly," said Sarah Shannon, VP, programming and network operations, FEARnet. "Many Reaper viewers feel the show left too early, so we hope that they will enjoy our plans for the series and our Reaper reunion special."
