Pushing Daisies Cancellation Rumors

The Fate of Pushing Daisies Still Undetermined

The facts are these: Pushing Daisies has not been canceled. But it hasn't been renewed, either.

Rumors are flying like mad, but as of right now, nobody knows the ultimate fate of the whimsical show — not even the people working on it. "Every day we're hearing that we're canceled and then we hear that we're not," executive producer Bryan Fuller told The LA Times. "It's all rumors. Nothing official at all. We are in radio-silence land."

The show wrapped up production on its original 13-episode order on Thursday, and it's not on a tentative but unconfirmed ABC Winter schedule that's making the rounds. No new episodes have been ordered, but ABC also hasn't said it won't order more. There's even one rumor going around that the show could stay off the air for the rest of the year but return to ABC's schedule next Fall.

So, for the moment, we Daisies fans are in limbo. But there are a couple of campaigns organizing to save the show. To find out about them, just


  • Here's an online petition you can sign to tell ABC the show deserves another chance.
  • Several sites have set up various efforts to save the show, but this one looks to be the best organized at this point. They've raised more than $1,000 so far and are sending shipments of daisies to the ABC offices.
  • This site suggests various other things fans can do, including watching old episodes online and/or downloading them from iTunes.
  • And this site is taking a different approach, asking for fans to donate to different bee research/conservation groups (as a nod to Chuck's love of bees) and then write to ABC explaining that the donation is in support of Daisies.

Will any of these things help? Well, at the very least, they probably can't hurt. Have you done anything to help save Daisies? Why do you believe the show should go on?

I really hope this show stays on the air! I love it and I will be depressed if I can't see Lee Pace on my TV screen every week. I signed the petition a few weeks ago...hopefully it works.

What a shame, the show is brilliant but so are like, ALL of Bryan Fuller's creations.....especially Dead Like Me and Wonder Falls. Pushing Daisies is a wonderful show, but to me since it does not top Dead Like Me, it unfortunately won't stick around too long either. :(

Yea! new episode Wednesday! Thank you Buzz, I too was wondering when it would be back. As far as renewing goes if they don't bring it back, we'll all just have to get together and convince them other wise!

I got sucked in this season but have learned from other shows (Big Shots) that ABC is good at being flaky with shows. I am an ABC girl but if they don't stop changing their line up every season, I'm going to get really annoyed. Save Daisies and bring back Big Shots for crying out loud. Give a show a chance and stop airing things on Wednesdays that interfere with the Wednesday line up all the time.

I hope they at least show the last of the 13 episodes if it gets canceled.

"It brings MUCH needed happiness and an escape from reality. Please do not cancel it!" Exactly! With the way things have been recently, we need something like this. I mean it's not like everyone needs yet another CSI/crime show in general or another hospital drama. We need something happy and whimsical!

I signed the online petition, and I keep track of the forum on the ABC site. I love this show, it truly is the best show ever made. I've been on quite a withdrawal for the past two weeks, and I just can't imagine TV being the same without it.

I know to some this may just be a TV show, but this is the glue that keeps my week together. I look forward to this show so much that I don't know what I would do without it. It brings MUCH needed happiness and an escape from reality. Please do not cancel it! I just signed the online petition!

I don't mean to be overly emotion BUT I am actually heartsick at the thought of this show being does this suck scissors. Oh well at least I'll have the DVDs to enjoy.

I'll be so depressed if it's canceled! It's such an adorable show, and different from the other stuff that I watch, it would be so sad. :(

This is exactly the type of thing that makes me hate television. I don't even like getting attached to shows because I have very bad luck with my favorites. Please keep it on the air!

that has to suck to be in such limbo about your job on a show. there's always so much chatter about what's going on in the TV industry and it must be nerve wreaking to hear conflicting reports. i've never seen the show but i know that a lot of you guys here love it - so i hope that it stays.
