Pushing Daises may be canned

ABC’s comedy-drama Pushing Daisies may be canned, with the show rapping up filming for the season without yet receiving a renewal.

Pushing Daisies debuted in October 2007, but dropped off air early in its first run due to the Hollywood writers strike. The “forensic fairy tale” revolves around a pie-maker who has the power to bring the dead back to life.

The show met widespread critical acclaim, but its ratings didn’t fire, with the show averaging 6.6 million viewers and a 2.3 in the 18-49 rating this season.

THR reports that ABC execs are officially saying no decision has been made, but talk around town has the show not being renewed, although it may never officially get that description as ABC is often reluctant to “officially” can shows.
