Fans of “Pushing Daisies” now have a certain date when they can see the final episodes of the series — provided they’re willing to pony up for the DVD set.
Warner Bros. will release the second season of the cancelled ABC show on DVD and Blu-Ray Tuesday, July 21. The set will include all 13 episodes from the series — including the three that haven’t aired since the network pulled the plug in December.
An ABC rep says the network is planning to air the final three episodes during the summer, but it hasn’t set any dates.
Meanwhile, viewers in Britain will probably get to see the finale before we do in the States, as ITV, which airs the show in the U.K., says it’s committed to the full series. “Norwegians,” the last episode that aired here, is scheduled to run on ITV Friday (April 3), although the channel’s listings don’t show the show airing the following week.
Still, the DVD set will probably cost considerably less than a plane ticket to London.
The DVD will include a handful of extras on the making of the show, including one on the challenges of constructing the show’s fanciful sets, one on the visual effects team and one about composer Jim Dooley.
