Pushing Daisies comic will tie up loose ends, unearth 1,000 corpses

As the clock ticks down to the final three episodes of Pushing Daisies, creator Bryan Fuller offers a few more details on the show’s continuation this fall in comic-book form.

The Emmy-nominated comedy-drama, about a pie-maker who can (with a few critical limitations) resurrect the dead, was canceled by ABC in November after barely two seasons.

Fuller, who also created Dead Like Me and co-created Wonderfalls, revealed last month he’d struck a deal with DC Comics for a 12-issue miniseries — through Wildstorm, presumably — that will tie up loose ends left by Pushing Daisies‘ untimely demise.

“We’ve arced it out,” Fuller tells Sci Fi Wire in a new interview that contains spoilers for the final episodes. “The dangling threads from the series with Chuck’s father and Ned’s father and the pocket watches are all dealt with, not secondarily, but there’s a whole new story that happens when there is a flash flood in the cemetery and all the bodies wash past Ned’s and it’s Ned versus a thousand corpses. That’s the story of the comic book.”

He says if the miniseries is successful, we could see more Pushing Daisies comics.

The first of the final three episodes airs tonight at 10 Eastern on ABC.
