Although series creator Tara Armstrong and star Caroline Dhavernas both want to make additional seasons of their new TV show, Canada’s Global Television has not yet announced if Mary Kills People will be cancelled or renewed for season two. Is a renewal dependent on Lifetime’s continued interest? How will the six-part first season perform in the US TV ratings? Will the American audience extend the life of Mary Kills People, or will they deliver the death blow? Stay tuned.
A black comedy and euthanasia drama, Mary Kills People also stars Jay Ryan, Richard Short, Lyriq Bent, Greg Bryk, Abigail Winter, Grace Lynn Kung, Katie Douglas, Alexandra Castillo, Sebastien Roberts, Lola Flanery, Natalie Lisinska, and Jess Salgueiro. The Global and Lifetime TV series centers on Dr. Mary Harris (Dhavernas). A physician and single mother, Mary also operates a mercy-killing business on the side. She deeply believes people should be in control of their lives and their deaths. To Mary, that is liberty. Dying is not a crime.
