We have some good news for our Canadian readers. The Mary Kills People TV show has been renewed for a third and final season on Global. While Lifetime hasn’t yet announced it has renewed Mary Kills People for season three, that does not mean it is cancelled. Last year, although the Global renewal was announced on June 5th, Lifetime didn’t announce until July 28th. We suggest you put cancellation out of your head, until at least August, and enjoy the summer.
A Lifetime black comedy-drama, Mary Kills People stars Caroline Dhavernas, Jay Ryan, and Richard Short. The second installment of the series features guest stars Rachelle Lefevre and Ian Lake. The story centers on Dr. Mary Harris (Dhavernas). This physician and single mother also operates a mercy-killing business on the side. As with the first two installments, the third season of Mary Kills People will consist of six hourlong episodes.
