The first season of the Mary Kills People TV show premiered with decent ratings for a Lifetime drama, but dropped off rather sharply. Still, the series, which is a co-production with Canada’s Global Television was renewed for a second season. Now that Mary’s back to kill again, will the Nielsen ratings show mercy? Will Mary Kills People be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
A Canadian black comedy-drama, Mary Kills People stars Caroline Dhavernas, Jay Ryan, and Richard Short. The second installment, on Global and Lifetime, features guest stars Rachelle Lefevre and Ian Lake. The series centers on Dr. Mary Harris (Dhavernas). This physician and single mother also operates a mercy-killing business on the side. Season two kicks off eight months after Mary and Des (Short) framed Grady (Greg Bryk) for their patients’ deaths. After his release from prison, Des is happy to re-team with Mary, but she wonders if she was better off without him. Meanwhile, the mysterious Olivia Bloom (Lefevre), presents them with a deadly request that could change everything. **Status update below.
