Reaper (television) Television series debuting on CW on September 25, 2007, and ending May 26, 2009. Sam, having skipped college, works in a dead-end job at the local Work Bench home improvement store and wastes endless hours playing video games. His parents never challenged him as they did his younger brother, Kyle. Now, turning 21, he finds out the reason—his parents sold his soul to the devil before he was born. Satan himself drops by to explain that Sam must now serve as his bounty hunter, tracking down evil souls that have escaped and returning them to Hell. While he initially rejects his fate, Sam soon realizes that breaking a deal with the devil has dire consequences. So, with the aid of friends from work, Sam is surprised to find that he somehow feels good about his newfound mission—removing evildoers from the world as the Reaper.
