17 TV Shows About the Afterlife That’ll Have You Pondering Life & Death
Dead Like Me
When you think of the afterlife, you often think of grim reapers — the shadowy figures tasked with bringing your soul to its final destination. Dead Like Me flips the idea of grim reapers on its head and portrays them as everyday people just trying to move on to their afterlife. When George (Ellen Muth) is killed in a freak toilet-seat accident (yeah, really), she unwittingly becomes a reaper. She has to guide a secret number of souls to their afterlife before she can travel to her own . George and her crew of reapers all have plenty of time to sort out their lives post-death and pre-afterlife as they muddle through limbo.
