The never-before-seen final episodes of the series are likely to air Saturday evenings at 10 PM beginning May 30, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Billed as a "blend of romance, fantasy and mystery," "Pushing Daisies" is a "forensic fairytale about Ned, a young man with a very special gift," according to ABC. "As a young boy Ned discovers that he can return the dead briefly back to life with just one touch. But his random gift isn't without deadly consequences… as he soon finds out."

Guest stars on the series have included Raúl Esparza, Christopher Sieber, Barbara Barrie, Mark Harelik and Hamish Linklater.

The second season of "Pushing Daises," including the final three episodes, will be released July 21 on both DVD and Blu-ray.
