6 Reasons Why Harper's Island Needs to Come Back

Harper's Island

It's been five years since CBS premiered Harper's Island, and in the words of another famous island inhabitant, "We have to go back!" A woefully underrated horror murder mystery, the 13-episode series, which is available on Netflix, follows a group of family and friends that heads to the titular locale for a destination wedding, only to learn that there's a killer among them. At least one character gets whacked each episode, always in spectacular fashion. It was awesome, and it got the shaft (no pun intended). CBS canceled the show after moving it from Thursdays to Saturdays, natch, but if they know what's good for them, they'd bring back the dead.

Worst ways to go: TV's most outrageous deaths

Here are six reasons why CBS should resurrect Harper's Island — and why you should (re)watch.

Harper's Stars Delve Into the Mind of a Serial Killer: Henry Was "Born Bad"

Harper's Island

Death became Harper's Island Saturday when the limited series wrapped up with two big (but maybe not-so-surprising) reveals: The second killer and John Wakefield's child both turned out to be the groom, Henry (Christopher Gorham). If the murderous rampage wasn't enough, Henry also shared that he did it all for the love of his life: his half-sister Abby (Elaine Cassidy). Creepy? Yes, but Gorham, who didn't find out he was the killer until after filming seven episodes, "loved it," he tells TVGuide.com. "I immediately bought a scary-looking knife that I kept in my pocket that no one knew I had. I was armed from the next day." See what else the actor and Cassidy had to say about "broken" Henry, whether or not he committed incest and more.
