Fox pulls the plug on ‘Past Life’

Drama's last episode to air on Thursday

Fox has kicked “Past Life” into the afterlife.

Show’s Thursday night episode will be its last — although the net said it will still find a home for “Past Life’s” remaining segs at a later date.

“Past Life” posted a 1.1 rating and 3 share among adults 18-49 on Thursday night, placing it fourth among broadcasters in the hour.

With “Past Life” out, Fox will sked original episodes of the Gordon Ramsay series “Kitchen Nightmares” on Thursdays at 9 p.m. for three weeks. After that, repeats of “Bones” and “Fringe” will air on Thursdays starting March 18, with originals of both dramas back on April 1.

“Past Life” will “be rescheduled to air later in the season.” If it returns at all, “Past Life” will likely be back in the summer.

Fox had picked up seven episodes of “Past Life,” which centered on investigators tapping into reincarnation to solve crimes. Show is based on MJ Rose’s novel “The Reincarnationist.”

David Hudgins, Lou Pitt and Rose were the exec producers, while Warner Bros. TV produced. Richard Schiff, Kelli Giddish, Nicholas Bishop and Ravi Patel starred.

Over at ABC, the equally low-rated “The Deep End,” which also posted low numbers on Thursday, remains — but only because the Alphabet only has one episode left.
