The CW has greenlit a 13-episode midseason renewal to its cult-favorite drama Reaper, about a slacker guy who's forced to work for the devil, thanks to a Faustian bargain made years ago by his parents.

According to Variety, the series from ABC Studios has a cadre of loyal fans but has otherwise struggled, ratings-wise.

Renewal decision went down to the wire, coming hours before CW's 2008-09 sked presentation in Gotham on Tuesday morning.

Reaper stars Bret Harrison, Tyler Labine, Missy Peregrym and Ray Wise as the Devil.
