According to Entertainment Weekly, show creator Alena Smith had Wiz in mind while developing how Death would be portrayed in the new series. “We had a creative meeting of the minds in approaching the character, and his playful spirit fit in perfectly with the mischievous tone of the show,” she said in a statement. The show premieres November 1 on Apple TV+.
