As reported yesterday, the cast and crew of Pushing Daisies are still clueless about the fate of their beloved quirky dramedy.  Reports surfaced that the recently filmed 13-episode season could be the last for the series since ABC has given no indication that it plans to order additional installments to complete a full second season, despite the fact that what might be the final episode ends with a “huge cliffhanger” involving a lead character, according to series creator Bryan Fuller.

While everyone anxiously wait for the network's decision on Pushing Daisies, cast member Kristin Chenoweth, who plays Olive Snook, a woman hopelessly in love with a man who doesn't seem to know she exists, has assured fans that she's still going to be visible on stage in case things don't work out on the small screen.

"I'm always going to have the desire to perform live.  I'm always going to be looking for the Broadway show to get to come back to because it's my first love," the Pushing Daisies actress said, assuring her supporters that she hasn't left her Broadway days behind her.

Furthermore, part of Kristin Chenoweth's eventual return to Broadway comes with the fact that she really misses New York.

"I have made the transition here pretty easily," she said of moving to Los Angeles.  "I love getting in my car and driving and I love the weather, but I will always be a New Yorker."

In addition to Pushing Daisies, Kristin Chenoweth is also credited for her roles on The West Wing as Annabeth Schott, and as Kristin Yancey on Kristin.  Most recently, she has been cast in Into Temptation, a drama film about a prostitute who plans to end her life on her birthday, but her priest attempts to stop her from doing so.  She will also be lending her voice in the animated movie Rapunzel as the title character.
