1000 Ways To Die Wiki

The Escaped Death sequences were a series of end-episode segments featured throughout Season 1. Rather than feature glorified depictions of people dying, they instead featured legitimate accounts of people who very nearly died. For reasons unknown, these segments were scrapped entirely come Season 2 and onwards.

These escaped death segments are only on Season 1 (including two pilot episodes). In the German version however, the escaped deaths of episodes 3-11 are replaced with an extra death segment and one extra escaped death segment is added in episode 12.
