"New Lease" is an episode of The Outer Limits television. It first aired on 21 March 1997, during the third season.



Dr. James Houghton and Dr. Charles McCamber, working in secret, develop a means of revitalising the dead.

Opening narration

The quest to conquer death is as old as man himself. We conjure dark angels, whose untimely arrival we hope to avert with guile and perseverance. But in the end it is inevitably the grave, not hope, which prevails.


After a semi-successful test—a patient is revived, but immediately begins a painful deterioration—Dr. Houghton is assaulted and killed in a robbery attempt. He is revived believing that he has only a few days to live. Fearing that he has neglected his wife, he tries at first to make up for it by showering her with attention and affection—but his resentment toward the man who murdered him takes over. Certain that he will die soon, he takes revenge on the robber—only to find out later that he will live. He is arrested later that day on murder charges.

Closing narration

If we measure how much we value life, solely by our dread of dying, then it may well be that we have no sense of its value... at all.
