Prior to his death on June 24, 2011, Peter Falk had expressed interest in returning to the role, announcing in 2007 that he had chosen a script for one last Columbo episode, Columbo: Hear No Evil. The script was renamed Columbo's Last Case. ABC, the network which has aired the new Columbo series since 1989, declined the project. In response, producers for the series announced they were attempting to shop the project to foreign production companies. Falk's involvement in the project was put into doubt after he was diagnosed with dementia in late 2007, following some dental treatment. During a 2009 court trial over Falk's care, Dr Stephen Read stated that Falk's condition was so bad he could no longer remember the character of Columbo.
Peter Falk died on June 23, 2011. He was 83 years old.
