‘Revenge’ Canceled After Four Seasons
Bad news for fans of the ABC series Revenge. It looks like the network has decided to pull the plug on the makeshift soap opera after its four-season run.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show's upcoming season four finale will actually serve as the series' endpoint. Executive producer Sunil Nayar told the site, "We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story. We've been talking to the network and we all just wanted to make sure that we felt very confident. Now that everybody has seen the finale -- which is fabulous -- everybody understands that as much as we all adore the show, it has hit exactly the mark it needed to to end. This is the series finale of Revenge that will be airing in a couple weeks."
Viewers will, undoubtedly, be disappointed to hear that the show is coming to an end. It first debuted in 2011, with Emily VanCamp playing the lead role of Emily Thorne otherwise known as Amanda Clarke, whose sole intent was to seek vengeance against the Grayson family for ruining her own family.
Nayar went on to say he's glad to end the show at a high point. He said, "We certainly had a pitch of how the show could go on, but this is why I feel so grateful to the studio and the network because they also erred on the side of creativity. The show is still popular, it’s loved worldwide. I can see why all the arguments from even an economic standpoint to maybe keep it going, but at the end of the day—kind of like they had with Lost—they support creativity above all. They really got the sense with us as their partners that we all came up with a great way to end these stories.”
He also admitted that the series will end with "a tiny little cliffhanger." The series finale for Revenge will air on May 10 at 10PM EST on ABC.
