Revenge Cancelled By ABC After Four Seasons
It’s time to bid one of our favorite shows adieu because Revenge was just cancelled by ABC.
That’s right, after four seasons of following Emily Thorne aka Amanda Clarke’s (Emily VanCamp) every twisted move, we’ll be leaving the Hamptons behind and putting a cap on the red sharpie once and for all. This news comes via Entertainment Weekly, the first outlet to report the news.
“We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story,” executive producer Sunil Nayar told the publication. “We’ve been talking to the network and we all just wanted to make sure that we felt very confident.”
Bummer, right? Not if you’re a sucker for finales that’ll leave you breathless because that’s what the now-confirmed series finale is likely to do — per Sunil’s juicy tease.
“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.”
It’s been pretty evident that Revenge’s end was nigh — especially after most of the Grayson family is already dead. Conrad (Henry Czerny) was the first to go, Daniel (Josh Bowman) soon followed, and Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) just offed herself in a huge explosion. Only Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) remains and she’s in rehab so she’s obviously at a low point.
What else is there for Emily/Amanda to do now? She and dad David (James Tupper) can ride off into the sunset together now — or, you know, something more sinister.
Also telling is just how far the show’s fallen in the ratings since it came on the scene back in 2011. The series premiere delivered just over 10 million viewers and a 3.3 rating in the key demo and the most recent episode pulled in 4.45 million viewers and a 1.0 in the demo.
All that aside, Sunil knows the show is going out on top and even promises that there’s a “little cliffhanger” in the series finale — set to air on May 10. Given the episode’s title, “Two Graves,” we’re thinking our morally-ambiguous protagonist won’t meet a happy end when the curtain finally falls.
