ABC Cancels ‘Revenge’ After Four Seasons
After four seasons, ABC is saying goodbye to Revenge, which will air its final episode next month.
Revenge‘s cancelation was confirmed by executive producer Sunil Nayar Wednesday after reports began to leak suggesting the show’s end.
“We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story,” Nayar told Entertainment Weekly, which first reported the news of the cancellation. “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.”
Rumors started circulating about the fourth season of Revenge possibly being its last when one of the series’ main characters Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) was killed off earlier this season. Following her character’s death, Stowe confirmed that Victoria was truly dead and that she was officially done with the ABC drama.
“This is my last season,” Stowe told E! before acknowledging that the show could go on without her. “I think that it’s still up in the air for the rest of the castmembers. I think there are people who really love the show and want to go on with the show,” she said. “We’ve had a fabulous crew. They’ve been with us for four years, and I’m so very close with them that I’ll be rooting for them all if that’s what they want to.”
Revenge‘s final episode will air on ABC Sunday, May 10.
