In news that is not shocking to anyone who has watched this show since the beginning, Revenge has been sent to the TV graveyard after 4 seasons. There were rumors that ABC may pick Revenge up for a shortened final season, but Entertainment Weekly says that’s not happening. The finale will air on May 10th. Revenge’s executive producer released this statement:
“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.”
There’s another rumor that the ABC pilot The Kingmakers is a Revenge spin-off. Revenge’s writer/producer Sallie Patrick is the creator of The Kingmakers. Apparently, Revenge ends with a little cliffhanger, so some think that cliffhanger will pick up in The Kingmakers’ pilot episode.
This makes me a little sad, because I’ll miss screaming “When is this trick going to get revenge already?!” at the screen. I swear, that Amanda Clarke was trained in the ancient art of revenge or whatever and it still took her a million years to get revenge.
This season, they’ve been killing characters off and wrapping up storylines, so its death notice was practically on the wall. I figured it was over when (SPOILER ALERT) Victoria Grayson’s flesh and bones were scattered all over the Hamptons after she blew up in Grayson Manor. How can Revenge go on without Victoria Grayson judging everyone while wearing yet another tight, sleeveless cocktail dress?
