We have learned that after four seasons, ABC‘s Revenge will make it’s final appearance May 10.
“We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story,” executive producer Sunil Nayar says.
“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.”
Revenge, which stars Emily VanCamp, made a splash in its 2011 debut, with 10 million viewers tuning in, becoming a strong performer for ABC on Wednesday nights. But a switch to Sundays saw a ratings decline in later seasons.
VanCamp tweeted out her love for the show Wednesday night.
“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,” Nayar says. “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.”
But he promises closure for its fans. “There’s a tiny little cliffhanger in the series finale.We don’t want people to get weary of the stories we’re telling, so we felt like they deserve an ending to this novel that Mike Kelley started four years ago. I really feel like the last couple chapters are worthy of the first many.”
Revenge’s series finale will air Sunday, May 10 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
