Emily Thorne’s Revenge is coming to an end. As first reported by EW.com, ABC has cancelled the Hamptons-set drama after four seasons. Two episodes remain in Revenge‘s run, and the show’s Season 4 finale, titled “Two Graves,” will now serve as the series finale.
“We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story,” executive producer Sunil Nayar tells EW. “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.”
While many Revenge fans had starting to suspect that this series was coming to a close, especially after Emily publicly revealed herself as Amanda Clarke a few weeks a go and Victoria committed suicide in show’s April 19 episode, Nayar states that the show could have continued. However, creatively, both he and the network thought it was best to end the series after Season 4.
“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.”
There will certainly be closure for fans who have stuck with RevengeÂ for all four seasons, but not everything will be perfectly resolved by the end of the final episode.
“There’s a tiny little cliffhanger in the series finale,” Nayar says. “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 on Sunday, May 10, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
