REVENGE To Come To End After Four Seasons With May 10th Series Finale!

One more primetime soap opera is about to exit the airwaves!  After soap fans last saw TNT’s Dallas cancelled, now comes word that ABC and the producers of Revenge have decided that the upcoming May 10th episode of the series will be its last.  What this means is that after four seasons, Revenge will come to its conclusion.

The series which once brought in numbers in 2011 of over 10 million total viewers during an episode is now turning in numbers around 4.45 million viewers.

Revenge showrunner Sunil Nayar related to Entertainment Weekly:  “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.”

Recently with Victoria Grayson’s (Madeleine Stowe) suicide and Emily (Emily VanCamp) coming out and admitting she is truly Amanda Clarke, the stage is set for a whopper of series finale, especially since its entitled, “Two Graves”.    Nayar  previewed:  “There are epic emotional moments in the finale. There are really shocking things that happen in the finale. It’s a tricky thing because the fans are such passionate lovers of the show and we really want to give them what they want, but the hard part about a finale in a show like this is you want to give them some of what they want, some of what they don’t know they want yet and some of what they never expected, and it needs to be a perfect mix of all those things. I truly believe our finale is the perfect mix of all those three things. I think they’re going to be extremely satisfied.”

awww that is sad..
I really liked Revenge, a great primetime soap..

when Revenge first aired it was to be a short series and it went on beyond it’s time..

Gotham, Scandal, Good Wife, American Crime, Empire, are also great primetime soaps/series, there are others that are really good too..
But will miss Revenge, a lot 🙁
Revenge was awesome while it lasted!! I really enjoyed every episode!
The final episode will need a Kleenex !

Even though it would come full circle…I’m hoping David doesn’t die. But after all the people that got caught up in Amanda’s revenge, It seems a fitting irony. All too sad…but great TV.

I think Jack and Stevie will find Victoria and prove that she framed Emily as revenge for Daniel’s death. Emily and Jack will sail off with lil Carl…and then Faux-manda will show in the final seconds ready to reclaim her husband and son.

I have been a loyal fan and will miss watching the show. Certainly appreciated it while it lasted. At least I’ll still have “Mr. Suffrage” on PBS Sunday nights and “Downton Abbey” for one more season.

Suffrage is something else! 🙂

Sad, but not exactly surprising, given the recent direction of the writing. Now that all of the Graysons (excepting Charlotte) are residing here in Hell, and Emily has outed herself as Amanda Clarke, there really wasn’t anywhere for them to take the show.

Now if only they can pull off a series finale that is worthy of the show at it’s best. As opposed to some of the other series finales in recent years (don’t get a Devil started on LOST! )

Very disappointed but they’ve already killed off half the key players. Been missing Aiden and Daniel…basically all those that fell like the dominoe theory…one by one. I never tired of the show and will miss it. Jack, Emily/Amanda and of course Nolan…all great characters, relationships…interwoven into one passionate, exciting, engrossing he’ll luca ride! Hate endings…

I know! Just rather maddening when I notice it AFTER I’ve written what I thought was some brilliant insight! 😉

They really wrote Revenge into a corner however listening to the creator maybe that was intentional maybe they all knew that this wouldn’t last more than 4 seasons. It was a show like Prison Break in that great characters good ideas but it was never going to be a long running series due to the concept of the show. So its not to surprising. Yes they did things in the show that had plot holes sometimes & they started killing off favorites but it was still a great show & I actually never really looked at Revenge as being a Prime time Soap opera but I suppose it fits into that concept with the divorces & deaths & secrets I guess the one thing different is that they couldn’t just switch to another group of characters once characters with major story lines had ran its course on the show so they should be happy with its 4 season run because once it was revealed that Emily was Amanda Clarke really not much else you can do

I agree with you. Except I do consider it a night time soap. Actually when you look at many other prime time shows they also have elements of soaps you mentioned, plus betrayals and lies. Not as much, if any, of the children, baby dramas though. Probably should have been a mini-series.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
