ABC Confirms Revenge Cancellation

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It appears Emily’s infamous red Sharpie has run dry. Many fans felt it was coming after Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) was blown to bits a couple of episodes ago, but were still hopeful. The powers-that-be squashed their hopes today by confirming the show’s cancellation via Entertainment Weekly.

After four seasons, Revenge will air its last episode on Sunday, May 10. The ABC drama made a splash during its freshman series, premiering to 10 million viewers. Once it shifted to Sundays, the viewership declined. A recent episode only garnered 4.45 million eyeballs.

Showrunner Sunil Nayar revealed they delivered a pitch on what direction Revenge would take in Season 5 after Victoria’s death, but both parties decided it was the perfect time to end the series after viewing the Season 4 finale, which is now the series finale titled. Will Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke meet her untimely death as well given that the title of the episode is “Two Graves?” Check out Nayar’s statement to below.

Were you shocked by the final moments of last night’s Revenge? Did Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) blow herself up in a final act of revenge against Emily Thorn (Emily VanCamp)? It would appear so, however, the Grayson matriarch has cheated death once before. Remember the Season 1 cliffhanger where she escaped the exploding plane?

Entertainment Weekly sat down with 56-year-old actress about her character’s fate on the ABC drama. More importantly, she discusses her involvement with Revenge should it continue for another season. Keep in mind she signed a five-year contract with the show. Read some quotes from her interview below.

My favorite guilty pleasure returns this Sunday and couldn’t be more excited! Oh how I’ve missed the fake smiles and backstabbing of Revenge and the looks that Emily and and Victoria Grayson exchange between each other.

In this upcoming episode which is titled “Power,” Victoria begins plotting a scheme which, surprisingly, involves Emily, while Emily locks in on her next target, and Declan discovers something that may threaten the future of the Stowaway.

In the following preview, we see Emily making a scene to make someone believe something has happened when it actually has not. She smirks to herself as she walks away, delighted with her revenge-y work. Love it! Enjoy the preview below and be sure to tune in this Sunday (and play the Revenge Drinking Game if you’re up for it!)

Before They Were On ‘Revenge’

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Since Revenge is airing its winter finale tonight, I thought it was a perfect time to write this post. The inspiration for this came to me while I was nursing a flu recently. Nothing brings me back from the brink of death more than chicken noodle soup and watching old movies on Netflix.

While watching 13 Going on 30 for the umpteenth, I recognized one of the cast members from the ABC drama. Have any ideas on whom? Thankfully for IMDB, I didn’t have to rack my brain for hours trying to recall where I knew this person from. Seriously, what did we do before IMDB and internet?

After I figured out who it was, I decided to research what other roles the cast of Revenge played prior to their current ones. Do you know who starred in two Jason Bourne movies? How about, who starred in a movie, coincidentally titled Revenge? How’s this for a head-scratcher… who hooked up with Amy Winehouse? Find out the answers to all these below.

One of my favorite shows premiered its second season on Sunday night and I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that I’m referring to none other than ABC’s ‘Revenge‘. To tell you the truth, I was also extremely excited about the premiere of Season 2 of ‘Once Upon A Time‘ last night as well in addition to the series premiere of ‘666 Park Avenue.” Sundays are now all about the church of ABC television!

A lot happened in the season 2 premiere of Revenge. Some time has passed since the plane crash and Victoria’s “death”. Emily went back to her revenge-y training, Jack has become depressed about his situation, Charlotte is back from rehab, and Amanda Clarke is about to pop. Emily is determined to find her mother and Nolan is still there to help her along the way. Some VERY interesting things happened in this episode and we also got our first look at Emily’s mother (played by Jennifer Jason Leigh) in some of the flashbacks.

Rather than spend time recapping the play by play, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the best lines from last night. All of those Revenge-y lines we’ve missed all summer. Seriously, I burtst with excitement when each of the lines below were delivered. Hope you enjoy!

Revenge was definitely one of my favorite shows from last season. The ABC drama definitely brought back the nighttime soap in stylish fashion due to its constant stream of twists and turns. Just when you thought the writers couldn’t shock you, they did. Now you can relieve every deep, dark secret thanks to the release of Revenge Season 1 DVD available today. If you haven’t watched the show, now is your chance to catch up. You have an entire month before the second season premiere on September 30 on its new night.

If you’re like me and a fan of the show, you’re going to love all the extra features on the DVD set. First, you have numerous deleted scenes that never aired. Sure, some of them are unnecessary, but some give new insight and provide juicy moments. One of my favorites is when Emily and Ashley walk in on Fauxmanda and Jack getting busy on the pool table at the Stowaway.

As delicious as some of the scenes are, it’s all about the bloopers. Watching the usually serious Madeline Stowe curse and laugh as she flubs her lines is must-see television. A couple of the featurettes are entertaining as well. The fashion segment detailing all the couture on the show courtesy of costume designer Jill Ohanneson is very informative. Equally as revealing, is the visit to the Revenge sound stages. It’s amazing how mostly everything is filmed indoors.

By far the biggest letdown was the commentary by Emily VanCamp and creator Mike Kelley during the pilot episode. It was a little bland and it felt like VanCamp was constantly pointing out how cold she was during some scenes. LOL. Check out one of the deleted scenes below, along with a Season 2 promo.

Last night, the season finale of the best show on television, ‘Revenge‘ aired and it did not disappoint. After so many intense twists & turns, cold stares, and elaborate schemes, Season 1 went out with a bang leaving fans like me majorly thirsty for more and eagerly awaiting Season 2.

The last 5 minutes of the episode (titled “Reckoning“) I literally had to watch again right after. It was epic, scored to the haunting sounds of Florence + The Machine singing “Seven Devils“. So much happened in those five minutes that open the door for an exciting and intense second season this fall.

Literally something huge shifted in the story for every single one of the main characters in this last episode and it was definitely the most shocking & explosive episode of the season. You’ll notice that I’m not giving anything away in terms of specific in case you haven’t yet scene it. For those of you that have, relive the last 5 minutes again below. You won’t regret it.

Watch the last 5 minutes below…

I’m SO excited for ‘Revenge‘ to come back into my life this Wednesday. I’ve been dying for an Emily and Victoria stare-down forever!

Now if you recall where we left off, Daniel (Josh Bowman) has been charged with Tyler’s murder and is now in prison awaiting trial. Meanwhile, Victoria (Madeline Stowe) is determined to prove her son’s innocence with the help of Emily Thorne (Emily Vancamp). Unfortunately for Emily, Jack (Nick Weschler) is somewhat involved in the incident so she must protect him as well.

In this week’s episode, Daniel’s imprisonment sends Victoria to depths that no one could have imagined, as the surprise return of a past love (James Purefoy as Dominik Wright) proves to be a welcome distraction from her family’s struggles. The preview for the remainder of the season is epic and there is SO much more drama to come. The best part is Emily at the end saying, “How did I not know this?” There are so many more twists and turns ahead. Can’t wait! Get your ‘Revenge’ fix below.
