It’s made stars out of America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams and braces.
But after a solid run on ABC, Ugly Betty is going off the air. Despite critical acclaim this season, and a recent move to viewer friendly Wednesday nights, the show’s ratings were simply too low.
Wrote producer Silvio Horta and ABC president Steve McPherson in a statement:
“We’ve mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty’s final season, and are announcing now as we want to allow the show ample time to write a satisfying conclusion. We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell.”
Mark Indelicato, who plays Betty’s nephew Justin Suarezm, referred to the series as “a learning experience and said: “It’s been an amazing four years.”
We agree. What is your favorite memory from the show? Do you want Betty to end up with Daniel? How do you hope the show wraps up?
