ABC has renewed 11 series, including vet Grey's Anatomy, which will enter its 10th season, and freshman series Nashville. However, the network also canceled Happy Endings, Body of Proof, Red Widow, Malibu Country and How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
Whose days are numbered on Revenge? Viewers will find out by the end of Sunday's two-hour season finale.
"For the first time, one of our core cast members will not survive the season," executive producer Mike Kelley tells TVGuide.com.
As the season winds down, The Initiative is kicking its plan into high gear, staging a city-wide blackout that signals that something major is about to go down. But who is the group's target? And will the death be by its hands? Or will the victim — and the killer — come as a complete surprise? We rank each of the main cast members' odds for demise.
Revenge executive producer Sunil Nayar has been named the series' new showrunner, in the wake of creator Mike Kelley's departure last week, Deadline reports.

Question: I just read that Mike Kelley, the creator of Revenge, is leaving the show after this season. I will admit that this season isn't as good as the first, but it's OK. There are reports that Mike Kelley wanted shorter seasons, like on cable, with 13 episodes instead of the regular 22 moving forward. Since that wasn't going to happen, he left. What do you think? Do you think the show would work better with a shorter episode order? Also, if Kelley knew the show wouldn't work with longer seasons, why didn't he speak up the first season? Do you think someone else stepping in will freshen the show a bit? I will admit the time I started to take a step back and realize the writers were going too far was when they revealed Victoria had yet another child. Really?! Did you think the writers went overboard with that storyline in particular too? I also don't agree with the assertion that Scandal has replaced Revenge.
If Malibu Country returns for a second season, it will have to be without showrunner Nastaran Dibai.
As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dibai is leaving the series, TVGuide.com confirms. The comedy, starring Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, finished its first season in March, and hasn't been picked up yet.
