Award winning show Ugly Betty, the show that made America Ferrera a star when it started 2006 will be cancelled. Its final episode will air on the 14th of April, the 20th episode of season 4.
The show started strong on but has lately posted anemic ratings and was hurt by a move to Fridays last fall. In a statement made by ABC’s chief Steve McPherson “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.”
The show originated from the hit Colombian telenovela “Yo soy Betty, la fea (I am Betty, the ugly)” which is a story of a smart but ugly University graduate trying her luck in getting a decent job but was regularly rejected because of her ugly features.
Here is the finale’s summary:
“Betty’s reluctance to tell Daniel about her future is holding her back, Justin and Bobby go in search of a new place — although Hilda doesn’t seem too keen. Amanda struggles to deal with the death of her dog, Halston, and Marc thinks he is destined to be alone.”
I will surely miss Ugly Betty after tonight’s episode, where will I get my Amanda and Marc fix? Will you also miss them after this night’s finale?
