Breaking: ABC Orders Full Seasons of Revenge and Suburgatory

ABC is plotting more Revenge and putting down roots in Suburgatory.

The network has picked up both freshman series for full, 22-episode seasons, TVLine has learned. Additionally, sophomore sitcom Happy Endings has received an order for six additional scripts.

Both shows have been solid ratings performers, not to mention critical faves. This week, Revenge surged 13 percent and took the 18-49 demo crown at 10 pm for the first time. Suburgatory, meanwhile, has proven to be the perfect companion to The Middle.

There’s no word on the fate of ABC’s other rookie series, although Charlie’s Angeles seems destined to become fall’s fourth casualty after The Playboy Club, Free Agents and H8R. The plunging Pan Am needs to stabilize fast before it earns a pickup, while potential breakout hit Last Man Standing is probably a week away from a back-nine order.

For those keeping track at home, Revenge and Suburgatory join The CW’s Hart of Dixie, Secret Circle and Ringer, Fox’s New Girl, NBC’s Up All Night and Whitney, and CBS’ 2 Broke Girls in this fall’s full-season club.

  • Suburgatory, I’m guessing one of the most under-rated and un-watched show of the fall season… but it shouldn’t be! It is a great show and I could see it having somewhat of a cult following (if you wanna call it that) just like the Gilmore Girls. It was only until about the third season of Gilmore Girls that it started to pick up popularity, I can see the same thing happening with Suburgatory.. mark my words and check back here in three years… ya, as if that will happen :)

  • Does anyone know why Suburgatory is not available to watch on the ABC website? Its not even available on-demand. Really weird.

  • Revenge i ended up catching on friday night. it is a night time soap and it kept my interest so i kept watching. i agree with a previous writer that she they should build up the revenges in each episode and not just have a plot against one person each episode. The whole crossing each person or circling their picture at the end of the episode is so silly. anyway its enough to hold my interest this season, but when emily gets done exacting her revenge on these hamptonites, what will she do next season? i think that this is a great show for one season, i cannot see how they can stretch it any further.
