Lost isn’t the only beloved ABC series wrapping things up this spring. The network just announced that Ugly Betty’s current fourth season will be the show’s last:
“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.”
This wasn’t totally unexpected, given the show’s crappy ratings and frequently changing time slot, and that so many fans of hour-long dramedies about unsightly teenagers have switched to Glee, which features singing.
