ABC has set a series finale date for “Ugly Betty.”
The show, which the network has decided to end after four seasons, will close its doors on Wednesday, April 14. That’s 10 weeks from now; as the show has only seven episodes remaining on its order for the season, expect a few reruns mixed in with the last batch of originals.
ABC announced earlier this week that the mystery “Happy Town” would fill “Betty’s” spot on Wednesday nights starting April 28; there’s no word yet on what will take the week in between the “Betty” finale and “Happy Town’s” premiere.
Series star America Ferrera has hinted that the end of the season might bring on new relationships for the plucky heroine, “or old relationships that become new and kind of change a little bit.” That led to increased speculation that Betty might end up with Daniel (Eric Mabius), similar to the controversial ending of “Betty La Fea,” the telenovela on which the show is based.
Weak ratings led to “Ugly Betty’s” demise. The show has averaged just a little over 5 million viewers a week this season and didn’t improve when it moved from Friday to Wednesday in January.
