ABC is giving Revenge the red Sharpie treatment.
After four twisted seasons, the primetime soap will reach its conclusion in the May 10 season series finale, TVLine has confirmed.
Though the writing has been on the wall for some time — star Madeleine Stowe’s recent departure felt like the nail in the coffin — showrunner Sunil Nayar told TVLine that he wasn’t necessarily planning for this to be Revenge‘s swan song.
“To say we’re approaching this as the last season would be wrong,” he said in December. “But we’re not scared to make choices that will make people ask ‘Where is this going?’”
Now that the finale has been shot and screened, Nayar tells EW.com it’s a different story: “We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story. … We’ve been talking to the network and we all just wanted to make sure that we felt very confident.”

That’s right! Christa’s coming back for this episode. She posted this photo on Instagram 2 weeks ago and I’ve been sitting on the info until I knew which episode she was coming back for and now we know! I’m so excited to see Charlotte come back into the fold and to see how she’s been dealing with all of this.
ABC hasn’t done any of its renewals yet so we don’t know if Baby Daddy will return, but if it does I hope we get to see Robyn again! She and Danny are really cute together.
Christa’s first episode is February 25 at 8:30PM ET/PT and ABC Family has released a press release for the episode:
In “An Officer and a Gentle Ben,” it’s Fleet Week and Bonnie is getting ready to meet up with her yearly fling, Captain Hudson (Isaiah Mustafa). But when the Captain proposes, Bonnie panics and thinks the best way to discourage the Captain is by pretending she’s in love with Tucker. Ben and Riley try to define their relationship, but they keep getting their signals crossed. In an effort to move on, Ben and Tucker pose as sailors and manage to get aboard the Navy ship. But when Captain Hudson comes looking for Tucker, their real identities as civilians are quickly exposed. Meanwhile, Riley’s co-worker Robyn (Christa B. Allen) is impressed with Danny and asks Riley to set them up. But when Robyn and Danny hit it off, will Riley recognize what her best friend really means to her?
Christa attended the Nasty Gal Melrose Launch last week, and I’ve got 13 HQ photos from the event:
Today is Christa’s 23rd birthday! I want to take this time to celebrate it with all of you, from far and wide and all ages. Christa’s been a wonderful light and inspiration to many lives, myself included, and I know many of you fans feel the same. She’s got a lot of things coming up in this new year and we can’t wait to see what they are. Christa is incredibly sweet and supportive and I can’t thank her enough for all that she does. I hope she has the happiest of birthday’s and another amazing year.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTA!
Sunday’s Revenge ended with Christa B. Allen‘s Charlotte (temporarily) leaving the Hamptons to get the help she so desperately needs — but is “help” really code for “ABC Family”?
Allen has landed a recurring role in the upcoming fourth season of ABC Family’s Baby Daddy, TVLine has learned exclusively, playing a corporate lawyer who works with Riley (Chelsea Kane). Described as funny, smart and athletic, Allen’s Robyn immediately hits it off with Danny (Derek Theler) after Riley “begrudgingly” sets the two up on a date.
Baby Daddy fans, take note: If Riley is setting Danny up with Robyn, does that mean she’ll be sticking with Ben, after all? Or is Robyn merely another obstacle on the road to Danny and Riley’s happily-ever-after?
We’ll find out when Allen’s Baby Daddy episodes air in early 2015.
Congrats to Christa on her new gig, we can’t wait to see it and to see her return to the Hamptons with what I’m sure will be a brand new Charlotte.
Check out Christa B. Allen in her brand new short film They Grow Up, provided to JustJared.com for an exclusive online premiere.
The film was directed by Emma Holly Jones and had it’s world premiere at the LA Shorts Fest over the summer.
They Grow Up is about two childhood friends who navigate the dangers of growing up with their imaginary friends.

Christa was AMAZING in this, I know I’ve been waiting for a while ever since seeing the BTS photos from the project so I’m really glad it’s available to the public now. I’ll have screencaptures for it as soon as possible so in the mean time please enjoy the film!
