ABC Announces Season and Series Finale Dates

By March 13, 2012

Follow me on:

Desperate HousewivesThe end of Wisteria Lane is near and the time has come for our favorite ABC shows to close up shop for the summer (and forever for at least one big show!)...

Thanks to the constant stream of new television shows throughout the fall and winter, this season has just flown by. In just a little more than two months, all of the ABC dramas will air their finales. It may have only begun last week, but newcomer GCB is the first ABC drama to take a bow on May 6, followed by Castle the next day.

Get ready for a night to remember on May 13 when Once Upon a Time wraps their first season, followed by what I imagine will be an epic finale of the long-running guilty pleasure Desperate Housewives. Given the shocking death this past week, I can't wait to see what TPTB have in store for fans in the special two-hour series finale.

Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy are the next to air their finales on May 15 and 17, respectively. I think one of the biggest questions on the minds of Grey's Anatomy fans is whether or not original cast members such as Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo will return next season. There is no word on the fate of these beloved characters as of yet, but I think everyone connected to the show is hopeful that deals will be struck across the board. Would you still watch if all of the original cast members left the show?

Finally, Revenge comes to an exciting end on May 23 and I for one cannot wait to see what Emily has up her sleeve!

Find out when your favorite shows will air their season (and series) finales and be sure to see which major celebrities are coming to primetime TV this fall.

In relation to Patrick Dempsey, I thought I had heard several months or so back that he would not becoming back at the end of this season. I didn’t realize that Ellen might not becoming back either. I hope both of them stay, but then with the way that the show has been going the last few years it’s been more about some of the other main characters such as Christina Yang from what I could tell. I probably would still watch the show if Patrick and Ellen left.
