Ugly Betty to End Run in April

(From Variety)

ABC's "Ugly Betty" is strutting off the primetime catwalk.

"Ugly Betty" will close its doors this April with a series finale, the network confirmed on Wednesday. Decision to end the show's run was announced to "Ugly Betty's" cast and crew this morning.

Show still has four episodes left to produce this season -- and series exec producer Silvio Horta now plans to use that opportunity to tie up loose ends and wrap things up.

"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," Horta and ABC Entertainment Group chairman Steve McPherson said in a joint statement. "We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell."

ABC ordered 20 episodes of the show this season. Alphabet likely plans to keep the show running straight through the beginning of April, when the finale is tentatively scheduled to run.
