‘Scandal’ season 4, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 11, ‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘Revenge’ finale dates confirmed

It could happen -Want to know when your favorite ABC show is coming off the air? Luckily for you, the network has just confirmed the news in a press release Thursday. There are really no major surprises in the announcement at all. The entirety of shows are ending during the key May sweeps period, when ratings matter more to networks than any other time of the year. There are also no bizarre shifts that causes a show to air at a different time or on a different night than it has during the rest of the season. Granted, some shows are airing two-hour finales, but with the exception of the “Dancing with the Stars” finale (which is coming on a Tuesday, as per tradition), every other program will at least begin at its normal time. Hence there being no times listed on any of the shows below.

What is really going to be more of a sticking point for many other there will be whether or not some of these shows have a chance of returning for a second season. ABC is notoriously slow announcing renewals, and while there are some locks to return, there are a few others that will have to sweat out the next few weeks.

Sunday, May 3 – “Secrets & Lies”

Tuesday, May 5 – “Forever”

Thursday, May 7 – “Scandal”

Sunday, May 10 – “Once Upon a Time” (two-hour finale) and “Revenge”
