London (ANI): Officials at US TV network ABC have slammed rumours claiming that hit TV series Ugly Betty will be cancelled. The bosses insist that the show will be back. ABC had announced that the programme, starring America Ferrera, will be taken off-air in March, prompting fears that the series would be axed following the season three finale.
However, TV executives have now issued a statement assuring fans the show will be back. "Ugly Betty will return following the run of In the Motherhood and Samantha Who? The Thursday night block is a good opportunity to launch these comedies. That said, Betty is a solid performer and there is no question that it will definitely be back to complete its season, just without repeats." The Daily Express quoted an ABC spokesperson as saying.
