Did anyone else love Revenge? Well, the first season anyway? I did. I thought that the first season was great and then it went downhill. But I stuck with the show, as I always do – holding out hope that it would get better.
And part of the reason that I stuck with the show was Emily Van Camp. The talented actress played the lead role in the series which ran on ABC from 2011-2015.
There was a revival of the series that was previously in the works and was set to follow a Latinx immigrant that was guided by the actions of Emily Thorne. Revenge can sometimes be sweet, but it is always very complicated.
Emily was speaking with Variety about her role on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the Revenge revival was brought up in the interview. Emily, ever the most eloquent interviewee had this to say about the revival.
“It’s been talked about, and I know that they were going to revive maybe in a different way, and I was super supportive and excited for that, too. I just don’t know that they really found a way that makes sense or that they really want to do it yet,” Emily said.
She continued, “But, listen, I mean, if I’ve learned anything in this industry is never say never. I do feel that, you know, in terms of Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke, her story really did come to an end. But again, you never know. I mean, I honestly didn’t think that I would be playing Sharon again, and here I am.”
I’d love a revival in the future. Would you? Did you watch Revenge?
