ABC Sets Finale Dates for ‘Resurrection,’ ‘Agents of SHIELD’ and Others

ABC has announced season finale dates for its current series, which include an early-May finish for hot new drama “Resurrection” and expanded closers for vets “The Middle” and “Once Upon a Time.”

The Alphabet will wrap up three of its series — Friday comedies “The Neighbors” and “Last Man Standing” and Thursday drama “Scandal” — in April. “Neighbors” closes up shop on April 11, and “Last Man” ends its season on April 25, the first Friday of the May sweep.

As previously announced, “Scandal” had its series order trimmed to 18 episodes due to the pregnancy of star Kerry Washington. The show will end its season on April 17, and new drama “Black Box” takes its place starting April 24.

“Grey’s Anatomy” will wrap on its traditional final Thursday of the season, May 15.

On Sundays, “Resurrection” (pictured) airs the eighth and final episode of its short inaugural season on May 4, and the following week will see a two-hour finale for “Once Upon a Time” leading into the finale of “Revenge.”

Monday’s “Castle” closes on May 12, followed the next night by first-year series “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” “The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife.”

On Wednesdays, “Suburgatory” and “Nashville” have their finales on May 14, leaving “The Middle” (one-hour), “Modern Family” and “Mixology” to close on May 21, the final night of the season.

The final week of the season also sees the conclusions of “Shark Tank” (May 16), “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (May 18) and “Dancing With the Stars” (May 20).
