‘Revenge’ Sequel Series With Latinx Lead in Development at ABC

ABC is in development on a follow up to the drama series “Revenge,” Variety has confirmed.

The new project hails from “Revenge” creator Mike Kelley and original series writer Joe Fazzio. It tells the story of a young Latinx immigrant who, guided by one an original series’ character, arrives in Malibu to exact revenge on a pharmaceutical dynasty, whose insatiable greed led to the murder of her biochemist mother, the destruction of her family, and a global epidemic.

Kelley and Fazzio will write and executive produce, with Melissa Loy and Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen also executive producing. ABC Studios will produce.

The original series ran on ABC for four seasons beginning in 2011. It starred Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Gabriel Mann, and Nick Wechsler. The series proved to be a breakout hit upon its premiere, with Stowe receiving a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a drama series in 2012.

Among the other shows that ABC has put into development this season are a spinoff of the comedy “Fresh Off the Boat,” which would focus on an Indian family and star Vir Das and Preity G. Zinta. Another high-profile project at ABC this season is a drama inspired by the early music career of Mandy Moore, with that project receiving a put pilot order at the network.

Deadline first reported the “Revenge” news.
