ABC is making its first moves during this television season, picking up the back nine on two Wednesday night offerings: Revenge and Suburgatory. In addition, the network has ordered six additional scripts for sophomore comedy Happy Endings.

Revenge, loosely based on the Alexandre Dumas book The Count of Monte Cristo, has been given a full 22-episode season. The series, led by Emily Van Camp and Madeleine Stowe, has been holding firm in its 10 p.m. slot, averaging 8.8 million total viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49 in its first three weeks. Its most recent episode won the hour in the demo, topping veteran CBS procedural CSI in the process.

Revenge, developed by Mike Kelley, centers on Emily Thorne (Van Camp), or Amanda Clarke, who returns to the Hamptons to take revenge on the people who destroyed her family, including her father’s (James Tupper) death. Gabriel Mann, Henry Czerny, Ashley Madekwe, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Connor Paolo and Christa B. Allen round out the ensemble cast.

The full order is expected for Suburgatory, as the rookie series notched a strong ratings performance in its debut on Sept. 28, averaging 9.8 million total viewers and a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49, serving as a strong lead-in to Modern Family.
