America Ferrera as Ugly Betty
Say it isn’t so! ABC has pulled the plug on our precious Mode magazine series Ugly Betty, starring America Ferrera. The series still has eight episodes left, and the last episode will air in April in the US.
America, who plays braces-clad Betty Suarez, navigates the New York fashion magazine industry and transforms from an awkwardly dressed secretary to a, well, awkwardly dressed head honcho.
The show has even been distinguished with an Emmy and a Golden Globe, with America also winning a Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding lead actress in 2007.
Luckily for us, the fourth season hasn’t premiered yet so we’ll get to enjoy a full season before we see our favourite magazine employee go off air. We’ll miss you, Betty!
