Revenge returns on Sunday, March 9 in its new 10 p.m. timeslot, and we can’t wait to see what happens next. The show is now deep into Season 3, and it’s around this time in a television series’ cycle that spinoffs are conceived. This isn’t the case for Revenge, but we’ve thought of a few (completely imaginary) spinoffs ABC might try.
The Charlotte Diaries
Let’s face it: Charlotte has no purpose right now. Going from spoiled brat to independent young woman and back again, Charlotte’s so poorly defined that we don’t know anything about her, other than that she’s a little slow to grasp what’s going on around her. But what if that’s not the case? What if Charlotte secretly knows everything that’s going on in the Hamptons, from Emily’s true identity to all of her family’s nefarious deeds, and is actually an intellectual, fun gal who spends her time in Montauk hanging at Gurney’s with some friends, learning life lessons along the way?
Voulez-vous Coucher Avec Moi
A feel-good workplace dramedy about the goings-on at Voulez, the fictional Montauk fashion magazine. Since Margaux and Daniel are the most unprofessional execs EVER, it’d be fun to see the inner workings of the staff as they try to pick up after Daniel’s mistakes and fact-check Margaux’s spotty attempts at real journalism. Think Ugly Betty meets The Devil Wears Prada in Montauk.
Niko spares Aiden’s life after learning he killed her father, but makes him leave the Hamptons and become an instructor at her new school, Takeda’s Academy for Vengeful Young People. There, we meet the various angry students bent on taking down those that wronged them, along with the faculty, which includes Rohan, Emily’s first husband (who she married to stop him from being deported). By night, Aiden, Niko and Rohan take on various nonsensical (but fun!) missions. Not at all based on an iconic Marvel Comics property.
At long last, viewers get to see the real story of David Clarke, Victoria Grayson, Conrad Grayson and Kara Clarke. We’ve seen snippets of the sordid saga here and there, but this prequel series could shed new light on what really went down prior to Emily returning to the Hamptons. Maybe the finale could reveal that David is really alive and eventually cross over into the main show.
Because every city needs its own cop show, and every cop show needs the word “blue” in the title, why not feature the completely bogus “Hamptons Police Department” introduced in Revenge Season 1? In this Keystone Cops-meets-Reno 911 comedy a team of local screw-ups spend their days busting beach parties, managing the exploding deer population and pulling over a bevy of rich and famous guest stars in luxury sports cars. Hilarity ensues.
