It's been Real: Another popular daytime talk show gets axed
Los Angeles, California - The daytime talk show has been canceled! After eight season on air, The Real is saying goodbye.
On Friday, People reported that the popular daytime show, The Real, has been canceled after eight seasons.
The news was confirmed by Warner Bros. and Telepictures plus two of the show's current host, Loni Love and Garcelle Beauvais, who addressed the cancellation on their respective social media pages.
"In the end The Real cast & crew did everything we could to scale the show down. We shot 7-8 shows in 3 days, no audience, made a conference room into a studio, but in my opinion Covid costs killed this show. It's been a great ride and thanks to the viewers for 8 great seasons!" Love wrote in her Instagram post.
"It as a fun ride!! Got to work with a group of amazing women and crew," Beauvais tweeted about the show's cancellation.
The series debuted in 2013 with Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housely, and Tamar Braxton.
Braxton left the talk show after two seasons, citing her desire to "concentrate on her solo career" as the reason, though it was rumored that the singer had some beef with her former cohosts.
Mowry-Housely announced her departure from the series in July 2020 and was later replaced by Beauvais.
The Real is the latest daytime talk show to be nixed following the surprising cancellation of The Wendy Williams Show.
