‘Kocktails With Khloe’ Canceled: Kardashian Talk Show Ending After One Season
Khloe Kardashian’s talk show “Kocktails with Khloe” has been canceled less than three months since its premiere. Both FYI and the reality star have decided to mutually part ways.
In a statement furnished to Gossip Cop by the network, it’s said, “After 14 episodes, ‘Kocktails with Khloe’ will end its run on Wednesday, April 20 with an episode featuring Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. FYI and Pilgrim Media Group appreciate everyone’s great work on the series and are pleased that the show brought new viewers and significant numbers to FYI’s linear and digital platforms. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Khloe and thank her for her hard work and unique voice that she brought to the series.”
Kardashian is choosing to focus on other work, including “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and separate side projects, as opposed to filming a second season. Network executives reportedly took note of Kardashian’s disinterest in the project, which was one of the factors that led to the show’s cancellation. The series was greenlit in July 2015, at which time the network ordered eight one-hour episodes.
The premiere was later delayed following Lamar Odom’s medical crisis. Then, after the show had relative success earlier this year, the episode amount was extended to 13, and now 14. “Kocktails with Khloe” still has two episodes left to air, with the series finale scheduled for April 20. UPDATE: Kardashian tweeted hours after the news broke, “I’m so thankful to the team at @FYI and @pilgrimstudios for their hard work on the show…”
“And to all of my guests who made this such a fun experience,” she continued. “April 20 will be the final episode. But we’re going out with a bang! ;) Your support each week has meant more to me than you could imagine, and I’ll continue to make time for our weekly chats. There are SO many exciting things coming up for me that I can’t wait to share with you… I’m not going anywhere :) Love you always! XO.”
