Daytime talk show The Real, hosted by Garcelle Beauvais, Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai Jenkins, has been canceled after eight seasons. MTO News had reported weeks ago that the show was getting the axe. Now the decision has officially been announced.
Fox Stations Group decided not to renew the Emmy-Award winning panel show for a season nine, Variety reported on Friday.
The syndicated series premiered in 2013 and has seen a rotating roster of hosts during its nearly decade-long tenure including Tamar Braxton and Amanda Seales.

In the end The Real cast & crew did everything we could to scale the show down,’ co-host Loni Love said in a statement. ‘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.’
She added: ‘It’s been a great ride and thanks to the viewers for 8 great seasons!’
Garcelle still has a gig – as a member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lonnie Love is a stand up comedian, and is expected tp make a living.
Adrienne and Jeannie don’t seem to have any other jobs But as MTO News reported, Jeannie is in talks to possibly join next season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
