Kate Gosselin out at TLC, 'Kate Plus 8' canceled at Season 8
But after an appropriately-numbered 8 seasons, TLC is terminating the reality star mother's series, "Kate Plus 8."
"TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8," the network says in a statement, first reported by People. "By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future."
Debuting in 2007, originally on Discovery Healthy, "Jon & Kate Plus 8" followed the everyday trials of a Pennsylvania family raising 8 children and later, to much higher ratings, the dissolution of the titular parents' marriage.
Following her divorce from Jon Gosselin in 2009, the renamed "Kate Plus 8" shifted the focus to the female Gosselin starting in Season 6.
Promoting the Season 8 premiere, Gosselin recently expressed her uncertainty about the show's future, saying "nobody's told me" when asked if it was on the chopping block.
