Variety was first to report the news on Thursday, just over five months after Cannon’s eponymous talk show, The Nick Cannon Show, premiered on Fox and in syndication in September 2021.
Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of the show’s producer-distributor, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, confirmed the show’s cancelation in a statement to PEOPLE.
“It’s never easy to cancel a production with clear potential, but after a great deal of deliberation and examining various options, we have made the difficult business decision to end production on Nick Cannon,” said Marcus and Bernstein.
Viewers will still get new episodes of the daytime talk show “through the remainder of this season,” the pair added, per Variety.
“Our thanks go to the very talented Nick Cannon and our wonderful production team, and we wish Nick continued success with his many hit ventures,” Marcus and Bernstein concluded
According to Deadline, Cannon’s show hasn’t been strong in ratings and was the lowest-rated single-host daytime syndicated talk show this season.
According to Variety, show staff was informed Thursday that production was ending. The show reportedly has enough episodes taped to complete the season.
The Nick Cannon Show is expected to wrap up its first and now only season in May, per the report.
