‘The Real’ Officially Canceled After 8 Seasons

Co-hosts Loni Love and Garcelle Beauvais confirmed the news on their social media accounts.

The Real daytime talk show is wrapping up the series after eight seasons on air.

According to PEOPLE, the Emmy award-winning show has officially been cancelled. Co-hosts of the show Loni Love and Garcelle Beauvais also took a moment to confirm the news on her Instagram.

“In the end The Real cast & crew did everything we could to scale the show down,” Love explained in her post. “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..”

Adding, “This is not goodbye but see you all soon!”

Beauvais headed to her Twitter to also confirm the series cancelation.

“It [was] a fun ride!! Got to work with [a]  group of amazing women and crew,” she wrote on Twitter alongside three praying emojis.
