Sounds like Kate is going to really dive into the dating game — and then maybe she will get a new reality show!

She added that the last episode of her show will air Sept. 12.

“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” a spokesperson for the show said in a statement Monday. “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.”

Are you sad to say goodbye to the reality TV family? Sound off in the comments.
