'The Real' To Be Canceled After Eight Seasons On The Air: Report
Fan favorite talk show The Real will reportedly end in the coming months.
According to The Jasmine Brand, the all-female talk show is set to go off the air after eight seasons. While the specific reason for the cancellation hasn’t been confirmed, it’s speculated that ratings played a part in its demise.
The Real is a talk show that premiered for full syndication in 2014 on Fox-owned markets. The chat show is currently co-hosted by singer and actress Adrienne Bailon, comedian and actress Loni Love, television host and fashion stylist Jeannie Mai, as well as actress and model Garcelle Beauvais.

Many famous faces have been a part of the show's panel, including actress Tamera Mowry, television star Tamar Braxton and comedian Amanda Diva.
The Real initially achieved a fair amount of success with Bailon, Love, Mai and Mowry taking home a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Hosts in 2018. The daytime series was also nominated and has won multiple NAACP Image Awards in the span of its run.
None of the current panelists nor the show — created by SallyAnn Salsano and 495 Productions — has confirmed the shocking cancellation.

Many notable celebrities and public figures have appeared on The Real with the co-hosts even traveling to the White House in January 2016 to chat with First Lady Michelle Obama. The show also held an exclusive interview with the controversial Rachel Dolezal in 2015, where she openly admitted she had been born white.
The show's reported cancellation comes after Nick Cannon’s talk show was recently axed following its one-season run. According to Deadline, The Nick Cannon Show struggled with ratings, as it ranked the lowest-rated single-host daytime syndicated talk show this season and averaged a 0.4 household rating.
