Nick Cannon’s self-titled talk show has been cancelled, according to Variety.
The Nick Cannon Show staff were informed today that the talk show would not be renewed for a second season. The show is actually ceasing production today.
Variety reports that while the cancellation is sudden, it doesn’t come as a complete surprise. The Nick Cannon Show was getting ready for a 5-week hiatus starting next week so that host Nick Cannon could fulfill other hosting duties including The Masked Singer and Wild N Out.
“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 Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of the show’s producer-distributor, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury. “We plan to offer viewers original episodes of the daytime talk show through the remainder of this season. 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.”
