Four seasons of a reality television show are apparently enough for the Style cable network, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog. The weight-loss show "Ruby" won’t be receiving a fifth-season order from Style, the story reports.
The series tracked the weight-loss challenges of Ruby Gettinger, a Savannah, Ga., resident who weighed close to 500 pounds when the show started in 2008. Her goal was to get down to about 150 pounds.
The fourth-season premiere in March drew 473,000 viewers, the story says. The show has been one of Style’s most successful programs.
A Style spokesperson said, “There are no plans to move forward with a season five,” the story reports, but added that there’s still a possibility that production will resume at a later time.
