A reality series that been under attack throughout its run is ready to call it quits after a final season. B&C reports that Discovery Channel will pull the plug on “Amish Mafia” after season four.
The show returns Feb. 10 for its fourth and final season.
Said Laurie Goldberg, group executive VP of public relations for Discovery: “It’s a combination of the show running its course and its not really being consistent with [channel President] Rich Ross’s vision for the network.”
“Amish Mafia,” which is presented in a docu-reality style, has endured criticism from the outset over its depicitions of the Amish community, with scholars and law-enforcement officials among those accusing the show of presenting an inaccurate image of the Amish.
