The party’s over for a prime-time reality show that has been a part of the Kardashian family universe. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable channel FYI has canceled “Kocktails with Khloe.”
The show, hosted by Khloe Kardashian, premiered on FYI Jan. 20 and will end its run April 20.
“The final episode of the series will feature special guests Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen,” THR reports.
In a joint statement, FYI and series producer Pilgrim Media Group said: “FYI and Pilgrim Media Group appreciate everyone’s great work on the series and are pleased that the show brought new viewers and significant numbers to FYI’s linear and digital platforms. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Khloe and thank her for her hard work and unique voice that she brought to the series.”
THR adds: “The decision is especially shocking given that it comes two months after FYI gave the prime-time talk show an order for 15 additional episodes on top of the original eight-episode order ‘Kocktails’ had received back in July 2015, when it was greenlit to series.”
Now, instead of the scheduled 23 episodes, the show will wrap after just 14 installments.
The Kardashians, however, continue to maintain a high profile on television. The family’s flagship show, E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” is still going strong after 11 seasons and has spawned numerous spinoffs, including “Dash Dolls” and several variations on the “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami” format.
