TLC Cancels 'Kate Plus 8': Last Season For Kate Gosselin And Kids

Upon hitting what will be the show's 150th episode, TLC is bringing down the axe on Kate Gosselin's "Kate Plus 8." TLC confirmed that after the finale of the show's current season, it will be lights out for Gosselin and her adorable eight.

"TLC has decided not to renew another season of 'Kate +8,'" the network told HuffPost Celeb's Rob Shuter in a statement.

But don't think that just because she'll no longer be gracing the small screen on her namesake show that you won't be seeing Gosselin and her born and bred reality show brood on the tube. TLC has not written the TV mama off altogether.

"TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future," a show rep explained.

Although the cancellation surely came as a shock to the Gosselin bunch, the timing couldn't have been better -- Gosselin recently admitted that she's anxious to get behind the camera as a producer.

News of the cancellation will also, most likely, send fans, who watched Jon and Kate Gosselin's brood grow up, into a tailspin. From watching Kate regain her footing after the couple's split to hearing her kids encourage their mom to start dating again, the series has definitely come full circle -- although some will certainly argue that its last chapter is closing too soon.
