It’s official…TLC has decided not to renew Kate Plus 8 for another season.
Once the news broke, Kate took to Twitter and released this statement:
@Kateplusmy8 “We’ve had a great run! Six years of whirlwind funfilled adventures thanks to TLC and our many many supportive &diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future! As is very typical for me, I am choosing to see the positive in this situation and I am excited2consider many more invigorating opportunities that may come my way!I poured my entire self in2 last 6 yrs of ‘Kate+8′ & I can’t wait2have the chance2challenge myself again w future endeavors! In the meanX,I hope 2have more time4motivational speaking,book writing &other fun work opportunities that come my way……And maybe even some dating??!! We wish our fans well. And remember, this is not ‘goodbye’.I prefer to say ‘See you around!’ Xoxo” “Shows will air thru sept 12… Stay tuned and we can enjoy the last eps together..”
It’s actually kind of funny how this announcement came out today. I spent a good portion of the weekend catching up on a BUNCH of episodes of Kate Plus 8 that I had missed!
Altho the show isn’t quite the same anymore, I know I will still miss it. I’m really going to miss seeing those 8 kids on a regular basis. I really did fall in love with them!
