The television network announced that the popular food-talk show will not be returning for the eight season.


ABC confirmed in a statement that the ongoing seventh season of The Chew is going to be its last one, according to The Wrap.

The source reported that the television network wants to free up more space for a new third hour broadcast of its widely popular talk show, Good Morning America. Following the cancelation, the talk show will expand into the afternoon time slot as well.

“While this is the right decision for our business, it is also bittersweet,” the source quoted the president of the Disney ABC Television Group, Ben Sherwood, as stating.


He added, “For seven years The Chew has delighted audiences by delivering innovative food segments in an entertaining atmosphere. We applaud and thank Gordon Elliott ... and the entire cast and crew for their great work and amazing run.”


The Chew became one of the unique programs on air with the format of a talk show mixed with food attempted for the first time, according to Gordon Elliot, the creator of the show. Elliot further shared that their team had created a television history.

Elliot also put forward his belief that the program was "the best television" they had ever had the opportunity to produce.

The cancelation of the show has also saddened a lot of fans spread out all across the world. They quickly took to social media to express their disappointment.


Despite all the popularity, the show still suffered one incident of bad publicity in December last year when the co-host of the show, Mario Batali, was accused of sexual assault, harassment, and misconduct by multiple women.

Although the chef exited The Chew that same month, several other accusations of sexual misappropriation continued to emerge. New York Times even wrote a piece exposing former employees revelations regarding Batali's harassments.

It was even claimed that a security footage revealed Batali groping and kissing an unconscious woman in the VIP room during a 2008 party.
