The ongoing seventh season of The Chew is going to be its last one, ABC confirmed in a statement. According to The Wrap, the television network wants to free up more space for a new third hour broadcast of its widely popular talk show, Good Morning America.

The talk show will be extended into the afternoon time slot as well following the cancellation of The Chew.

“While this is the right decision for our business, it is also bittersweet,” Disney ABC Television Group, Ben Sherwood, stated in the same statement.

The unique talk show mixed with food format of the show quickly became a huge hit among the audience with the program propelling to big success over the course of its seven seasons. According to Gordon Elliot, the creator of the show, their team truly created a television history with the show.

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

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.

Several other allegations of sexual misconduct from the chef continued to emerge, even though he exited The Chew that same month. New York Times even wrote a piece exposing revelations from former employees regarding Batali's harassments.
