‘The Real’ Canceled: Season 8 Finale – Daytime Talk Show Ending
After eight years of syndication, The truthtime is up. The daytime talk show has been canceledaccording to our sister site Deadline.
The show’s current eighth season will be its last. A final release date is not yet known.
When The truth premiered in 2013, its panel of co-hosts included Tamera Mowry, Jeannie Mai, Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon and Loni Love. Since then, Braxton and Mowry have parted ways with the show, as has co-host Amanda Seales. Garcelle Beauvais is also currently a co-host.
Created by SallyAnn Salsano, The truth stands out from other daytime talk shows because its hosts “mirror local audiences and speak unabashedly what women really think,” according to the show’s official description. “Their unique perspectives come to life through their candid conversations on topics ranging from their personal lives and the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships.”
Additionally, the hosts were chosen because they “were all going through varying life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating, or singlehood, which relate to each woman’s own trials and tribulations.” Unlike other talk shows, each of the four hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites local audiences into their lives. Their fresh perspectives, youthful energy and passion are going to shake up the traditional talk show.
During its eight-season run, The truth won three Daytime Emmy Awards.
