According to Variety, the Nick Cannon Show will not be renewed for another season. Cannon revealed the talk show was canceled during the March 10 episode.
The show’s staff was surprised by the news and told about the cancellation on March 10 before the show.
Furthermore, the staff was also told that it would be the final day of taping. The Nick Cannon Show reportedly had low ratings, and the decision was made not to renew the talk show.

The co-presidents of Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, released a statement noting the talk show’s cancelation.
“It’s never easy to cancel a production with clear potential,” read the statement. “But after a great deal of deliberation and examining various options, we have made the difficult business decision to end production on ‘Nick Cannon.’ We plan to offer viewers original episodes of the daytime talk show through the remainder of this season.Our thanks go to the very talented Nick Cannon and our wonderful production team, and we wish Nick continued success with his many hit ventures.”
The show was previously going hiatus for five weeks so Cannon could fill his commitments to his other projects such as The Masked Singer and Wild’ N Out. The break was supposed to begin one week after the news of the show’s cancellation. The crew was supposed to return in April for the rest of the season.
The show is filmed in New York, and Cannon, who has his eighth child on the way, is based in Los Angeles and had commuted for the talk show.
The canceled talk show will air previously tapped episodes until May.
