“I am Cait” will not return to E! for a third season.
The reality show starring Caitlyn Jenner has been ended mutually by the former Olympian and E!, according to Us Weekly.
Jenner took to Twitter to share the news, thanking all the people who were part of the show and teasing fans with a new “adventure.” Meanwhile, a representative for E! said they are proud of what the show was able to achieve in terms of raising awareness and sparking conversations about the plight of transgender people.
The announcement comes a couple of weeks after rumors started swirling about the show's cancellation.
Jenner's fans don't need to be sad about the cancellation, though, as the reality star will continue to be active on the small screen. Jenner will continue to be part of the long-running “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” according to Deadline.
Apart from reuniting onscreen with her ex-wife Kris Jenner, her daughters Kendall and Kylie, and her stepdaughters Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, Caitlyn will also appear in an upcoming episode of Amazon's “Transparent” season 3.
“I am Cait” premiered in July 2015. The unscripted series came several months after Caitlyn revealed during an interview with Diane Sawyer that she was transitioning to a woman. The interview was well-received, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with 16.9 million viewers. Caitlyn's series, however, did not fare as well. The premiere episode was able to get just 2.7 million viewers, and the viewership continued to decline after that.
The short-lived series also changed its focus by the second season, which may have contributed to its further decline. While the first season centered on Caitlyn's relationship with her family, the second one followed her on a cross-country trip with her friends.
The final episode of the series was aired in April.
