TLC has cancelled "Kate Plus 8," the network announced Monday. The network will continue to run the show until the end of the current season, stopping the program on its 150th episode.
"TLC canceled it. I'm sorry," Gosselin told her Twitter followers Monday. "We've had a great run! Six years of whirlwind fun-filled adventures. Thanks to TLC and our many, many supportive and diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!"
The show followed Gosselin's life as she took care of her eight children. It was the successor of "Jon and Kate Plus 8," which ran before Jon and Kate Gosselin got a divorce. The two had a set of twins in 2000, then gave birth to six more children in 2004. "Jon and Kate Plus 8" was also aired on TLC.
"TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future,” a statement from the network said.
"As is very typical for me, I am choosing to see the positive in this situation and I am excited to consider the many more invigorating opportunities that may come my way," Gosselin added via Twitter. "I poured my entire self into the last six years of Kate + 8 and I can't wait to have the chance to challenge myself again with future endeavors!"
Gosselin also appeared on the "Dancing with the Stars," where she became a polarizing character thanks to her bossy attitude and poor performance.
The television star has also published four books on parenting and life-management. She often goes on tour and speaks to adoring fans, and the cancellation of the show will likely not permanently harm her income stream. She needs money to take care of all those children!
"I hope to have more time for motivational speaking, book writing and other fun work opportunities that come my way," she wrote. "And maybe even some dating? We wish our fans well. And remember, this is not 'goodbye.' I prefer to say 'See you around!'"
The last episode of "Kate Plus 8" will air on Sept. 12.
