E! is reportedly snipping Caitlyn Jenner’s reality show “I Am Cait” from its television lineup.
According to a statement from network executives, the decision to cancel the reality show about Jenner’s life as a man who identifies as a woman was mutual.
“Caitlyn and E! have mutually decided not to move forward with another season at this time,” the statement reads. “She [sic] will always remain a part of the E! family, and we look forward to continue following her [sic] journey as she [sic] appears on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’”
The decision may have had something to do with the show’s poor ratings, which had been dismal from the start. Despite an avalanche of positive media coverage surrounding the show’s debut, the viewers just weren’t all that interested in watching a show about a man pretending to be a woman.
Jenner also created a bit of controversy earlier this year when he came out of the closet as a supporter of former presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Several of Jenner’s reality show co-stars reportedly wanted to quit the show over the former Olympian’s Cruz endorsement. Trans advocates also skewered the gold medal-winning decathlete for supporting the Texas Republican.
“I Am Cait” was not Jenner’s first reality TV stint. Prior to announcing that he was a woman, Jenner was married to Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner and regularly appeared on the hit reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
