Maury is coming to an end after 31 years on television.
Updated Sunday morning:
NBCUniversal on Sunday confirmed that its daytime syndicated talk show Maury will be wrapping with the current season, saying that it was a mutual decision between the studio and veteran host Maury Povich to end the talker made when Maury was most recently renewed in 2020 through the 2021-22 season.
“Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the farewell season for the show, and while his retirement is bittersweet, we are so happy for him to be able to spend more time on the golf course,” Tracie Wilson, EVP, NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, said in a statement to Deadline. “Maury is a television icon, a pop culture legend and we couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of his incredible career.”
“Six years ago when I was ready to retire, my the NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show,” he said. “Even though I told them I was ready for assisted living, out of loyalty to NBCUniversal and my more than 100 staff and crew members, Tracie Wilson and I agreed to one more deal. I’m so proud of my relationship with NBCUniversal and all those who worked on the Mauryshow but as I occasionally tell my guests on Maury,‘Enough, already!’”
Easily considered the longest-running daytime talk show hosted by Maury Povich.
According to PEOPLE the talk show series will end production this season.
Original episodes of the series will air through September with the show living on in syndication in the future.
The series was last renewed two years ago through the 2021-2022 television season, according to a press release from NBCUniversal that was obtained by PEOPLE.
Povich’s career began when he served as a radio reporter in Washington, D.C., per TVLine. He later gained fame as the host of A Current Affair in 1986, where he stayed until 1990.
Maury began in 1991 as The Maury Povich Show, before its title was shortened in 1998.
The series deals with an array of hot-button topics and social issues centered on Povich’s guests as well as the in-studio audience.
This news comes on the heels of Nick Cannon’s talk show and The Good Dish both canceled after just one season each.
Wendy William’s show is being canceled, and news of The Real also coming to an end.
