E! confirms there will not be another season of "I Am Cait"
Caitlyn Jenner's reality show ran for two seasons on the network
Caitlyn Jenner’s “I Am Cait” will not be having a third season, CNN confirms.
Jenner broke the news herself on Tuesday via Twitter.
“After 2 amazing seasons of @IAmCait, it’s time for the next adventure. Thank you E! & thank you to the best girlfriends I could ask for!” Jenner wrote.
“I Am Cait” premiered in July 2015 to much praise from activists who billed it as a major moment for transgender visibility in mainstream media. Jenner’s personal politics, however, at times made her the target for backlash from the community that once supported her.
In a September 2015 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the host confronted Jenner, a Republican, about her preferred party’s views on LGBTQ issues.
Season 2 of her reality show, which experienced a drop in ratings, largely focused on Jenner’s education on transgender issues.
The season came to a close in April.
“We are incredibly proud of the two seasons of ‘I Am Cait,’ a groundbreaking docu-series that sparked an important and unprecedented global conversation about transgender people, their struggles and triumphs,” read a statement from the E! network. “Caitlyn and E! have mutually decided not to move forward with another season at this time. She will always remain a part of the E! family, and we look forward to continue following her journey as she appears on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’”
