CBS is done with the talk: The network has canceled its daytime show “The Talk” after 15 seasons.

“The Talk,” which airs live at 2 PM ET/1 PM PDT, will end the current season and end its run with a shortened final season from September to December. The show's current hosting panel – Amanda Kloots, Akbar Gbajabiamila, Jerry O'Connell, Sheryl Underwood, and moderator Natalie Morales – are set to return.

“The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by bringing daytime talk back to CBS in a refreshing, award-winning format,” CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach and CBS Studios President David Stapf said in a joint statement. . Over the years, it has been a staple of CBS's top-rated daytime programming lineup because it brought important, entertaining and timely topics and discussions into living rooms around the world.

CBS is developing a new daytime television series called “The Gates,” the first of its kind with a majority-Black cast, which will likely replace “The Talk” in its timeslot if the new show moves forward.

The network also recognized the show's former co-hosts, including Julie Chen Moonves, the show's original anchor who departed in 2018, shortly after the firing of her husband, CBS president Leslie Moonves; “Roseanne” alum Sarah Gilbert, co-creator; mother of musician and TV star Sharon Osbourne; And former “Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who left the show in 2021 after a long hiatus.

O'Connell and Gbajabiamila joined “The Talk” in 2021 as the show's first permanent co-hosts, replacing former Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth and Sharon Osbourne, who departed that year after a controversial on-air exchange about race with Underwood. Kloots joined the show with Welteroth in January, replacing Marie Osmond. Underwood, the show's longest-serving co-host, joined the show for its second season in 2011.
