The network said in a statement, "TLC has decided not to renew another season of 'Kate Plus 8.' By the end of this season 'Kate Plus 8' will have hit the 150 episode mark (including 'Jon & Kate Plus 8'); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future."
Kate released a statement via Twitter thanking TLC for her years on the air. "We've had a great run! Six years of whirlwind funfilled adventures thanks to TLC and our many many supportive & diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future," she wrote.
Season 7 of 'Kate Plus 8' (well, the third featuring Kate raising the kids solo) premiered Mon., Aug. 8 to disappointing ratings, drawing just 1 million viewers.
This year, the show has begun focusing on Kate's forays into the dating world. Gosselin said on 'Today' last week that her kids have started encouraging her to date more.
