The Queen Latifah Show stands cancelled after its run of two seasons. The remaining episodes of the show will only be produced until the end of 2014 and in March next year, fresh episodes will stop airing.
Though the actual reasons for the show’s cancellation are yet to be confirmed, the cancellation itself is definite. Queen Latifah aka Dana Owens, the host of the show, even posted a letter on her Facebook page thanking herself for the way the show has gone, thus indicating that things were indeed coming to a standstill. The note also gave due credit to her team.
Just a little note to say Thank You…
Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running.
Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed “True Grit”!
Your Family, Partners, Staff and Crew showed up with you every step of the way. Be very proud of that! Not everyone can say the same.
You can also say you have been a blessing to and been blessed by amazing guests and incredible audiences for this show.
We truly changed people’s lives for the better.
So… STAY POSITIVE, STAY STRONG, and most importantly, STAY OPEN… There is so much more God has in store!
P.S. This letter is for me, my staff, my crew, and everyone who was by my side for this incredible journey. The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome…believe in yourself and continue to fly.”
In addition to this note from Latifah, the producers of the show, SPT, too issued a statement saying, “We want to thank Dana, the producers and the entire staff of The Queen Latifah Show for creating a program that we are all proud of. Thank you also to our terrific station partners and advertisers who supported the show.”
With Jada Pinkett-Smith as the executive producer, the Queen Latifah Show had gone on air last year and this was only its second season. Even at the end of the first season, rumors were rife that a second season would not go on the floor. At that time, Sony had refuted the reports. This time around though, it sure seems like the show has met its end.
