Just a few hours after TLC announced the cancellation of “Kate Plus 8,” former reality star and Kate Gosselin’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin has accepted happily with the cancellation. He is “very relieved” that his kids will be away from the cameras, he tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “I hope they can have more private family moments,” he added. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.”
Jon and Kate Gosselin burst into the national spotlight with their original reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 which premiered in April, 2007. It featured the Gosselin family — mom, dad, a set of twins, and a set of sextuplets. It became a ratings blockbuster for TLC. The show rank rose as Jon and Kate’s marriage was exposed in front of the cameras. After they announced their separation in June, 2009, the show changed the title into Kate Plus 8 which shows the following condition of the mom and her children without Jon. Responding the condition of his ex-family after Kate Plus 8 cancellation, Jon said, “I have no clue what her next move is. I hope she dedicates more time to the kids now and I wish her the best as she goes forward with whatever career she wants to pursue.”
TLC announced that it will not renew Kate Plus 8 for another season. The show which began as Jon & Kate Plus 8 and originally followed Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight demon-spawn children, has reached fame and inspired tabloid stories. After Jon and Kate’s break up in 2009, the show was renamed Kate Plus 8 and it still flowed with the previous stories. The show is currently in its eighth season and it will not be renewed to the ninth season. However, TLC may still arrange the occasional special to keep us updated on how crazy Kate is and how cute those kids acts are.
At the end of this season, Kate Plus 8 will have filmed 150 episodes, what TLC calls “an exceptional milestone.” TV’s original reality mom has lost a job, and so have her children. Audiences were first introduced to Kate, husband Jon, and their eight children in 2007 with the special Surviving Sextuplets and Twins. Jon and Kate welcomed twins Cara and Madelyn in 2000 and after using fertility treatments to get pregnant, the couple welcomed six more children in 2004: Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel. The special was so popular with viewers that the network decided to give the family their own show. Kate claims that she’s happy about her divorce and the state of her life and maybe it’s best if she takes a break from TV for a while

A statement from TLC reads, “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.” The show’s final episode is set to air September 12th and the Gosselin family is expected to still make appearances on the network in the future. “TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future,” the statement said.
