E! Cancels 'I Am Cait'

Ground-breaking reality show I Am Cait which following the transgender journey of Caitlyn Jenner and produced by Bunim/Murray Productions has been cancelled after just two seasons. Low ratings cited as reason for the cancellation. 


With the numbers way down, the future for Bunim/Murray Productions’ I Am Cait had looked uncertain after its second season ended on April 24. But there was no official word from either Jenner or E!. 

On Tuesday, both parties announced the news that the show is no more. Jenner made his announcement via Twitter. 



"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," says E! Entertainment in a statement announcing the cancellation.
"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".

No longer having a show of her own, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion will be appearing on the third season of Amazon’s award-winning Transparent, show creator Jill Soloway announced back in April. Transparent airs on M-Net on the M-Net Edge (DStv 102) channel throughout Africa.

Caitlyn Jenner will be resuming her appearance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
