It is an end of an era, indeed. After seven years, Kate Plus 8, formerly called Jon & Kate Plus 8, finally signs off with its series finale tonight. Last month, TLC announced the cancellation of the series, which stars Kate Gosselin and her eight children with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, with this 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.”
The show concludes its run by looking back at some of the family’s favorite memories from birthday parties to family outings. Kate also discusses her very public divorce. “You can say the show did it, which I’ll always say it didn’t. I mean, all the signs were always there. If you turned on a camera and caught it, great. If not, it would have happened anyway.”
The series finale airs tonight on TLC at 9 p.m. Will you be watching? Are you sad to see the show go? Or do you think its exit is long overdue? Sound off in the comments.
