AE Intervention

After eight years, A&E is cutting off Intervention.

The Emmy-winning docu-series chronicling real-life addicts and their efforts to get sober will conclude this summer.

“As Intervention comes to an end, we’re proud to have paved the way for such an original and groundbreaking series,” said David McKillop, executive vp of programming for A&E Network. “We’re honored to have been a part of the 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, leading to the 156 individuals that are currently sober to this day.”

The final five episodes air starting June 13. Addiction specialists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan and Donna Chavous will each return for the series’ final run, along with Ken Seeley who “comes back for one of the most difficult and dramatic episodes in the series’ history.”
