Groundbreaking talk show axed after seven seasons

American talk show Full Frontal With Samantha Bee has been axed after seven seasons.

Network TBS confirmed that the show would not be returning, calling it a ‘ difficult, business-based decision’.

And a statement from Bee’s representative said: ‘Bee made television history in the late-night space, paving the way for female voices in what has traditionally been, and continues to be a male dominated landscape.

‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee consistently broke barriers with Sam and her team boldly using political satire to entertain, inform and empower viewers, while embracing critically underrepresented stories, particularly about women.’

In their statement, TBS said: ‘We celebrate this extraordinarily talented cast and crew and look forward to exploring new opportunities to work with them in the future.’

Bee – a former correspondent on The Daily Show – began the show in 2016 and made a total of 218 episodes.
