November 8, 2012

Anderson Cooper’s show will be canceled at the end of this current season. Blair Stover has the details.

The rumor that “Anderson” would not continue past the current season was confirmed by Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. released a statement this week saying, “We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced.

We will continue to deliver top-quality shows throughout next summer.”

Anderson also released a statement regarding the show, “I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons. I am also grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.”

The last episode will be aired at the end of summer 2013.
