The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled after two seasons, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The daytime talk show hosted by Latifah (real name Dana Owens) will air new episodes through March before going off the air for good. "We want to thank Dana, the producers and the entire staff of The Queen Latifah Show for creating a program that we are all very proud of," Sony Television Pictures, which distributed the show, said in a statement. "Thank you also to our terrific station partners and advertisers who supported the show."
The rapper and Oscar-nominated actress, 44, confirmed the news in a lengthy letter to herself and her crew posted on her Facebook page. "Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running. Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed 'true grit'!" she wrote. "Your family, partners, staff and crew showed up with you every step of the way. Be very proud of that! Not everyone can say the same. You can also say you have been a blessing to and been blessed by amazing guests and incredible audiences for this show. We truly changed people's lives for the better."
"Stay positive, stay strong and most importantly, stay open... There is so much more God has in store," Latifah continued. "P.S. This letter is for me, my staff, my crew, and everyone who was by my side for this incredible journey. The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome ... believe in yourself and continue to fly."
This marked Latifah's second stab at daytime TV. Her first self-titled talk show debuted in syndication in 1999 and ran through August 2001.
