The daytime show is drawing to a close after seven seasons in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations about Mario Batali (which he denies), but it's not over just yet.
“The mood is a little sad around here to be honest with you,” Clinton said. “There is a lot of people who work really hard on this show and really believe in this show and we’re all going to miss this show very, very much.”
They also clarified what's left for The Chew in its waning weeks.
Repeats will air from May 28 through June 1 because of Memorial Day, followed by a final two weeks of new episodes, with the last day of taping set for June 14. The last show will air either on June 14 or 15, according to Clinton.
Symon said that the last day of shooting “could get a little crazy." And that prompted Hall to add, "You totally need to watch that show!”
Ben Sherwood, president of Disney ABC Television, said in a statement provided to People. "While this is the right decision for our business, it is also bittersweet. For seven years The Chew has delighted audiences by delivering innovative food segments in an entertaining atmosphere. We applaud and thank Gordon Elliott, Aimee Householder, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and the entire cast and crew for their great work and amazing run. And we wish them the very best.”
