After seven seasons and more than 160 episodes, A&E is telling Gene Simmons Family Jewels to kiss off. “We could not be more proud of the unparalleled run of Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” the network said in a statement. “On behalf of everyone at A&E, we’d like to thank the production team at Thinkfactory Media, Gene and his amazing family for their partnership, collaboration and for opening up their lives, warts-and-all, to us throughout the years.”

The Simmons family said in a statement: “With Kiss on tour and with my other business commitments, we have decided to draw the final curtain on our show. It has been a wonderful, life-altering experience for our family, and after seven successful seasons, we feel it’s time to move on. A big thank you to A&E for allowing us to tell our story and a big thank you to our excellent producers Leslie Greif, Adam Freeman, Adam Reed and the team at Thinkfactory Media. This is not the end of our story, it’s the beginning of a new chapter. With love — Gene, Shannon, Sophie, and Nick.”
