Chelsea Handler’s time spent interviewing Hollywood stars (and showering with some of them) is coming to an end. E! has announced that Chelsea Lately will end its seven-year run on August 26.
“We are very proud of Chelsea Lately’s long-running success and the unique space that the series carved out in late night television,” E! President Suzanne Kolb said in a press release. “Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition. Most of all, we are grateful to the Chelsea Lately team for making this show so special for seven years.”
The show will end after a “month-long celebration of special episodes and surprise guests leading up to the live series finale.”
“I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years,” Handler said in the release. “I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I’m glad I went.”
Until then, Chelsea Lately will continue to air weeknights at 11 p.m. on E!
