According to reports, NBCUniversal will be canceling Maury after 30 seasons. The news comes after word of other syndicated daytime talk shows like Judge Jerry going off the air.

Debuting in 1991 under Paramount Domestic Television as The Maury Povich Show, the show was shorted in the mid-1990s to Maury and taken over by Studio USA before NBCUniversal acquired the show.

Renewed back in 2020, the current 2021-2022 season of Maury will be the show’s last season following a mutual decision between NBCUniversal and veteran host and executive producer Maury Povich. New original episodes will air until September, after which repeats of Maury will be shown in syndication.

“Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the farewell season for the show, and while his retirement is bittersweet, we are so happy for him to be able to spend more time on the golf course,” Tracie Wilson, EVP, NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, said in a statement to Deadline. “Maury is a television icon, a pop-culture legend and we couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of his incredible career.”

“Six years ago when I was ready to retire, the NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show,” he said. “Even though I told them I was ready for assisted living, out of loyalty to NBCUniversal and my more than 100 staff and crew members, Tracie Wilson and I agreed to one more deal. I’m so proud of my relationship with NBCUniversal and all those who worked on the Maury show but as I occasionally tell my guests on Maury, ‘Enough, already!’”
