According to a report from Variety, Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal will not be returning to TBS; the show has been canceled while the network reshapes its programming.
“As we continue to shape our new programming strategy, we’ve made some difficult, business-based decisions,” TBS said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“’Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,’ will not return to TBS. We are proud to have been the home to ‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’ and thank Sam, and the rest of the Emmy-nominated team for their groundbreaking work,” the statement continued. “We celebrate this extraordinarily talented cast and crew and look forward to exploring new opportunities to work with them in the future.”
The show’s Twitter account shared the news:
“Full Frontal is leaving TBS to go spend more time with her family,” the show tweeted. “After 7 seasons, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will not be returning to TBS this fall. We’re so thankful for our loyal audience, our amazing team, and that we got to annoy the right people every week—that there wasn’t wrestling or baseball or a very special episode of Big Bang. To our loyal fans – we love you, you’re very special. Go home, and go home in peace.”

Bee made headlines in 2018 for calling then-first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—.” Bee ultimately apologized but was quick to renege.
“Last year, you caught some flak, a fair amount of flak for those comments about Ivanka Trump. What did you learn from that?” NBC News anchor Craig Melvin asked in 2019.
“I didn’t learn much,” Bee responded, sparking laughter from Melvin and co-host Al Roker. “I mean, let’s not get crazy. I still have a show to do… Yeah, no, I didn’t learn all that much from that.”
Fox Across America host Jimmy Failla took a shot at Bee’s show on Twitter.
“The Samantha Bee show has been canceled. Guantanamo Bay Interrogators currently scrambling to find another legalized torture method.”
