We're not going to lie, normally when news breaks about TLC's Kate Plus 8, we're not really all that attentive to it. Today, however, our ears certainly perked up when it was announced that TLC would not be renewing the series, which has been air for about seven years now.

The network released the following statement re: the cancellation, "TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8. By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone."

The statement unfortunately does go on to day we're not completely done with hearing about the show yet – after its end, the network plans on "checking in" with the family periodically for TV specials they can try to make more money off of.

Well, we can't say we're too broken up about this...mostly because we're just hoping this can make room for more My Strange Addiction episodes.
