After seven seasons, the hour-long cooking show The Chew will be replaced with one more hour of Good Morning America.
The current hosts of the show, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, and Michael Symon, all expressed their gratitude towards fans of the show on social media, in addition to how bummed they are that the show was not being renewed.

The hosts have loved working on the show and connecting with the audience, so they’re sad that it’s been canceled.
I am so grateful for all the good times and incredible friends I have made over the past seven years on @thechew. It has truly been an amazing ride.

Despite their disappointment, the hosts have tried to remain positive. They’ve all thanked their fans and followers, and they’re looking forward to what’s to come in the future.
Thank you for all your kind messages. Yes, The Chew was canceled. Huge bummer, but that’s the TV biz. Michael, Carla and…
It’s kind of heartbreaking to see how upset the hosts are, but I’m sure they’ll go on to do more great projects in the coming years.
As you may have heard by now we found out today this is our final season of The Chew … I Just want to say thank you to…
In addition to the current hosts of the show expressing their thoughts about the cancellation, the fans were definitely not silent about it either! Many fans took to the Internet to put forth their ideas and thoughts about the cancellation.

We agree, Lauren. We agree. Talking about food is way better than talking about the current news.
You should be expanding the "chew" rather than expanding a show that is not watchable. There is no chemistry between the anchors and should actually be cancelled. You are making a huge mistake by cancelling the "chew" Seriously the dumbest move yet by ABC.

Solid input from Wanda, here. Who can relate?
Cannot believe The Chew is being cancelled. Watch you every day. Best daytime show on TV. ABC is making a big mistake. Cancel The View!

Some fans had opinions about which shows should be canceled instead of The Chew. Why do they have to cancel any shows, though? The current lineup is great!
Was very upset to hear The Chew was cancelled. As a person who found the love of cooking later in life, always looked forward to the recipes and fun that all of you shared with us. I will miss all of you and I think the Food Network should continue your show!! 🥂

Aww, we find the sentiment in Rosalinda’s kind words with this one. Cooking lovers will surely miss this show! But who knows, maybe another network will pick up the show.
The cancellation of the show was addressed by the hosts themselves, on a live episode of The Chew. “It’s an interesting day here at The Chew because most of you might have heard, some of you might not have, but The Chew has not been picked up for an eighth season—our seventh season is our last,” Clinton Kelly stated. This announcement was followed by boos from the audience [addressed at ABC for refusing to pick up the show for an 8th season].
A huge thank you to #TheChew's incredible fans. “You guys are unbelievable and you made it so special for us. You let us into your homes every day at 1 o’clock to laugh, and to teach, and to have a great time. It’s been great.” 🍏❤️ pic.twitter.com/ULnKvyDqkz
