A&E cancels “Intervention” after 13 seasons
“Intervention” has lasted 13 years on A&E, an impressive run for the often times heartbreaking docuseries. Unfortunately the network has decided to pull the plug on the project, which will be ending this year.
A&E made the announcement earlier today stating that the series will come to a close after the final five episodes air this season. David McKillop, executive vp programming at A&E Network and Bio Channel said, “As Intervention comes to an end, we’re proud to have paved the way for such an original and groundbreaking series,” he added, “We’re honored to have been a part of the 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, leading to the 156 individuals that are currently sober to this day.”
The last five episoded will still air and are scheduled to begin on June 13 at 9 p.m. starting with what the network has built up as the most intense, “gripping” stories told to date. The show will exit with at least two Emmy nominations, both for their role in a reality series (the show one “outstanding reality series” back in 2009).
