Chelsea Handler’s show Chelsea Lately will air its final episode in August.
The hilarious late-night talk show has aired on E! for seven years. Handler says she has no regrets looking back on her show. In a statement she said, “I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years. I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I'm glad I went.” Her contract was slated to end in December but E! has decided to close it four months early.
Suzanne Kolb, President of E!, commended Handler and said, “We are very proud of Chelsea Lately’s long-running success and the unique space that the series carved out in late night television. Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition. Most of all, we are grateful to the Chelsea Lately team for making this show so special for seven years.”
Handler’s show brought a unique hilarity to late night television with unforgettable interviews with celebrities from Drake and Piers Morgan to the Kardashian/Jenner clans. Whoever the guest, they never knew what to expect when they hit the stage with her.
The show will celebrate its end for the entire month of August and the Chelsea Lately finale will air on Tuesday August 26 at 11/10c in an hour long special.
It’s not clear what’s next for Handler but we’ll definitely be looking out for her next amazing project.
