The Nate Berkus Show: canceled or renewed? information

Nate Berkus Show canceledWhen The Nate Berkus Show was cancelled earlier this year, some thought that Berkus’ old friend Oprah Winfrey should bring his TV series over to the OWN channel. Well, that’s exactly what’s happened.

Unfortunately, OWN has merely picked up the existing two seasons of Nate Berkus and won’t be producing any new installments. Though local stations can continue to air the Berkus show until September 7th, many have already pulled it off the air.

OWN has also purchased the rights to show the first five seasons of Rachael Ray, a series that continues to run in daytime.

Here’s the press release:
