It’s hard to believe that this entrepreneur series has been on the air for over a decade and has become a staple of the ABC lineup. Could this be the show’s last year or is it certain to return? Will Shark Tank be cancelled or renewed for season 12? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC reality TV series, Shark Tank features entrepreneurs seeking investments from a group of savvy, wealthy investors who are “self-made” tycoons. The regular “sharks” are Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner. They offer everyday people a shot at the American dream and the possibility of striking business deals beyond their wildest dreams. Guest entrepreneurs in Shark Tank season 11 include Katrina Lake, Daniel Lubetzky, Maria Sharapova, Anne Wojcicki, Rohan Oza, and Matt Higgins.
