Fashion Police is being put on hiatus by E! and the three upcoming episodes that were scheduled to shoot in the spring are being scrapped.
The delay will give the show’s team time to recast the positions vacated by Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne, as well as reboot the franchise, according to THR.
“With the benefit of hindsight, we definitely brought it back too soon,” NBCUniversal Lifestyle Networks Group president Frances Berwick said.
“There’s a lot that’s frivolous about the whole Oscar, Emmy, Golden Globe parade, and then at the heart of it, there’s some great, creative work,” Frances added. “E! is not a network that takes itself seriously.”
Here is the network’s official statement: “E!’s comedy series Fashion Police is going on hiatus and will return in September. We look forward to taking this opportunity to refresh the show before the next awards season. Our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, along with Executive Producer Melissa Rivers, will continue their roles as we evolve the show into its next chapter for the legions of “Fashion Police” fans around the world.”
