Starting Over is not yet officially cancelled, but is not expected to return this fall

There will most likely not be a fourth season of the groundbreaking syndicated, daytime reality series Starting Over.

That’s because a new live series, iVillage Live, “is expected to replace the syndication division’s reality strip “Starting Over” on the NBC stations that carry the self-help show,” according to TV Week. The series “is not expected to return for a fourth season this fall, but a spokesman for NBCU Domestic Television Distribution said, ‘No decision has been made on a fourth season’ for the show.”

As TV Week notes, this isn’t the first time the show has faced cancellation; before the series was renewed a year ago, it “was on the bubble.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
