After seven seasons, Gene Simmons' reality TV series Gene Simmons Family Jewels has been cancelled by A&E. According to Simmons, the decision to end the show stemmed from "scheduling conflicts."
The Simmons family said in a statement: "With KISS on tour and with my other business commitments, we have decided to draw the final curtain on our show . . . This is not the end of our story, it's the beginning of a new chapter."
For its part, the network thanked the family for appearing in the show.
"For seven great seasons, Gene, Shannon, Nick and Sophie have been part of the A&E family, and we could not be more proud of the unparalleled run of Gene Simmons Family Jewels," the network said in a statement originally issued exclusively to the Hollywood Reporter.
"On behalf of everyone at A&E, we'd like to thank the production team at Thinkfactory Media, Gene and his amazing family for their partnership, collaboration and for opening up their lives, warts-and-all, to us throughout the years."
