The long-running daytime talk show Maury will be ending production this season. The show aired for 31 years straight, with its first premiere in 1991 under the name The Maury Povich Show.

Deadline reports that NBCUniversal confirmed the end of production for the show. It is said that the decision was a mutual understanding between the studio and veteran host Maury Povich. The show was most recently renewed in 2020 through the 2021-22 season.

Tracie Wilson, EVP, NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, gave the following statement to the outlet.

“Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the farewell season for the show, and while his retirement is bittersweet, we are so happy for him to be able to spend more time on the golf course,”

“Maury is a television icon, a pop culture legend and we couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of his incredible career.”

So far, the Maury has 30 seasons on-air, with more than 3,600 episodes produced. After initially titled Maury Povich Show, it was re-titled Maury and subsequently acquired by NBC.

Not too long ago, NBCUniversal pulled the plug on Nick Cannon’s talk show and The Good Dish. Cannon’s hows only lasted for one season on the network.
