“I Am Cait” won’t be returning for a third season.

On Tuesday, Caitlyn Jenner tweeted the news that her reality show would be ending after two seasons.

“After 2 amazing seasons of @IAmCait, it’s time for the next adventure. Thank you E! & thank you to the best girlfriends I could ask for!” Jenner writes.

“I Am Cait” was a spinoff series of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” that premiered in July 2015. The first season followed Jenner as she embarked on her transition journey and examined her relationships with her family. Its premiere episode brought in 2.7 million viewers, but its finale ended with only 500,000 viewers. In season two the focus changed to chronicle Jenner’s friend group, consisting mostly of transgender women including actress Candis Cayne, as they set out on a road trip. The shift in tone wasn’t the only change for the show as viewership for the second season premiere brought in a mere 745,000 viewers.

Kim Kardashian-West, Kanye West, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian all made appearances on the show.

“We are incredibly proud of the two seasons of I Am Cait, a groundbreaking docuseries that sparked an important and unprecedented global conversation about transgender people, their struggles and triumphs,” an E! spokesperson said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “Caitlyn and E! have mutually decided not to move forward with another season at this time. She will always remain a part of the E! family, and we look forward to continue following her journey as she appears on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’”

  • I guess she wants to free herself up in case Trump gives her that Trans Ambassador opportunity she wanted from Ted Cruz.

    Sorry Caitlyn, that gig gets cancelled for you in November, too!
