“Fashion Police” is ending on E! after a 22-year run, Variety reports.

The show has covered the fashion highs and lows of celebrities since its debut in 1995.

After co-creator and host Joan Rivers’ death in 2014, the show featured a rotating door of hosts including Kathy Griffin, who promptly left the show after seven episodes.

“My style does not fit with the creative direction of the show,” Griffin tweeted at the time.

In another controversial moment, Giuliana Rancic came under fire for remarking singer and actress Zendaya’s hair looked like it smelled of “patchouli oil” and “weed.” Kelly Osbourne resigned from the show shortly after.

Joan’s daughter Melissa, who has served as executive producer since the beginning, joined as co-host in 2015.

In season six, Margaret Cho and NeNe Leaks joined the couch along with Rancic and Brad Goreski.

“Joan’s beloved no-holds-barred style fueled the franchise’s clever approach to fashion and comedy, and we are incredibly proud of its long-running success,” E! President Adam Stotsky said in a statement. “We are also especially grateful to Melissa, as well as Giuliana, Brad, Nene, Margaret and the entire ‘Fashion Police’ team, who have continued to deliver the laughs and make this iconic franchise truly one of a kind.”

“Thank you to E! for having the vision to see the potential of Fashion Police which changed both the entertainment and fashion industries,” Melissa said in a statement. “I am truly proud to be part of this legacy.”

The final episode will include never-before-seen footage of Joan including an ’80s-themed episode.

“Fashion Police: The Farewell” airs on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 8 p.m.
