Jada Pinkett Smith's tell-all talk show Red Table Talk has been cancelled after five years on Facebook.
The family members discussed everything from sex and relationships to mental health issues, beauty tips to healthy living, with the most recent series coming to an end in December 2022.
There was no official word of an upcoming sixth season, but the show looked to be preparing for some new topics of discussion as recently as last week.
A post on Instagram asked viewers to share their own dating stories, discussing the concept of 'the one', communication issues and advice, but it's unclear whether responses will lead to anything further as Facebook's Watch originals group has now been shut down.
The move comes as Mina Lefevre, who was Head of Development and Programming at Meta, is leaving the company as part of the latest round of layoffs.
Facebook had already scaled back on its original programming, but it's now shifting its focus to creating VR experiences and as a result has scrapped all remaining FB Watch Originals - meaning there'll be no new episodes of Red Table Talk on the platform.
It's sad news for the show's 11 million followers on Facebook, many of whom will remember some of the most notable stars on the show including Jada's very own husband, Will Smith.
The actor appeared on the Facebook show to discuss Jada's 'entanglement' with singer August Alsina while she and Smith were separated.
The conversation garnered a lot of attention, with Jada admitting to thinking she and Smith were officially over, saying: "I was done with your a**. I was done with you."
"Marriages have that though," Smith responded.
The I Am Legend actor appeared on the chat show again for its most recent episode, where he 'took over' Red Table Talk with his kids to discuss the making of the movie Emancipation.
The hosts of the show don't appear to have commented on its cancellation at the time of writing (27 April), but fans could keep their fingers crossed for new episodes to appear elsewhere.
According to Deadline, Red Table Talk series producer Westbrook, co-founded by Jada and Will Smith, is currently looking for a new home for the show.
