Daytime talk show The Real has been renewed for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons at Fox TV stations.
The show, hosted by Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, airs on all Fox-owned stations and is syndicated nationally. Encores air nightly on BET.
The Real has been nominated for both an Emmy and an NAACP Image Award.
“Since 2010-11 season, 23 talk shows have launched and ’The Real’ and ‘Steve Harvey’ are the only two series to last four or more seasons. While there are other panel talk series on the air, what truly makes ‘The Real’ stand out from the pack is that it is comprised of four very strong, very authentic and very engaging hosts whose chemistry is unrivaled. Fox has been with us since the start, and we are thrilled that together we have built a strong franchise that will continue to entertain, inform and inspire viewers for years and years to come," said Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “
“On one hand, it’s very gratifying to be renewing a program that started as a test. On the other hand, it doesn’t matter how it got here. Warner Bros. set out to fill a void and it fit our audience perfectly. Congrats to the cast and crew," said Frank Cicha, Senior Vice President, Programming, Fox Television Stations.
Executive producer Rachel Miskowiec said: “This season has been a thrill. Going live showcases Adrienne, Loni, Jeannie, and Tamara in the best light. They’re able to address the tough questions and the headlines as they break. The news cycle is only getting faster and we’re looking forward to keeping up with the hottest stories and booking more guests to contribute to the conversation."
