NBC has cancelled The New Celebrity Apprentice (aka The Celebrity Apprentice) after 8 seasons, 15 seasons overall, including The Apprentice.
Speaking to TVLine, NBC chief Robert Greenblatt confirmed The Apprentice will not return for Season 9 (Season 16 overall) anytime soon, consigning the show to the cancellation graveyard.
While unwilling to use to word “cancelled” for PR reasons, Greenblatt is unable to mask his axing of The Apprentice:
“There is no plan for The Apprentice. It’s not cancelled [it really is], but I don’t think you will see it back anytime soon.”
