TLC has cancelled The Willis Family after two seasons. In the wake of family patriarch Toby Willis‘ arrest for child rape, the cabler has decided not to pursue a third season of the reality series.
“We are shocked to hear the news,” TLC said in a statement to People.
While the cancellation has only just been confirmed following the charges, The Willis Family was reportedly axed back in May, according to sources:
“The family was alerted of the cancellation back in may 2016. The network performed extensive background checks on all the family [members] and found no issues. Obviously this is something they were never aware of.”
