Cape Town – E! Entertainment (DStv 124) has cancelled Fashion Police with Melissa Rivers. The show will end in November with another special celebrating Joan Rivers, the show's infamous segments and most memorable moments.
The final Fashion Police episode entitled Fashion Police: The Farewell, will be broadcast on E! in America on Monday, 27 November and will be broadcast in South Africa and Africa on E! Entertainment on Wednesday, 29 November at 20:00.
After Joan Rivers' unexpected death in 2014, Fashion Police went off air for a hiatus but returned. The show then it switched to a format where it focused on the fashion of big Hollywood award shows and will sign off next month with the latest special that covered the PrimeTime Emmy Awards.
The final episode will feature the last appearance from the panel: Melissa Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho as well as surprise celebrity guests and will include highlights from Joan Rivers.
It will incorporate clips from an unaired episode featuring Joan and the panelists paying tribute to 80's fashions.
"What's been consistent through all the years has been a love of fashion, and that started with Joan Rivers," says Gary Snegaroff, the senior vice president for original production for Wilshire Studios that produces Fashion Police.
"The only thing she loved more than fashion was getting a laugh, so this combined her two loves. She always felt that fashion was something to be discussed, not to be taken too seriously, and that's the show we put together."
"We're going to take a look back and celebrate some of the show's most memorable moments and hosts and gags," said Adam Stotsky, E! Entertainment president.
"It's an opportunity to celebrate the franchise, celebrate Joan and how much we miss her, and pull back the curtain and show fans some things that they haven't seen."
Melissa, also an executive producer on Fashion Police, says: "I am so proud to have been a part of this show and am so proud that it’s part of my mother's legacy. It really changed, along with the red carpets, awards-show programming and fashion."
