What has the Bates family said about the show cancellation?

The Bates family told US Weekly their thoughts on the show’s cancellation.

“As the next year begins, our family will be experiencing a lot of new changes. One of the biggest changes for us is that the network will be moving toward producing more scripted family shows and will not be renewing a contract to film new Bringing Up Bates episodes.

“We realize God’s timing is always perfect, and we are looking forward to what the future holds for our own family, as well as the network!”

The cancellation of the show comes just over a month following the Bate’s family friend Josh Duggar’s guilty verdict.

Duggar was found guilty back in December 2021 on two child pornography charges.
