Bosses at E! network announced in March (14) they would not renew the TV show for a new season after running the program for seven years.
The last episode of Chelsea Lately will be broadcast on 26 August (14), but the finale will be preceded by a month of special shows featuring surprise guests.
E! President Suzanne Kolb says, "We are very proud of Chelsea Lately's long-running success... Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night (television) with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition."
Handler adds, "I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years. I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I'm glad I went."
