It’s a wrap for Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s reality series Don’t Be Tardy — at least for now.

Bravo said Friday the Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff has been canceled after eight seasons. The series premiered in 2012, and followed the lives of Zolciak-Biermann, her husband Kroy Biermann and their six children — Brielle, 24, Ariana, 19, KJ, 9, Kash, 8, and twins Kane and Kaia, 7.

The network thanked the family and wished them well. “We have enjoyed watching the incredible journey of Kim, Kroy and their entire family who grew up right before our eyes,” a Bravo said in a statement. “We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share their life and all the touching moments with our audience. While Don’t Be Tardy will not be returning for another season, the Biermanns will always be part of the Bravo family and we look forward to seeing what’s next.”

The series started as a special titled Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding about Kim’s marriage to then-NFL player Kroy. The special clicked with viewers and was renewed for a second season as Don’t Be Tardy.

Season 8 ended in December 2020, but Bravo opted not to bring the show back. Despite the cancellation news, Kim and Kroy said Friday fans will see them on TV again “very soon.”

“The Biermann family is extremely grateful for their 13 year plus relationship with Bravo and NBC Universal,” the couple said in a statement. “We greatly appreciate and value the support from all of our fans as we continue to grow in the entertainment industry. In times of significant growth, there are steps that have to be strategically taken, but rest assured, you will see the Biermann family on your TV screens again very soon. Grab yourself a glass of wine and stay tuned.”

Don’t Be Tardy was produced by Truly Original. Kim and Kroy served as executive producers, alongside Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Michelle Schiefen, Tony Biancosino, and Michael Meinecke.

Kim was part of the original RHOA cast when the show launched in 2008. She left the series after five seasons in 2012, but later returned as a “friend” on season 10 in 2017.
