ABC has confirmed the renewal and release of The Chew Season 7 — September 5, 2017.
Despite the renewal, co-host Daphne Oz has departed the series. In a statement to TVLine, she said:
It has been so much fun having lunch with you on TV’s most delicious daytime show for the past six seasons, and I am immensely grateful to have found dear friends in my co-hosts and our team. I have had the great privilege of growing up at our family table, and have shared some huge milestones along the way — including the birth of my first two children, and recent announcement of a third on the way! — and am lucky to have had The Chew as a bright beginning to my career.”
Chew creator/executive producer Gordon Elliott said:
She is one of the greatest natural broadcasters I have ever worked with. The moment she sat at the table with Mario, Clinton, Michael and Carla, I knew we had a great television show. Her chemistry, honesty and intelligence are her trademarks, and they will stand with her wherever she goes.”
An ABC spokespersons says there are no plans to replace Oz moving forward.
