Extreme Weight Loss has NOT been cancelled, in fact it’s been prospectively renewed for Season 6, according to series host and trainer Chris Powell.
ABC sparked confusion by labeling the tonight’s Season 5 finale as the “final episode,” which led many viewers to worry (and rightly so) that it also serves as the series finale.
However, while the network has yet to announce the renewal, Powell asserts “we are working on season 6″ with casting already closed.
Based on Powell’s comments, Extreme Weight Loss Season 6 is moving forward, at least from a developmental perspective, though history dictates that networks can always throw a spanner in the works.
Stay tuned for the all-important formal renewal announcement/updates as we continue to monitor the status of Extreme Weight Loss…
