The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced Wednesday it's cancelling Our America With Lisa Ling. The docu-series will conclude following its upcoming fifth season.
Our America was one of OWN’s original unscripted series, debuting in February 2011. The program focused on life in America. In a released statement, OWN President Sheri Salata said:
Over the past three years, Our America has cast a bright light into dark places, raised awareness of some of our country’s most controversial issues and provided a voice to those who are often not heard.
It has been an honor to be part of the launch and success of OWN, and I am exceptionally grateful to the network and to Oprah for allowing me to produce the show of my dreams.
Our America With Lisa Ling returns for its final season on May 29 at 10 pm EST on OWN.
