Bringing Up Bates Cancelation
The reality series Bringing Up Bates will not be returning as UPtv has canceled the long-running show. However they did not give reasons for canceling it. But the Bates Family followers are not having any of it. Bates family followers aren’t convinced that UpTV decided, after much filming, to stop the show’s next season for programming purposes. Followers are of the opinion that the move toward scripted content is something the network would have already had in the works. That doesn’t seem to be the case, since the network was allegedly already filming. So what exactly prompted UpTV’s decision to cancel the longstanding reality TV show?
The Bates Family followers on Reddit are of the opinion that there is a scandal brewing and Uptv does not want to be involved in it.
Somethings up. I think someone at UPtv was alerted of a scandal breaking and they wanted to get out ahead, same way Oprah cancelled the Duggar appearance all those years ago when she was tipped off.gaslight queen
With the outbreak of the cancelation news, the Bates family shared their reaction in a statement to People. “We realize God’s timing is always perfect, and we are looking forward to what the future holds for our own family, as well as the network!”
