“I Am Cait” Reportedly Canceled

“Caitlyn just wasn’t relatable," claims a production insider for the E! series.

Caitlyn Jenner is still garnering attention, both for her work advocating for the trans community and her controversial support for the Republican Party.

But now comes reports that Jenner’s E! reality series I Am Cait will not be renewed for a third season.

The culprit is a familiar one: Low ratings

“There just weren’t enough viewers,” a production insider reportedly told Radar. “The show can’t compete with other programming.”

The Season Two premiere in March garnered less than 750,000 viewers.

Another complaint, says the source, is that “Caitlyn just wasn’t relatable. Trans viewers did not see her as one of them.”

On the show’s second season, Jenner joined trans advocates like Jennifer Boylan, Shandi Moore, Zachary Drucker and Candis Cayne on a bus trip, and discussions often got heated. While arguments on how conservatives feel about sexual minorities or whether the t-word can be reclaimed might not be “sexy,” it was certainly refreshing to see such matters discussed on a reality show.

Earlier this year I am Cait was pulled from TV stations in Africa after viewers complained about the subject matter.

A spokesperson for E! says “no decision has been made” about the show’s future.

Jenner is slated to appear on the next season of Amazon Prime’s Transparent.
