U.S. network A&E is ending its Emmy-winning series Intervention (pictured) after more than eight years, announcing that the five episodes starting June 13 will be the last.

Thirteen seasons of the GRB Entertainment-produced show have aired so far, and A&E says the final 14th season will feature “some of the most intense and gripping stories of the series.”

Addiction specialists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan and Donna Chavous will each return for the series’ final chapter, along with Ken Seeley, “who comes back for one of the most difficult and dramatic episodes in the series’ history,” according to the network.

David McKillop, executive VP of programming at A&E Network and Bio Channel, said: “As Intervention comes to an end, we’re proud to have paved the way for such an original and ground-breaking series.

“We’re honored to have been a part of the 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, leading to the 156 individuals that are currently sober to this day.”

Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Dan Partland are the show’s executive producers, with Sam Mettler the executive consultant. For A&E, the exec producers are McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Holcman.

The final season kicks off on June 13 at 9 p.m. EST.
