Khloé Kardashian’s primetime talk show is ending after 14 episodes.

Despite ordering additional episodes in February, U.S. cable network FYI has pulled the plug on the hour-long, Pilgrim Media Group-produced series.

The final episode will air on April 20 and feature guests Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.

“FYI and Pilgrim Media Group appreciate everyone’s great work on the series and are pleased that the show brought new viewers and significant numbers to FYI’s linear and digital platforms,” FYI and Pilgrim said in a joint statement. “We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Khloé and thank her for her hard work and unique voice that she brought to the series.”

A rep for FYI had no further comment on the reasons for the cancellation.

The two-year-old lifestyle network greenlit eight episodes of Kocktails with Khloé last fall. The show featured the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star chatting over drinks with a rotating cast of friends, family and celebrities such as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, RuPaul, T-Pain and Snoop Dogg. FYI picked up an additional 15 episodes after the show earned the channel its highest-rated premiere upon debuting in January 20.
