Rumors have been flying around for a while now, and CBS has now officially confirmed that THE TALK will be coming to an end in December 2024. Could this be the opening in the CBS Daytime schedule where the new soap THE GATES could land?

Variety is reporting that CBS is canceling THE TALK after its 15th season, which will be an abbreviated one coming to an end later this year.  “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell, and Sheryl Underwood, our executive producer/showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew,” CBS Entertainment president Amy Reisenbach and CBS Studios president David Stapf said in a joint statement. “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day. And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

THE TALK premiered on CBS back in 2010, taking over the timeslot made available when the beloved long-running soap AS THE WORLD TURNS was axed by the network. When it was revealed that CBS and  Procter & Gamble are getting back into the daytime drama game with the development of a new soap titled THE GATES, fans were excited and wondered where it might slot into their daytime schedule. Well, it would seem now we know!
