Red Table Talk—the celebrity talk show co-hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith, and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris—has been canceled after five seasons. The cancellation of the series (which launched in 2018 on Meta’s streaming service Facebook Watch) comes amid Facebook’s shift away from original programming to Virtual Reality experiences.
The 51-year-old Pinkett Smith wrote in a statement on Instagram: “We are so grateful to have had such a beautiful partnership with Facebook Watch and we are sorry to see the entire team disband. We wish everyone well in their new journeys to come. We at Red Table are in talks of finding a new home and we’ll see you soon.”
Red Table Talk often hosted celebrities in the aftermath of a scandal. For instance, influencer Jordyn Woods appeared on the show when she was accused of cheating with Khloe Kardashian’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Tristan Thompson in 2019. Pinkett Smith even addressed her own personal scandals, including her extramarital “entanglement” with singer August Alsina, as well as a brief look at how “The Slap” (that involved her husband Will Smith and Chris Rock ) had negatively impacted her family.
