VH1 will be airing the final three episodes of “Sorority Sisters” on Friday evening. After receiving massive backlash, boycotts and criticism for its portrayal of historically Black greek organizations, VH1 finally decided to end the season early. The final three episodes will air back-to-back beginning at 9:30 pm est.
According to AJC, the abrupt ending doesn’t mean the reality show has been officially cancelled.
This doesn’t mean the show has been officially cancelled. VH1 rarely makes such announcements when a show is killed anyway, but no network with any intention of bringing a show back would make a move like this. It’s not a stretch to say it’s over for “Sorority Sisters.”
Last week, VH1 aired Sorority Sisters: The Dialogue special in order for the women on the show to explain why they decided to become apart of the reality show — and most importantly address the show’s critics.
BuzzFeed News spoke to VH1 about their decision to end the season early.
“Based on the feedback we saw on Twitter after Sorority Sisters: The Dialogue debuted last week, it was clear that the audience wanted to see the stories of the cast play out more fully,” a rep for the network said in a statement to BuzzFeed News. “We felt it would be best to run the remaining episodes back to back, bringing the season full circle.”
