A&E cancels 'Intervention'

Intervention couple

After eight years, and thirteen seasons, A&E has made the decision to cut Intervention. I never really got into watching Intervention, besides an episode here or there if I happened to catch it on TV, or the Canadian version when it featured an individual from my hometown. An Emmy award winning docu-series, Intervention shed light into the lives of individuals struggling with addiction and strived to help them work towards a better future.

“As Intervention comes to an end, we’re proud to have paved the way for such an original and groundbreaking series,” said David McKillop, executive vp programming at A&E Network and Bio Channel. “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.”

The final five episodes of the season, which will air beginning on June 13th, are being called some of the most “intense” and “gripping” stories to date. Addiction specialists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan and Donna Chavous are each returning in the final episodes of the season, along with Ken Seeley who “comes back for one of the most difficult and dramatic episodes in the series’ history.”

All-in-all, the series was a fantastic way to bring attention to a serious problem which plagues people from all walks of life, all over the world. Are you sad to hear that Intervention is coming to an end?

Why gone?

Yes, since it's one of the few shows that deals with REAL real life events in a true to ACTUAL life manner- WHY is this show being cut? Because it's REAL reality rather than 'fake' reality? Probably.Bring it back before you make a mistake - you could have real follow ups on all of the people on it so we can see whether it actually ever WORKS in the long run- but STUPID TV executives never want to go there -too REAL for them...
