Drew Barrymore Abruptly Cancels Taping For Season 3 Of Her Daytime Talk Show

The Drew Barrymore Show has abruptly canceled tapings for the Season 3 premiere, citing unspecified “production changes.”

Guests for the show’s September 8 morning taping were allegedly told filming would be “canceled” due to “production changes,” according to The Sun. Those who had planned to be in the audience were given the option of applying for two of the Sept. 15 tapings instead, or another day if they were unable to attend.

“We apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause you and your party,” the email said.

When Decider reached out for comment, a show spokesperson dismissed any production issues, saying, “The show is still taping in the studio that day, the production schedules times just shifted as is common in daily daytime productions.”

Season 3 of the talk show, which has 500,000 viewers per day (one-third of its ABC time slot competitor, Live with Kelly and Ryan), will be produced differently. Drew will instead air in two 30-minute episodes, either back-to-back or split.

Barrymore told The Hollywood Reporter after the show was renewed for a third season in April, “I am honored and grateful, but I also want to take this show higher and continue to innovate and be a game-changer in the daytime space.”

“I want to challenge myself by rising to the occasion of finding people in the diverse ways they watch,” she continued. Our show aims to be a bright spot, not a dark spot, and we simply want to make people happy. And I want to thank everyone who helped us get here.”

With a star-studded Season 3 guest lineup that includes Charli D’Amelio, Danny DeVito, Tyler Perry, Lena Dunham, Regina Hall, and others, it appears that Barrymore still has a chance… Of course, if that premiere is ever filmed.
