However, Meta is shutting down all of its Facebook Watch programmes – with Red Table Talk being the last show to be cancelled, reports Variety.

Shortly after the news of its cancellation, the programme’s official Instagram page shared a statement.

It reads: “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.”

The programme was produced by Pinkett-Smith’s production company Westbrook Studios – which she runs with her husband.

It’s now looking for another distributor to air the show.

Fans have rushed to the comments to discuss the show’s cancellation.

One fan says: “There’s nothing like the Red Table Talk out there – and the amount I’ve learned from your show is immense.

“I know you’ll find another partner – cos the show is needed.”

Someone else writes: “Job well done, Jada!! See you at your new network!! A NEW journey awaits.”

Another pleads: “Jada… please tell me we’re just switching networks. This show is my THERAPY.”

While somebody else comments: “I’ll watch wherever you go. The world needs Red Table Talk conversations.”
