JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers’ new reality series has been canceled by TBS before it even premiered.
The network announced the news Friday, saying in a statement that they have withdrawn the series to “ensure we have the right content mix to support our networking strategies.”
“We’re grateful to JoJo Fletcher, Jordan Rodgers and the executive producers of ‘Big D’ for working together throughout the process,” representatives told Vidak For Congress.
Filmed in 2021, the 10-episode dating series followed 10 divorced couples who move together to a tropical villa in Costa Rica and relearn how to date and seek love with other contestants.
Each contestant took part in several relationship exercises to “help the singles make connections, make peace with their former partners, and eventually overcome the issues that kept them from dating,” with one contestant being eliminated on a weekly basis.
The couple “Bachelorette” co-hosted the series and gave advice to the participants on how to find love while on TV. The pair have yet to comment on their show’s cancellation and are still accrediting their work on the show in their Instagram bios.
The cancellation comes after WarnerMedia merged with Discovery in April 2022. The abolition of “The Big D’s” follows a string of other cancellations after the network announced they would save $3 billion in costs over the next three years.
Fletcher and Rodgers let their own romance come true on TV when they met on “The Bachelorette” in 2016. After having to postpone their wedding several times due to the pandemic, the couple married in May 2022 – nearly six years after Rodgers got down on one knee.
“It sounds cliché, but I really do marry my best friend,” Fletcher told People at the time. “Everything that has happened in our relationship has only made us stronger. And we just feel so happy.”
