's days as a reality star are done for now.
TLC – the network that gave viewers a firsthand glimpse of Kate's tumultuous and highly publicized split from ex-husband
Jon Gosselin while they continued to raise their eight children – will no longer follow the 36-year-old and her brood with cameras.
"TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8
," a network rep told PEOPLE in a statement. "By the end of this season Kate Plus 8
will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8
); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future."
