After nine seasons, 227 episodes and a number of one-off specials, TLC has officially canceled 19 Kids and Counting after star Josh Duggar's molestation scandal surfaced this spring.
The reality show "will no longer appear on the air," the network told the Associated Press in a statement Thursday.
TLC pulled the plug on 19 Kids following public pressure that erupted when a resurfaced police report from 2006 revealed that Josh had been investigated for child molestation of six people when he was a teen.

When Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald came forward as victims of their brother's molestation in a tell-all interview on Fox News last week, critics accused parents Michelle and Jim Bob of persuading their daughters to defend eldest son Josh Duggar.
However, a source close to the family tells PEOPLE that the focus was always going to be on Michelle, 48, and Jim Bob, 49, until Jill stepped forward. "She, too, wanted to give an interview. Her parents were concerned because they felt she had been through enough, but she was clear – she never wanted this information public."
Indeed, the girls were more upset during their interview by what they felt was a violation of privacy than by Josh's actions, which they insisted had been forgiven years earlier, before cameras even started rolling on 19 Kids and Counting (then 17 Kids and Counting) in 2008. As a family, "we've already moved on," said both Jessa and Jill on The Kelly File.

Once news broke that Josh Duggar had been investigated as a teen for molesting five underage girls – four of whom were his sisters – the residents of Tontitown, Arkansas – and its neighboring towns in Washington County – found themselves under an unprecedented level of media scrutiny.
The attention – and Josh's actions – were initially met with a general sense of anger, indignation and embarrassment on part of the county's residents, though others were sympathetic to Duggar heads of household Michelle, 48, and Jim Bob, 49.

When an unearthed felony investigation from 2006 revealed that Josh Duggar had molested five underage girls as a teen, the family felt that they had already "moved on" from the scandal that was making headlines across the country.
This, according to two of the victims – Jill (Duggar) Dillard and Jessa (Duggar) Seewald – when they appeared on The Kelly File Friday to discuss what had happened to them when they were 12 and "9 or 10," respectively.
Host Megyn Kelly asked whether the family had felt any hesitation entering into a reality show given what was hidden in their past, but Jessa, now 22, said that the family "had moved on" by the time cameras started rolling on 19 Kids and Counting (then 17 Kids and Counting in 2008.

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Jill (Duggar) Dillard say their parents used "safeguards" to protect them from their brother, Josh Duggar, after he molested them as well as two of their sisters when they were young.
After the incidents, their parents, 19 Kids and Counting stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, talked to their 19 children about "not being alone," Jill, 24, told Megyn Kelly Friday on Fox News' The Kelly File.
"My parents said, 'Okay, we're not going to do this hide-and-seek thing where two people go off and hide together,' " the new mom explained.
Their parents put "locks on the doors," said Jill. "You know, everybody's in bed. Girls in the girls' room. Boys in the boys' room … as a mother now I look back, and I think, you know, my parents did such an amazing job for me. Even when we went through the DHS investigation they complimented my parents on what an amazing job they did through that process."
