Katie Couric’s talk show Katie will be cancelled after two seasons, Disney-ABC and Katie Couric announced Thursday.

The show will continue production until June 2014, Deadline reports, and the show’s cancellation was not a surprise, given its rocky ratings in the first two seasons. The show also suffered an identity crisis as it tried to marry hard-hitting news interviews with lighter daytime talk show fare.

“We’re very proud of everyone’s contributions to making Katie the #1 new syndicated talk show of 2012-2013, and we look forward to the rest of the season,” ABC and Katie Couric said in a joint statement.

Katie recently closed a deal to become the “face of Yahoo news” at Yahoo, and will start appearing on the service early next year.
