'Hoarders' canceled by A&E after six seasons

New episodes of"Hoarders" will be airing on A&E no more. The network quietly confirmed that the TV series has been canceled after a six-season run. The Post-Gazette received a confirmation from an A&E publicist that the show would not return on the network. This comes after many speculated that "Hoarders'" 13-episode sixth season would be its last when it ended in February. In its stead, A&E looks to be shifting its focus to scripted reality shows like "Duck Dynasty" and original dramas like "Bates Motel." The network also ended "Intevention" in 2013, but at least it gave that series a heads up that it would be brought to an end. After the final episode of Season 6 aired, "Hoarders" extreme cleaning specialist Matt Paxton took to Facebook to write, "We have not been picked up for a 7th season, so this could very well be the LAST episode of HOARDERS - EVER!

'Hoarders': Joanne's Love For Her Grandson Inspires Her To Seek Help

On " Hoarders " (Mon., 9 p.m. EST on A&E) viewers were introduced to Joanne and her young grandson Cayden. Compulsive hoarder Joanne was Cayden's daytime caregiver, but her home had become so squalid and cramped that it was close to being too dangerous for him to visit any more. Plus, Joanne's hoarding had also brought her relationship with her son and daughter-in-law to breaking point. Faced with the threat of not being able to see her grandson any more, Joanne sought help and took steps toward dealing with her issues. With the help of Dr. Robin Zasio she cleaned up her house. And how! As a delighted Cayden explored the newly immaculate home, Dr. Zasio paid tribute to his grandmother. "I can't be more please with Joanne and how she worked this process," she said. "She was open, she was ready, I think she's going to work to restore her relationship with her son." As she watched Cayden running safely through her home Joanne said it was the best day of her life. For his part, the adorable little tyke said "My grandma is the best grandma in the world!" Watch new transformations -- or disappointments -- each week on "Hoarders," Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on A&E .

Kevin Struggles to Give Up Control of the Clean-Up on 'Hoarders' (VIDEO)

There are a lot more clean houses in American right now, as 'Hoarders' (Mon., 9PM ET on A&E) is back to make us feel guilty about even the slightest bit of clutter in our homes. At the same time, we can be thankful we don't have to crawl through a "womb" of crap to get into our apartment, like Kevin does. He has packed his Manhattan apartment so fully, that this child of one of the most famous television couples of the 1950s is sleeping on a park bench. And yet, with the threat of eviction hanging over him, he still struggled to relinquish any control to Dorothy Breininger in the clean-up.

'Hoarders' Checks Back on Five Cases, Including 'Rat Man' Glen (VIDEO)

To wrap its fourth season, the Emmy-nominated 'Hoarders' (Mon., 9PM ET on A&E) proved why it's such compelling and critically-acclaimed television. The stories they spotlight are so fascinating and framed so well that we get emotionally invested in the people on it. We want them to get better! The show went back to check in on five of the more memorable cases from the show's third season. We got about what we expected, with some of the hoarders slipping back into old habits and resenting the show, while others used it as a launching pad to correcting their lives. The aftercare funds, which help with ongoing therapy and professional organizing are the key to the successful transformations. It's when they were rejected generally that we saw people who just weren't ready to get better.

See, her house is trashed despite it being gorgeous and outfitted with a pool. (And dig that DeLorean in her driveway!) If this doesn't remind you of Big and Little Edie Beale, you need to watch Grey Gardens again...

VIDEO: What's So Bad About a Media Hoarder?

Beverly records everything! This week's episode of Hoarders (Monday, 9/8c, A&E) suggests that there is rarely a moment when the Towanda, Kan., woman's fleet of DVD burners aren't capturing multiple TV programs. Of course, these things pile up (and spill into the backyard) and there's more general disarray going on in her situation. But still, I relate to her...

VIDEO: Fire Is Not Considered a Fire Hazard on Hoarders

On Monday's Hoarders (9/8c, A&E) we meet Ron, who seems like a garden-variety hoarder until he reveals that he keeps an open flame on his stove "at all times." He reasons that it helps warm the house, and that it's not a fire hazard because it can't reach any of the thousands of pieces of paper he has crammed in his house.
