'Bringing Up Bates' Canceled


It is with heavy hearts that we share this news. Seven years after its premiere, Bringing Up Bates has been canceled. In its statement, UPtv shared that it is will be shifting its focus to movies and a new scripted series that has not yet been revealed. You can read the network's statement, as well as quotes from Gil and Kelly Bates, in an article on the Us Weekly website.

  9. I am very upset. I love your show. Finally, there was a uplifting show and I adored it. I will not be watching that network anymore. Keep well and safe and hopefully we will be seeing you again in the near future. Sincerely, Janice

  12. Maybe another network can pick it up, if that is legal.
    Hope it had nothing to do with their IBLP relationship and the Duggar’s/ Josh.

    2. Magnolia Network is replacing DIY [Do It Yourself] network. It’s run by Discovery networks. Their family of 19 children, half of whom are adults, would not fit under Magnolia Network.

  14. That is a shame. I was hoping to have at least the Bates now that the Duggars aren't on TV anymore. Well, I wish them the best. I will miss them on TV.

  24. I can understand moving more towards original movies and scripted shows. But what I do not get is not showing the already filmed next season. The Bates family deserve better from UPtv. At the very least give them a proper sendoff. I will not be watching their programming anymore. Come Bates fans lets show the family our support by making our feelings known to UPtv.

    1. They do make money on their own, Gil has a tree business in which he employs many of his sons, why give job to others when can give to family,Trace is a police officer,Michael will be a nurse, Whitney a real estate agent, Josie and Katie beauticians and hairdressers, Chad has a construction business, some of them share an online clothing store, they are doing very well indeed, so what's wrong with earning a little extra money, which they share by the way, to put aside for your childrens future,would you turn down an opportunity to earn extra money from a show, probably not!

  34. Maybe they'll do what TLC did with 19KAC and Counting On. Cancel this show but bring it right back rebranded as "Brought Up Bates."

    1. They don't want to take risks with family like this.

    2. No,they won't because 19 kids was canceled because of a scandal and they used another name and family members because the show was doing well and they wanted tlc wanted to continue earning by fooling their sponsors that would allow them a show with a different name, while bub has been canceled to make way for other programs as it must have been one of the shows on the network with the least profit.

  35. NO! Now we will never see season 11. And else they put it on YouTube.

    I can't understand why UPtv would film Season 11, and then cancel the show days before its premiere. Such a waste. Make a decision AFTER this season!
    You never know when a job or an opportunity will end. You always have to be prepared for surprises, I guess.

  47. Going to call the TV station tomorrow. Will not watch up TV anymore because I just don’t think that was right. They were so popular. It’s got to be something more than this and it’s very discouraging. May God bless their family!

  48. NO, NO, NO!!! What is UP TV thinking??? The Duggars gone, and now the Bates? About the only wholesome shows left on TV! Anyone else find this a bit odd?

  50. I think that it will be better for their family to not have a show.

    ReplyDelete
  51. If you had told me that the sky was grass green today so I checked and it was, I couldn’t have been more shocked. I know BUB was UP TV’s most highly watched show. They pretty much had to have Season 11 wrapped up to air Feb 10th. With 2 weddings, an overseas engagement, a miracle baby, and Carlin’s pregnancy, this was going to be a big season. I know it is one I was looking forward to. At this point, we can only guess as to why it was cancelled. There are plenty of sites where there is speculation, but even looking at a few of those reasons, I think they could have handled some of them apologetically, and at least showed us Season 11. I am going to miss the show terribly. I don’t agree with their religious connections to IBLP or ATI. But, in this country, they have the right to their beliefs.

    1. But not the right to a huge public platform to recruit. Good riddance.

  52. This cancellation's timing is quite strange. The new season was advertised here; I would think only after the 'ok' from the network.....then cancellation. Something is up here. On another note, now that they have lost this "incredible income" from the show, how are they going to continue to support themselves and their pedicures and lattes?

    1. And all the clothes and shoes...

    2. Oh my! You can't have pedicures and lattes from a regular wage from a tree business, real estate work, hairdressing work, nursing job, construction business, clothing store business, I guess you need a TV show to survive then, how did I ever manage to pay for my lattes, pedicures and much more without a TV show, lol!

    3. I’m not an influencer. But others have explained that many of the Bates children - Alyssa, Carlin, Josie, and Lawson do very well making money on YouTube. Erin and Michael have businesses on line, as do Carlin and Whitney with Bates’ Sisters Boutique. And all of the husbands have jobs, some of them making good money. I think the Bates understand how to support themselves.

  60. UPTV filmed two weddings and the activities for the past year and decided to cancel? That seems strange. Why not air the season and then say we are not returning after this season? UPTV just announced that the new season would begin on Feb. 10. It's very clear something happen for them to cancel the show.

    1. There have been so many scandals involving mega-TV families in recent years and UpTv may have decided that ship has sailed... time to move on. The upcoming Amazon series about IBLP may also have something to do with it. The Bates are a part of that and Gil is still on the board of directors.

  63. I came here to check for an update on baby Finley but instead was shocked to read this extremely disappointing news, especially since it had just been announced Bringing Up Bates would return next month! I love the Bates family and was really looking forward to seeing everything that has happened since they were on break. It was the only show that I watch on a regular basis and something that I truly looked forward to each week. After so many years they feel like "family" to their viewers. They have been an inspiration to many people over the years and it's been a joy and delight to share in their lives. I pray another network will pick them up, but sadly for me I have no reason to tune into UPTV any longer. I hope you will continue to post about the special events in their lives on this blog. Love & blessings to all the Bates!

    1. Amazon has a docu-series in the works about the controversial IBLP organization and the TV families who have an association with them, the Duggars and Bates included. Gil is on the board of directors. Perhaps UpTv did not want to have anything remotely tied to this.

  81. Strange, you’d think they would just air what they had planned and then cancel after that. And a new scripted family show that hasn’t been revealed? Why the mystery? Could it be the Bates have been recruited as actors in this new show? They have such a huge fan base and are used to the cameras

    1. They would hardly cancel episodes already filmed just because they wanted them in a scripted show. The Bates have become a liability, like the Duggars. The commonality is the IBLP. Gil Bates is one of the leaders of the organization.

    1. I agree - there is another reason they are cancelling a season that has already been filmed. Might have something to do with the docu-series coming out on Amazon later this year that is supposed to feature the Duggars, the Bates and a few others. But I am done with UPTV - won't be watching anything on there now.

    2. I agree. The Bates husband will play a role in this. Up tv don't want a scandal like TLC.

      Delete
    3. If there is a reason other than what's been given, it must be a good one in order for the network to pull the plug so fast. Maybe they are changing their programming content, but maybe they need to distance themselves from the Bates in a hurry. If that's the case, then will the truth of the matter ever come out?

    4. 1:20 I don't think that the Bates game of Charades and derogatory reference to George Floyd helped matters.

  93. so... is Season 11 that is airing in Feb the last season or is that cancelled as well?

  94. I would create your own shows and put them up on Daily Motion, Godtv, youtube, and so on and monetize it. This way you can have some people doing Crafting shows, others do Bible study, or tour the world or whatever you come up with. Blessings!

  96. After what happened with the Duggars, I guess UP decided not to continue. I’m not making any allegations, so be calm! I also read there’s a documentary coming out about their religious group which may not be flattering. It’s back to the real world for them. I hope they saved some of that money! I doubt we’ll be seeing extravagant vacations now! It had to end sometime.

But a lot has happened (come out) since then for the Duggars, the Bates, and their religious group. The speed with which the network just did a 180 on this program is indeed curious.

  103. Financially, this can't be good for Gil and Kelly, who still have several children to raise. I am not sure if Gil can even do the tree business anymore? He isn't young and had a shoulder injury. The older adult children will be ok, but might have to change their lifestyles a bit.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They couldn't have believed the show would last forever. Not even until the youngest was raised. TV shows just don't last that long anymore, especially the reality shows. And to be honest, this show seemed to have become nothing but courtship and engagement extravaganzas, weddings and births. It was the same story just with a different kid. And the adult kids hopefully were self-supporting already.

      Delete
  104. Perhaps UP TV I has been made aware of something about the Bates that has not gone public yet.
    I am hoping the facts will come out and the Bates will be on the right side of the circumstances and season 11 will finally be aired, along with a season 12 and 13 and…

  110. There must be a reason for this. The season was ready to air and they had so much big events. Weddings and childeren. But 2 of them where in DC the 6th of Januar. And the clip of Carlin was not ok. As a Christian I did not agree on that. Also they do not seem to have a diverse background with friends.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Not a surprising announcement... given that they've all been starting YouTube channels (the Duggars too). My guess is they've known for a while... At least with YouTube each little family can make their own videos on their own time and earn their own money. It's a good next step for all of them.

  114. I would encourage everybody that is very sad and disappointed by this decision to email Hcampos@UPtv.com and let him know how sad you are over this decision they have made so abruptly. I just did that. In a kind way. But I wanted them to know how heartbroken I am over their decision to take off such a clean and God centered family to replace it with a scripted television show that are a dime a dozen on other networks. Well I did not say it in that way. I said it as kindly as I could.πŸ˜”πŸ˜’

    2. I had posted above an incorrect email address, it should be
      HCampos@UPtv.com
      To email and just let them know that you are very sad that they made this quick decision, we were all expecting it to be on in February. And asking them to please reconsider at least having one more season so maybe another television station can pick it up after that because it is a very popular TV show!
      The Bates were a ray of sunshine in a very scary world that we live in and they took it away for no reason just like that. So sad. So thankful that God is in control during sad times in life.

    3. Clean and God-centered? Are you positive?

    4. Your protest was countered by many people doing the same, only over the Charades game at a Bates family gathering and the offensive reference to George Floyd. It was a shameful display of ignorance.

  117. I'm hoping the Duggar fiasco was a wake-up call for all networks to stop exploiting these big families and stop trying to make any reality show family look picture perfect. It hasn't worked in the past. I can't think of one big family that hasn't left their program behind due to some personal problem.

  118. For UPTV to cancel so abruptly and not even air the season that had been filmed is very telling. I would not be surprised if there are a number of contributing factors to this decision:
    - The upcoming Amazon series about the controversial IBLP. The Duggars have a long history with this organization and Gil Bates is part of the hierarchy.
    - Carlin had posted footage of a family game of charades in which there was an offensive reference to George Floyd and UPTV had filmed this. Apparently it gained traction and quite a bit of deserved criticism.
    - Josh Duggar's guilty verdict. Again, the link to IBLP.
    - The controversial content of some of Gil Bates' sermons.
    UPTV won't confirm anything. However, it stands to reason they want to distance themselves from any contention and are learning from TLC's mistakes. I think the days of glorifying anti-birth control fundamentalist families are over.

    1. IDK. It probably has to do with ratings and sponsors rather than any specific thing the Bates posted or preached.

  122. good bye uptv, only reason I paid for you is because of this show.

  123. The movies that I have seen on UPTV weren't that great. The only reason I watched UP was for the Bates. I even paid to watch on Amazon Prime when I cancelled Direct TV a year ago. What a shame. They should at least air the last season. As for some of you who seem to be giddy about the Bates family losing income, jealousy is most likely the reason and you need to take a good look in the mirror to see what you have become and change before it's too late.

  124. I will truly miss this show! The Bates family is a loving and supportive family that prays together, works together, laugh and play together, and always treat each other with respect! Now more than ever, we all need to have more positive role models! Hope another Network picks up the show! Best Wishes to the Bates family!

  125. You all need to quit acting like its the end of the world. Trust me UPTV will gone on with or without you.

  126. I love this family and show and was counting down for new season. I am so disappointed in UPtv. I don't understand why they won't show what has already been filmed?? Shame on you UPtv. Big mistake.

  127. I am also so very sad about this. I am tired of networks cancelling programs that actually have good values.

  128. Never will I watch UP again.

  129. I think the video where "George Floyd" was yelled out is why they were cancelled.

  130. I think this decision comes from those much higher up than the UP tv channel.
    Times are changing for those in any way involved with preaching and the gospel.
    Bringing up Bates will most likely be early on the list of shows to take the hit.
    Unfortunately, Lawson, Trace and Carlin added fuel to the fire.

  131. What a sad day! I love this precious family. There are very few clean shows on TV to actually watch. please reconsider removing a God loving family. I wish all the Bates a wonderful future!

  132. I just cancelled my subscription to UP Faith and Family! Your show was the only show I watched anyway, so it was a no brainer. Save myself a few bucks every month and watch the kids/family on YouTube!

  133. UPTV is trying to compete with Hallmark for mushy love movies. Enjoyed your family very much. Wish you all the best -Jeremiah 29:11.

  134. WHAT??!??!?!?! Nooooo, I was so looking forward to the season premiere :( Will they still be showing the new season at least? I sure hope so! I hope they can be picked up by another network.
