A&E is canceling its award-winning documentary series Intervention this year. The 13th season, which is set to start airing on June 13, will be it last.

Intervention’s final season will be comprised of five episodes that feature “fan favorites” from the series’ long history. Some of the addiction specialists tapped to return include Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan, Donna Chavous and Ken Seeley. A&E says the final season will feature some rather intense episodes.

“As Intervention comes to an end, we’re proud to have paved the way for such an original and groundbreaking series,” said A&E and BIO Channel’s executive vice president of programming David McKillop. “We’re honored to have been a part of the 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, leading to the 156 individuals that are currently sober to this day.”

You may have never watched the series, but one episode from the A&E series became a short lived Internet sensation on the Internet a few years ago when the emotional climax was auto-tuned:

    I tune in every Monday hoping Intervention will be on. Inevitably some stupid ass show about rich hillbillies or some other crap will be on. You even took Hoarders off! Well, congrats now all of your shows suck!

      Intervention is the best show on television. It is such a shame to lose a show that has helped so many people. KEEP IT GOING!!!!!!!!! There will always been someone out there who needs an intervention.

    Why cancel a show that helped people? Let me guess more hillbillies and Norman Bates descendants. Ughhh!

    I’m VERY disappointed! This is one of the best shows on TV! I’m sick of reality shows with rich catty women with rich people problems and really dumb shows like Storage or Parking Wars.

    INTERVENTION is like an AA meeting to me cause I don’t attend meetings. It reminds me why I am sober. I will miss it very much!
