After three successful seasons, child stars Tia and Tamera Mowry are calling it quits, with the cancellation of their self-titled reality TV show Tia & Tamera.

On Tuesday Dec. 31, Tamera Mowry-Housley announced that the E! series would not be returning for a fourth season.

The 35-year-old actress took to Twitter to share the abrupt news with fans. The reality TV star posted a series of tweets to address their executive decision.

Mowry-Housley’s tweeted, “Wanted to say Thank You for all the love and support. But most of all welcoming me, my husband, n (and) my son into your homes for 3 seasons…”

“Tia and Tamera will not have a season 4. Thank you for always supporting us throughout the years. Tia n I decided it was time 2 live r family lives behind the cameras…,” she said.

The Tia & Tamera reality series initially started out as just a television special, which was originally titled Tia & Tamera Take 2. The television special aired July 17, 2010 on the former Style Network.

The television series allowed fans to look into the personal lives of the famous twins as they juggled careers, marriage and motherhood.

However, fans soon discovered a shocking, yet interesting detail about the two – opposition. The show revealed the vast differences between the twins’ personalities, which actually served as a gravitational pull to keep fans interested.


The success of the television special led to a reality television spin-off that ended up being coined simply Tia & Tamera. The reality show debuted on August 8, 2011.

Due to exceptionally high ratings, the Style Network immediately renewed the show for a second season in September 2011, just one month after the series premiere. A third season was announced in February of 2013, and premiered on July 14, 2013.

The show’s third and final season ended September 22, 2013. Tia & Tamera was actually the last television series to air on the Style Network before it was rebranded as the Esquire Network the very next day.

The Sister, Sister stars expressed that their decision to part with reality TV was due to their desire to live their lives outside of the spotlight. Although they may be walking away from reality TV, all isn’t lost as they’ll still be in the spotlight. However, it won’t be for reality TV.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict is currently starring on the new NickMoms show Instant Mom, while Tamera is a permanent panelist on the talk show The Real.

    Yeah Elleanor, it was a fairly popular show on E Television. I think it was more popular with people of color.

      People of color? What is this, 1952?

      I *loved* their show and I am white, you bigoted whackjob. smh.

        Yes, millions of whites have routinely liked them and yes, we often watch BET and black college football on ESPN2–I am a white 30-something male from Europe and I love the half-time shows. :)

      Excuse you, what do you mean “fairly” popular and people of “color”….I’ll have you know Ms. Thang it was a very popular show that was watched by many different races, not just people of “color”…duh!

    This is disappointing news. I was really looking forwarded to the new season. The reality show isn’t negative, the girls keep it real and I believe the reality show would show a family in a positive spin. Unlike the other reality family on E who I refuse to watch anymore. So ‘E’ I’m disappointed.

    I really liked the show, I thought it was very positive. I hope they are both happy with their decision.

    I’ve watched these girls since “Sister Sister” and throughout their reality show. I really enjoy watching these positive ladies especially watching them grow up from young girls to beautiful married mothers. I loved Tia in “The Game” moving forward. I’m sad that their show has come to an end but I can respect their decision to end it and move forward. Good luck to them both on their new career path.
