The “Dr. Oz Show” will end its 12-year run early next year as its host, Mehmet Oz, ramps up his bid for a Senate seat in Pennsylvania, Sony Pictures Television confirmed in a statement Monday.
The daytime television show , currently in its 13th season, will air its last episode on Jan. 14, 2022 and will be replaced by “The Good Dish,” a cooking show hosted by Oz’s daughter Daphne, food writer Gail Simmons and “Let’s Eat” co-host Jamika Pessoa. The “Dr. Oz Show” had previously been renewed in September 2020 for seasons 13 and 14.
Oz is running as a Republican for the seat being vacated by GOP Sen. Pat Toomey, who is retiring at the end of next year. The Pennsylvania race is widely viewed as crucial to both parties amid jockeying to seize the Senate majority in next year’s midterms.
