It might be a wrap for Strahan, Sara, and Keke. Page Six reports that ABC has canceled the show and will replace it with GMA 3: What You Need to Know.
They explain that when the pandemic hit, Strahan, Sara, and Keke was replaced with Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report. According to a source, “It was initially supposed to be a two-week experiment and the show did really well.” They add, “‘Pandemic’ then morphed into ‘GMA 3’ to include other topics in the news cycle.”
Page Six states that ABC has yet to make an official announcement, but insiders have given them the inside scoop. One source told them, “It’s unfortunate, but the hope is that they’ll be a big part of [GMA 3] down the road. Everyone was feeling good about their show. It was nominated for three Daytime Emmys. It finally found its rhythm. Ratings were stabilized and were starting to tick up when they went off-air.”
Another source adds, “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”
Page Six lastly adds that the three hosts are still getting paid, and ABC is staying in contact with them. “They’re figuring out what the future will look like.”
