The Hallmark Channel have announced that Marie Osmonds talkshow, 'Marie,' won't be renewed for a second season on their channel but the right to broadcast the show will be sold which could give her another shot.
Marie Osmond, one of the famous Osmond music family siblings, had marked her return to daytime television in the USA with her lifestyle talkshow, Marie, but in a blow for the wholesome musician and TV personality, it won't be aired for a second season.

According to the Associated Press, the show's producer and distributor, Associated Television International, have said in a statement that Marie was going into broadcast syndication -where the right to broadcast a show is sold to multiple broadcasting platforms - as had been originally intended, with a planned launch for Fall next year (2014). "With so many talk show offerings in the [daytime], particularly in broadcast syndication, Hallmark Channel has decided not to greenlight a second season of its Critics Choice Award nominated talk show, Marie, starring Marie Osmond," said The Hallmark Channel who recognised Marie's "immense talent and dedication to excellence" in her Critics' Choice nominated show.

53 year-old Marie made her name as a sister to the Osmond brothers and in her own right as a country singer, particularly her hit cover 'Paper Roses.' Her move into television presenting was marked by her variety show, Donny & Marie, with joint-host and brother Donny in a series that was a big hit from 1976-1979. According to MultiChannel News, Hallmark will continue to air new Marie episodes through August and will then offer repeats through the fall beginning on the 28th September. However, it's unclear who will fill the timeslot previously occupied by Marie.
