“Mariah’s World” has come to an end at E!
The network has decided to pass on a second season of Mariah Carey’s reality series, according to Variety, which notes that it had always positioned “Mariah’s World” as an “event” series, indicating it would only run for one season.
In a statement to Variety, a rep for E! said, “E!’s ‘Mariah’s World’ was an eight-part event that chronicled her 2016 world tour. It was exciting to bring our viewers inside the private world of one of today’s most iconic stars as she returned to the stage last year.”
“Mariah’s World,” followed the personal and professional life of the singer as she prepared for a tour. Though the series premiered to an impressive 2.2 million viewers in December 2016, a steady decline in viewership followed throughout the season, with the remaining episodes drawing between just 510,000 and 810,000 viewers each.
Speaking to Variety ahead of the show’s launch, Carey said she wanted to do the series because the timing was right. When asked if she would be interested in filming more than eight episodes, she said, “If people like it then I will think about it. It depends on what I end up doing — if it’s touring or if I’m in the studio. If I’m in the studio, I don’t really like people to be around me that much. I prefer to be alone or with my engineer. So we’ll see. That’s why I’m saying it’s a docuseries. It works because it captioned a moment in my life and that’s what was important to me.”
