The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled and production is slated to formally wrap at year’s end. Only in its second season, the CBS-aired show was reportedly canceled due to high production costs and low ratings.

“The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome…believe in yourself and continue to fly,” Latifah wrote to her staff and crew in the wake of the announcement.

According to People Magazine, Queen Latifah’s two-season run was “short and sweet.” However, original episodes will continue to run through March of 2015.

Born Dana Elaine Owens, Latifah is best known as a rapper, singer and actress. She earned her first Oscar nomination for best supporting actress for her role in the musical Chicago.

“The Queen Latifah Show” debuted in September of 2013. Her first guests included John Travolta and Willow Smith. It was reported to be the highest-rated premiere in daytime talk since “The Dr. Oz Show” in 2009. In more recent times, Latifah lists of guests have included such high-profile personalities as Bill Clinton and Jamie Foxx.

The Sony Pictures’ produced talk show has reportedly not been performing as well in the ratings as CBS had hoped. Despite cancellation, Latifah had nothing but praise for her crew. “Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed true grit” the talks show host added.

The show marked Latifah’s second go-around in the world of talk show television. She previously had a daytime talk show that ran from 1999 to 2001.

Despite its cancellation, Sony Pictures executives expressed overall pride in the program. “We want to thank Dana, the producers and the entire staff of ‘The Queen Latifah Show’ for creating a program that we are all very proud of,” the company wrote in a prepared statement.
