Why aren’t new episodes airing?

On August 1, 2020, viewers were disappointed when reruns of The Talk started to air. Sadly, this is because the final episode of The Talk Season 12 aired on Friday, July 29th. So, the simple answer is new episodes of The Talk aren’t airing this week simply because there aren’t any new episodes to air. Unfortunately, fans of this talk show will have to wait for the Season 13 Premiere to catch more episodes of the Premiere.

Fortunately, the publicist of the show did respond to The Sun’s request for a comment. The statement included confirmation of The Talk Season 13’s Premiere Date. So, when will fans of the show get new episodes? Here’s what the publicist had to say:

“We are now on a previously scheduled hiatus until we return for season 13 on Sept 12.”

The publicist’s comment suggests the hiatus and reruns shouldn’t have been a total shock as it was hiatus was “previously scheduled” and already on the books.

Fortunately, fans of The Talk haven’t had to worry about new episodes or another season for a while. It was back in April that CBS confirmed the decision to renew The Talk for Season 13. While this does mean fans of this CBS staple will have to tune in to reruns for a few weeks, there are new episodes of The Talk on the horizon.

  1. I only wish there would have been an indication that this show was ‘Previously aired on ‘. I was annoyed I had to figure it out for myself when I realized I had already seen the episode. A break for vacation, etc. makes sense, but to guess for weeks if we’re back to live isn’t enjoyable. Otherwise very much enjoy the show and this cast. 🤗
