The TLC network has rebranded its popular reality series with a subtraction. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be retitled Kate Plus 8.
The new series, which will launch in November, will focus more on Kate Gosselin's journey as a single mother. It was said that Jon Gosselin will still appear on the show, but not on a regular basis.
"Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family," said Eileen O'Neill, President and GM of TLC. "The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate's journey really resonates with our viewers."
It was also reported that the network is developing another Kate-themed series for a possible 2010 launch.
