Jada Pinkett Smith’s popular web series “Red Table Talk” has been canceled by Facebook Watch after five seasons, due to parent company Meta’s decision to discontinue Facebook Original shows following the exit of its Head of Development and Programming. The show, co-hosted by Pinkett Smith, her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and daughter Willow Smith, covered a range of topics and featured celebrity guests, including Will Smith, Leah Remini, Janelle Monáe, and Sandra Bullock.
There was been five seasons of the hit series. Variety reports that the series has been cancelled amid broad cost-cutting moves as Meta shuts down the Facebook Watch Originals group. Red Table Talk was one of the few series in the small slate of shows.
The show’s production company Westbrook Studios, which is founded by Jada and Will is reportedly looking for a new distributor for the series.
In season five Jada discretely addressed Will’s controversial Oscars slap. Will walked up on stage and slapped actor Chris Rock during the Oscars on Sunday 27 March 2022. This was after Rock made a joke about Jada. Jada, I love you, ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it,” said Rock as Will first laughed but then turned sour.
Jada on the other hand appeared to look furious.. Will walked up on stage and slapped Rock and said “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth,” to Rock. Wow, Will Smith just smacked the s–t out of me” before defending what was “just a ‘G.I. Jane’ joke,” he continued.
