In a surprise move, “The Problem with Jon Stewart” is said to be coming to an immediate end on Apple TV+, according to the New York Times.
The series was previously renewed for a third season and that third season was about to start filming in the coming days, but due to creative differences between Jon Stewart and Apple, the series is now coming to an end.
According to the NYT, Apple executives took issue with Stewart planning to cover topics for the upcoming season such as artificial intelligence, China, and the upcoming 2024 U.S. general election. Stewart was said to have wanted full creative control of the show and when that was not agreeable with Apple, Stewart decided to walk away from the series.
Previously, the series had talked about topics like former U.S. President Donald Trump’s indictment, the 2022 U.S. midterms, and gun control.
“The Problem with Jon Stewart” did get five Emmy nominations during its two seasons on Apple TV+.
Both seasons of the show can still be found to stream on Apple TV+ for the time being. It is unknown if Apple will remove the series entirely from its streaming service in the near or immediate future due to this unforeseen change.
