After nearly ten years with the network, Valerie Bertinelli's time on The Food Network has come to an end.  The Valerie's Home Cooking star revealed Saturday that her cooking show, which launched in 2015, was canceled. 

Food Network has yet to confirm the news, though Valerie revealed she was informed her show was canceled almost a year ago. 

She had re-signed her contract with the network less than two years ago in 2021 – she also stars in Kids Baking Championship – which had promised to bring more projects from her to audiences.

Valerie took to Instagram to share the news, just one day before the upcoming 14th, and now final, season of Valerie's Home Cooking premiered on the network, on Sunday. 

Addressing fans while enjoying a cup of coffee, she announced she had good news, the new episodes coming fans' way, and bad news, the cancellation.

She then confessed: "Food Network canceled us last summer. I have no idea why," explaining: "I didn't say anything last summer because, honestly, I was hoping they would change their mind – but they have not, so this is it."

In her caption, she also said: "It has been one of the huge joys in my life to bring you this sweet little show, and I wish it wasn't so, but the final season of Valerie's Home Cooking will start airing tomorrow. We loved making every single episode for you and I will really, really miss it. Thank you so much for watching!"

Fellow Food Network stars and fans alike immediately flooded her with support over the sad news, with The Pioneer Woman star Ree Drummond commenting: "Love you so much, Valerie!! I will be watching every episode and enjoying every second – and will of course watch you wherever your career and life take you. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself for so many years. I know I don't have to tell you that I’m a Valerie B. fan for life."
