Lisa Ling says goodbye to ‘This is Life’ after 9 seasons

Journalist Lisa Ling has said goodbye to her show “This is Life with Lisa Ling” after nine seasons. The show’s final two episodes debuted on Sunday, December 18.

“This is Life with Lisa Ling” is a documentary television series that examines different lifestyles in each episode. The first episode debuted on CNN back in 2014.

In November, Ling confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the ninth season would be the show’s last.

“I was hoping to get to 10 seasons, but we fell short of that,” Ling told The Los Angeles Times. “I would like to do many, many more seasons, especially right now, when we are existing in these bubbles and we follow people who espouse what we believe. In some ways, we’ve cut ourselves off from really getting to know people who might be different or think differently than we do.”

Ling also wrote about the show in an op-ed for CNN.

“For nine seasons, these are the moments I’ve shared with people whose lives have become part of the documentary series, “This Is Life.” They could not be more different from one another, or from me, but they share in common being people I might never have gotten the opportunity to meet if it weren’t for our show,” she wrote.
