T.D. Jakes (the show, not the person) is not getting renewed for a second season, according to Broadcasting & Cable and TVNewsCheck. Media company Tegna is dropping the Dallas pastor's daytime talk show in favor of a new live, multi-platform show called BOLD (Broadcast Online Live Daily).

Tegna says it, "is proud of the T.D. Jakes show. It has been an honor to work with T. D. Jakes and his organizations as well as our partner 44 Blue Productions. They've been outstanding champions in making the Jakes program a reality. Together, we produced a show that was compelling, real and the closest thing to Oprah since she left the air. Despite the quality of the show and talent, we will not pursue a second season due to the current economics of daytime TV."

The show's first season will continue to air, but it won't be coming back for round two.

Or at least, Tegna won't be the company to produce another season. Jakes' fans can still hold onto at least the small hope that someone else will take the show and run with it. After all, The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) acquired the rights to air the show last year, and Oprah has a way of making miracles happen.

The show's Facebook and Twitter pages have yet to say anything about the future of the show. It's business as usual on those fronts.

In Dallas, T.D. Jakes airs on WFAA weekdays at 3 p.m.
