Joan Rivers' final TV franchise, E!'s Fashion Police, will live on.
Two weeks after the death of the comedienne, E! announced Friday that Fashion Police will return to the network Jan. 12, timed to the Golden Globe Awards. There was no word whether Rivers would be replaced, or if any of the panelists -- Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos -- were returning or would be considered for the hosting role.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Joan Rivers and, for the last two weeks, have turned our attention to honoring her memory on all of our platforms,” E! said in a statement. “We have also thought long and hard about what Joan would have wanted as it pertains to the future of Fashion Police. We decided, with [Joan Rivers’ daughter] Melissa Rivers’ blessing, that Joan would have wanted the franchise to continue.”
The news came as the network was in the midst of a Rivers salute, with an a Fashion Police marathon, capped by the 90-minute special Fashion Police: Celebrating Joanat 8 p.m. (ET)
