NEW YORK — The reality show “19 Kids and Counting” is never coming back to TLC.

The cable channel said Thursday that it has officially cancelled the show, nearly two months after revelations about acts of child molestation committed by one of the 19 kids, Josh Duggar, when he was a teenager. Several of his sisters were among the victims.

TLC initially pulled the past episodes of “19 Kids and Counting” from its schedule, but kept open the possibility that the show would resume someday.

Now it’s saying production of the series will not resume, despite its longtime popularity.

TLC released this official statement.
