‘Fashion Police’ will continue without Joan Rivers; E! announces return date

E! Logo -For all of you who love “Fashion Police,” we come bearing some news today: With the blessing of Melissa Rivers, the show will officially continue early next year. Joan, prior to her stunning death this year, was well-known for being one of the most outspoken fashion personalities out there. This is why “Fashion Police” became a hit, and it was a cornerstone to her comeback following her time on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

Well, it has now been confirmed that next year, the series will return, though it is unclear whether or not Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic, and George Kotsiopoulos will also be back. (For now, we would assume so.)

In a statement today on the subject, the network had the following to say:

“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. 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 Melissa Rivers’ blessing, that Joan would have wanted the franchise to continue. Fashion Police will return in 2015 commencing with Golden Globes coverage on Monday, Jan. 12. No further details will be announced at this time.”

There is obviously plenty of time for E! to figure out some of the finer details when it comes to this announcement, and we are sure that they will take their time to make sure that the show is right. We just hope that they find a way to make the story equally biting.
