The Real (talk show)

The Real is an American syndicated talk show created by SallyAnn Salsano (495 Productions). The series initially received a trial run on Fox-owned markets in the summer of 2013 and premiered for full syndication in 2014. It is currently co-hosted by singer Adrienne Bailon, comedian Loni Love, television host Jeannie Mai, and actress Garcelle Beauvais.


Production

In the summer of 2013, it was announced that the series would be tested on seven Fox-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston and Tampa. In October 2013, it was announced that The Real would be nationally syndicated beginning September 15, 2014.

In February 2015, Warner Bros. announced the series had been renewed for a second season. In October 2015, the series was renewed for a third and fourth seasons, allowing it to air through 2018. The program switched to broadcasting live in its fourth season, allowing viewers "a seat at the table" starting September 2017.

In January 2018, the series was renewed for fifth and sixth seasons. In November 2019, the series was renewed for a seventh and eighth seasons through the 2021–2022 television season.

SallyAnn Salsano, who created the show, was executive producer along with Rachel Miskowiec until 2015, when Miskowiec took over; the show is produced by 495 Productions and Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.


Co-hosts

The original panel of The Real comprised five co-hosts: actress Tamera Mowry, television host Jeannie Mai, singer and television personality Tamar Braxton, singer and actress Adrienne Bailon and comedian and actress Loni Love. Braxton announced her departure on May 22, 2016, citing an intention to concentrate on her music career. In January 2020, actress and comedian Amanda Seales joined The Real as a permanent co-host during the series' sixth season. The following June, Seales exited the series, citing her dissatisfaction with the inability to openly speak on recent social issues as a reason, along with a lack of minority executive staff within Telepictures. The following month, Mowry announced her departure. In August, actress Garcelle Beauvais was announced as a permanent addition to the panel for season 7.
