Default Keeping Up With The Kruger - Animal Planet

The series Keeping Up With The Kruger is currently airing on Animal Planet with episode 8 scheduled for 29 December. What will happen to the last 5 episodes once the channel has been discontinued?

One would think that all incomplete series / seasons that are on for the first time must surely be included in the sharing of some of their content on other Discovery channels?

I would expect that yes - and it is very disappointing that no details have been forthcoming.

At the very least incomplete premier series should be completed via CU (and no CU+) if not on another channel - and without having to wait several months.

The CU part should especially be possible, look what they managed to do for years with the old discontinued Discovery HD Showcase channel.

Hello

Discovery is aware of the interest in the show. They are looking at scheduling it from episode 1 on Discovery Channel, however, there isn't an expected broadcast date yet.

Thank you for advising. This is very disappointing and should have been though off when the decision was taken to no longer broadcast the channel. And I'm sure this is not the only series affected.
