Queen Latifah‘s short but sweet run as a daytime talk show host is about to end.

Production on The Queen Latifah Show, which is currently in its second season, will wrap by the end of the year. Original episodes of the show will continue to air on CBS-owned stations through March of 2015.

The host posted this goodbye on the show’s Facebook page:

“Just a little note to say Thank You. Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running. Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed ‘True Grit!’ Your Family, Partners, Staff and Crew showed up with you every step of the way. Be very proud of that! Not everyone can say the same,” she wrote.

“You can also say you have been a blessing to and been blessed by amazing guests and incredible audiences for this show. We truly changed people’s lives for the better. So … STAY POSITIVE, STAY STRONG, and most importantly, STAY OPEN … There is so much more God has in store! Lovingly, You!”

She also added, “P.S. This letter is for me, my staff, my crew, and everyone who was by my side for this incredible journey. The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome … believe in yourself and continue to fly.”

The Queen Latifah Show launched in September of 2013 with the intent to present human interest stories and celebrity interviews. This season, for example, Rene Russo made a routine appearance to promote her new movie Nightcrawler, but ended up revealing that she takes medication for bipolar disorder.
