In a statement Tuesday, the TV channel said it won’t renew Osmond’s talk show, “Marie,” for a second season.

The show’s producer and distributor, Associated Television International, said that “Marie” was going into syndication as originally intended. A fall 2014 launch is planned, the company said.
