Fans of Very Cavallari were disappointed to hear that the show was canceled back in May 2020. As for the reason behind the cancellation, star Kristin Cavallari told her fans on Instagram that she would not be moving forward with another season of the reality show, an indication that it was her decision to move on. The news about the show's cancellation came about a month after Cavallari announced that she was separating from her husband of about a decade, Jay Cutler.
On Instagram, Cavallari posted a snap from her time filming Very Cavallari to announce the news. In her caption for the post, she noted that she decided not to continue with the series as she embarks on "this new chapter in my life." She went on to share that she has loved working on Very Cavallari, which initially premiered back in July 2018, and that she was especially grateful to E! Entertainment for making the show possible. The reality star ended her statement by issuing a message directly to her fans, writing, "I can't thank you enough for all your support and for keeping up with me all of these years. I love you guys."

Almost a month before this announcement, Cavallari expressed another major update to her fans. On April 26, 2020, she announced that she and Cutler were separating after ten years together. In her statement, which Cutler also posted on his Instagram account, she expressed that their separation was simply the result of two people growing apart. The statement read, "We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of. This is just the situation of two people growing apart. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate this difficult time within our family."
In May 2020, PEOPLE reported that Cavallari and Cutler reached custody and property agreements. The couple, who share three children, Camden, Jaxon, and Saylor, "entered into a Permanent Parenting Plan" that involves the pair being named "joint primary residential parents." They will reportedly spend 182.5 days a year with their children and will alternate who gets to spend time with them on various holidays and school breaks. The publication also reported that the kids will "spend time with each parent in their respective residence during said parent's respective parenting time." In February, Us Weekly reported that Cavallari asked to remove her estranged husband's last name and to have her maiden name restored. However, their divorce has still yet to be finalized.
