The AP reports that TLC is officially canceling “19 Kids and Counting” in the wake of revelations that Josh Duggar, the eldest son of the Duggar clan, was accused of multiple accounts of underage sexual abuse back in 2004.

The show about Christian conservative couple Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their many offspring aired for ten often-controversial seasons, before being pulled from the air in May after news of the allegations against Josh surfaced.

TLC also announced its plans to initiate an ongoing campaign raising awareness about childhood sexual abuse, beginning with an hourlong documentary that is scheduled to air in August.
