Gabrielle Union No Longer On NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ After 1 Season

Bad news for those who loved seeing Gabrielle Union on their TV every week.

The actress and now former host of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” is leaving the show.

She just joined the panel of judges this year, but a representative for NBC said she won’t be back for the 2020 season.

Current judges Simon Cowell, who doubles as executive producer, and Howie Mandel along with host Terry Crews will be making their return for the season.

Interestingly enough, her co-judge Julianne Hough also won’t be returning.

It’s not clear what caused Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union’s exit, or whose decision it was, but Gabrielle Union’s friend Jemele Hill said she’s side-eyeing the move.

“My spidey senses are immediately raised because there is no comment from Gab in this story, which means some bulls*** went down. My 1A thought is… so all the women get the boot? Make it make sense y’all.”

Of course this isn’t the end for Union. She’s currently prepping for season two of Spectrum original “L.A.’s Finest”, which marks the spinoff of the Bad Boys movie franchise, with Duane Martin, Jessica Alba, and Zach Gilford.
