Todd and Julie Chrisley reality shows CANCELLED after married couple are sentenced to prison


Todd and Julia Chrisley’s three reality shows have been cancelled, after the couple were sentenced to combined 19 years in prison earlier today for tax evasion.

Chrisley Knows Best, which debuted in 2014 and aired for nine seasons, following Todd, 53, Julie, 49, and their family, has been axed according to Deadline. 

The spin-off show, Growing Up Chrisley, which follows their kids Chase, 25, and Savannah, 24, has also reportedly been let go. Todd was also set to host a dating show titled Love Limo, but that has been cancelled as well.

Chrisley Knows Best was renewed for a tenth season in May and USA Network – where the show originally aired before moving to E! – will air the episodes filmed before the trial next year. 

The couple were sentenced to 12 years and seven years in prison respectively – months after they were found guilty in their $30million tax fraud case.

The duo, best known for TV show ‘Chrisley Knows Best,’ were sentenced in Atlanta on Monday to a combined total of 19 years in jail – less than two days after their son was seriously injured in a car crash in Nashville.

Todd and Julie will also serve 16 months of probation each upon their release.

The news comes five months after the Chrisleys were found guilty on criminal bank fraud and tax evasion charges, as prosecutors said they took out $30 million in fraudulent bank loans.

Prosecutors said the couple used the money to fund their lifestyle, even before they had become reality stars. Todd and Julia also used a production company to hide income from the IRS, lawyers argued.

During the dramatic trial earlier this year, a shocking testimony given by Chrisley’s former employee-turned-lover Mark Braddock revealed that he had a year-long gay affair with the reality star in the early 2000s – while they were both married to their respective wives.

Braddock sensationally turned against his ex-lover and business partner on the stand, when he told the jury that he had not only been witness to the Chrisleys’ crimes, but had helped to commit them.

His testimony also saw him confessing not only to his role in the Chrisleys’ years-long fraud, but to his infidelity, which he is said to have kept hidden from his wife for years before revealing it all to the world on the stand. Braddock was granted immunity in return for testifying.

Before Monday’s sentencing, officials had stated that Todd was facing up to 22 years while Julie could have served up to 13.

They had also both been charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Julie was also charged with wire fraud and obstruction of justice.

Throughout their legal troubles, the Chrisleys maintained they had done nothing wrong. 

They claimed that someone else had been in charge of their finances, and therefore responsible for any and all crimes committed.

Aside from Chase and Savannah, the couple – who have been married 26 years – also share Lindsie, 32; Kyle, 30; and Grayson, 16.
