Gosselin reportedly broke his silence on the cancellation news in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, saying he was "very relieved" his kids would be away from the cameras. "Contracts have to end at some point. I think everything had run its course and it was time to come to an end anyways."
In 2009, Jon was dropped from "Jon & Kate Plus 8," just months after the couple separated. He currently lives near his ex-wife's home in a Pennsylvania apartment.
The 34-year-old dad seems to be concentrating on the bright side of the bittersweet situation, stating, "I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future."
As for Kate, Gosselin said, "I have no clue what her next move is. I hope she dedicates more time to the kids now and I wish her the best as she goes forward with whatever career she wants to pursue."
The series finale of "Kate Plus 8" will air September 12 on TLC.
