Arnold Schwarzenegger has terminated his ties with “The New Celebrity Apprentice.
“The former California governor told CNN in a statement that he will not be returning to host the reality program, which was once hosted by President Donald Trump.
“I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone — from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department — was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn’t have this baggage,” Schwarzenegger said in the statement.
NBC has not commented on Schwarzenegger’s decision. It has also not officially said whether it intends to pick up the show for another cycle.
