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

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 TBEN.

The spin-off show, Growing Up Chrisley, which follows their children Chase, 25, and Savannah, 24, has also reportedly been let go. Todd was also supposed to host a dating show titled Love Limo, but it was canceled 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 broadcast the episodes filmed for the trial next year.

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

The duo, best known for the “Chrisley Knows Best” TV show, were sentenced Monday in Atlanta to a total of 19 years in prison — less than two days after their son was seriously injured in a car accident in Nashville.

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

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

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

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

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

In his testimony, he confessed not only his role in the Chrisleys’ years of fraud, but also his infidelity, which he allegedly hid from his wife for years before revealing it all to the world on the stand. Braddock was given immunity in exchange for his testimony.

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

They were also both 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 insisted they had done nothing wrong.

They claimed that someone else was in charge of their finances and therefore responsible for all crimes committed.

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