Joan Rivers may have lost her life but her television presence will apparently linger long after.
Rivers had filmed two episodes of the upcoming The Celebrity Apprentice season as a task advisor on NBC and also wrapped taping the entire fourth season of Joan & Melissa: Joan Know Best? in May, Entertainment Weeklyreported.
WE tv is reportedly planning to air a marathon of Joan & Melissa: Joan Know Best? on Sunday. The seventh season of The Celebrity Apprentice does not have a premiere date scheduled yet.
"Joan Rivers was truly one of a kind -- a trailblazer, an icon and, above all else, a gracious, thoughtful and candidly funny woman who loved her family, friends and fans dearly across a legendary career that spanned five decades," WE tv said in a statement obtained by EW.
"We were fortunate and honored to have her on WE tv and to allow our viewers to share her life, humor and indefatigable spirit. We send our deepest condolences to her daughter Melissa, grandson Cooper, and all her family, friends and fans."
As for the future of Fashion Police on E!, show executives had originally planned to take two weeks off when Rivers was hospitalized. However, now that she's passed away, a representative for the network reportedly commented, "Right now we are mourning our beloved Joan. We will respond at a later date with programming updates."
The QVC had already canceled all programming for Rivers' shows after learning of her medical condition.
"We are greatly saddened by the loss of our dear friend Joan Rivers. She has been a special part of our QVC family for 24 years, and we knew Joan not only as an extraordinary comedian, writer, producer and business leader, but as a generous and caring spirit, who inspired us to be better every day," the QVC said in a statement obtained by EW.
"Joan truly loved her customers, and delighted in bringing joy and inspiration to their lives over these last many years. We extend our deepest sympathies to her family, friends and fans."
Rivers will reportedly be one of the subjects of the documentary MAKERS: Women in Comedy, which will air September 30 on PBS. She had previously won The Celebrity Apprentice's second season in 2009.
