“TLC is done with Jon. They have him under contract still, but they don’t plan to use him,” one TV source told RadarOnline.com.

As for Jon & Kate Plus 8, the big question is will the show return.

“The show could come back as a series of specials,” the TV source told RadarOnline.com. “It made the network a lot of money.”

Despite the financial muscle of Jon & Kate Plus 8, TLC has no plans to bring the show back right now, RadarOnline.com has learned.
