Chrisley Knows Best when it comes to being canceled!

After Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted by a federal grand jury on Tuesday, August 13 for tax evasion and other financial crimes, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that USA Network has decided to sever ties with the famous family and will "not be renewing their contracts for season 8!"

According to a source, network execs have "decided to distance themselves as much as possible" from Todd, 50, and Julie, 46, as well as their spinoff star children Savannah and Chase.

In addition to Chrisley Knows Best being on the chopping black, the show's spinoff, Growing Up Chrisley, which stars Savannah, 22, and Chase, 23, could also be cut.

"At this point, it is just a liability to film with them and, to be honest, Todd and Julie can't film anything if they are in prison," the insider added.

As Radar previously reported, Todd revealed in an Instagram post on Monday, August 12 that he and Julie were "being named in a federal indictment for tax evasion and other financial crimes." In the post, he blamed a "disgruntled former employee" for the financial crimes.

In court papers obtained from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Georgia’s Northern District just one day after Todd's post, the reality star couple and their accountant Peter Tarantino were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, wire fraud conspiracy, wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax evasion.

As Radar reported, Todd and Julie are scheduled to turn themselves in on Wednesday, August 14 in Atlanta court. Tarantino is expected to turn himself in one day later, on Thursday.

Radar reached out to USA Network for comment, and got no response.
