Matt Paxton is ready to live a life free of clutter-filled living rooms and cat-filled freezers.
The longtime star of the show Hoarders announced today via his Facebook page that Sunday’s episode of the show will be his last.
Matt stated that he is leaving the show, which is now in its 10th season, in order to spend more time at home with his family and to focus on his new business, Legacy Navigators, which helps families going through important life transitions.
“Made the decision last month to stay home for a year. So no TV or speeches for me next year,” Matt tweeted last month.
Matt’s post also let ‘Hoarders’ fans know that the show may be done after this season.
“It will be my last episode ever and possibly the series finale,” he wrote on Facebook on Thursday. “It’s been an amazing 7 years and I have to say we saved the best for last.”
Matt encouraged the show’s fans to tune into the special two-hour episode that will air on Sunday night.
“[It’s] the biggest hoard I have EVER been a part of: 2 hour special on this ONE home,” Matt wrote. “I had to have 40 guys there to help.”
The Ashley has reached out to A&E to get more information on the fate of ‘Hoarders,’ but in a Facebook comment, Matt hinted that it’s unlikely that the show will get picked up for another season.
“[I] hope they do come back for the fans, the crew and the people that like to watch,” Matt wrote. “Personally I’ve traveled with the camera and sound crews for 7 years now. [It’s] hard to believe they would just start shooting something else, [but] I hope the show does come back.”

Arghhhhhh. I need this show. I have a routine wherein I watch a few minutes of Hoarders, then go clean a closet or do some laundry. I am inspired to organize and clean when I see where hoarding can lead. This show is my unpaid therapist.
Bruja – Bwahahahahah!!!!! Bruja FTW
The final episode happens to be in my hometown. It is an amazing old mansion that was sold, but the hoarder tenant – an old woman – refuses to move out and barricades herself in her hoard.
That said, I love Hoarders and really hope it continues. I think it helps both the people directly aided and viewers as well. One of the few reality shows that perform a public service.
“It’s been an amazing 7 years and I have to say we saved the best for last.”
Your final episode is going to feature Leah Calvert and Amber Portwood diving into their hoards as they move from one trash filled, poorly maintained, roach and animal feces infested house into something they’ll ruin in less than a year!?
Don’t get my hopes up like that!
I give anyone props to be able to keep a family together while on tv for as long as he has. And to help people as their job in any way as a living, good job, guy.
