In a statement, E! said, “We are deeply saddened by the loss of Joan Rivers and, for the last two weeks, have turned our attention to honoring her memory on all of our platforms…we have also thought long and hard about what Joan would have wanted as it pertains to the future of ‘Fashion Police,'” which led to the decision to continue the show, the channel said. E! did not mention if there would be a replacement for Joan on the show.

New episodes of “Fashion Police” will air in January 2015.
