Mark Cuban to leave Shark Tank in 2025 after 15 years


Mark Cuban says he is planning to opt out from Shark Tank in 2025, which will complete his 15 years as a regular on the ABC unscripted series.

In a conversation with Hollywood Reporter, Cuban says that will leave the show after the next season is over, which will be in 2025.

The billionaire owner of the Mavericks initially revealed the decision in an All the Smoke podcast episode that aired last week. He had shared it with the host and former NBA players, Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes, that it was time for him to move on.


“I just want to have a couple summers with my teens before they go off on their own,” said Cuban in an email to THR. He added that him leaving the show has nothing to do with the show, as he loves being on it and loves what it represents and how it motivates the entrepreneurs around the world.

Earlier, in an interview with Forbes, the entrepreneur had revealed that he has already invested $29 million in at least 85 companies since joining Shark Tank.

He debuted in the season two of the series, which aired in 2012, and has been a regular ever since.
