Michael Jackson's family and fans will be relieved to learn that the controversial medical documentary, 'Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson,' has been shelved.

The Discovery television network announced Dec. 31 that it will no longer air the show, which features a reenactment of the superstar's autopsy, citing concerns from Jackson's estate and an upcoming court hearing as their reason for pulling the plug.

"Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson's estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson's official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely," Discovery Networks International said in a statement.
