The Progressive Era is generally said to have ended with WWI. So the answer to your question would be that World War I essentially ended Progressivism.
After WWI, the US entered an era that is generally known as "the Roaring '20s" and is said to be the time when the country enjoyed a "return to normalcy." During the 1920s, the country moved away from the reform spirit that had motivated Progressivism. In place of that, there was simply a desire to have political peace and a desire to enjoy everyday life. These desires are said to have ended Progressivism.
