63-year-old ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ host Ellen DeGeneres has finally announced that her show is coming to an END!
After 3000 episodes and 19 seasons, Ellen says that her daytime talk-and-variety show will not return after 2022.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Ellen added: “I was going to stop after season 16. That was going to be my last season and they wanted to sign for four more years and I said I’d sign for maybe for one. They were saying there was no way to sign for one. “We can’t do that with the affiliates and the stations need more of a commitment.” So, we [settled] on three more years and I knew that would be my last. That’s been the plan all along. And everybody kept saying, even when I signed, “You know, that’s going to be 19, don’t you want to just go to 20? It’s a good number.” So is 19.” Read more here.
