The Ellen Show is coming to an end. Ellen DeGeneres has confirmed that season 19 will be the last one of the long-running talk show. She informed her staff on May 11 about the decision and that she will be sitting with her longtime friend Oprah Winfrey on May 13 to discuss the end of her Daytime show.
“When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged — and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” DeGeneres told The Hollywood Reporter.
This past year, The Ellen Show has been in news when BuzzFeed News did an exposé in July 2021 detailing allegations of a toxic workplace. This prompted Ellen DeGeneres to kick off an internal investigation and fired the key executives.
