Ellen DeGeneres to End Talk Show After Next Season

Must read



Ellen DeGeneres said she will end her long-running daytime talk show after a nearly two-decade run that established the comedian as an iconic figure in television.

Producer Warner Bros. Unscripted Television confirmed the show’s ending. Warner Bros. is part of AT&T Inc.

“Although all good things must come to an end, you still have hope that the truly great things never will,” Mike Darnell, the president of Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, said in an emailed statement. “It was and is an indelible piece of the television landscape, and it will be sorely missed.”

Ms. DeGeneres told The Hollywood Reporter the show’s next season, its 19th, will be her last. She said she is looking for a new challenge.

Known for a mix of celebrity interviews, lighthearted games and occasional dancing, Ms. DeGeneres’s program has been a fixture in daytime TV. The show, which is syndicated to TV stations across the U.S., averages more than a million viewers and is a reliable generator of viral video clips. Recent guests have included comedian Eddie Murphy, TV host Michael Strahan and actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
