When is Ellen Degeneres’ Last Show? Socked Fans Want to Know
When is Ellen Degeneres’ last show? Is a virtual question right now, after the comedian said she will end her long-running daytime talk show that is dancing across TV screens for about two-decade.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, publishing Wednesday, DeGeneres announced, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” which established the comedian as an iconic character in TV, was no longer a challenge for her.
“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,” she told.
Producer Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, Mike Darnell, also confirmed the sad news of the show’s ending in an emailed statement, saying, “Although all good things must come to an end, you still have hope that the truly great things never will.” He added, It was and is an indelible piece of the television landscape, and it will be sorely missed.”
When is Ellen Degeneres’ Last Show 2021?
In reply to the question of “when is Ellen Degeneres’ last show?” she claimed the next season, her 19th, will be her last, adding she is looking for a new challenge.
DeGeneres previously told her staff about the decision on Tuesday, May 11th, and she’ll open up about it on Ellen Thursday, May 13th, with Oprah Winfrey. Ellen noted that she’d planned to end the show after its 16th season, however, signed a three-year agreement in 2018 knowing that it would be her final session.
A source said on Wednesday that DeGeneres “just feels like it’s time to move on,” continuing, “Ellen doesn’t feel any financial pressure to figure out her next move and wants to involve herself in work projects that make her happy and accomplished.”
Ellen first kicked off in 2003, and it’s since won 64 Daytime Emmys and aired more than 3,000 episodes which were a mix of celebrity interviews, entertaining games, and cute dancing.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show Backstage Rumors
The decision came soon after 63-year-old DeGeneres, and her show’s producers have recently come under serious scrutiny after sources revealed about an allegedly toxic workplace.
In a report published last July, anonymous ex-employees accused The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s managing producers of harassment, claiming they faced a culture of racism, fear, and intimidation there.
Some of these allegations believed DeGeneres’s behavior when she is offscreen was responsible for the toxic atmosphere, and that she wasn’t the kind person she seemed to be on TV.
“Being known as the ‘be-kind lady’ is a tricky position to be in,” she stated. “The truth is I am that person you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things. Sometimes I get sad, I get mad, I get anxious, I get frustrated, I get impatient. And I am working on all of that, and I’m especially working on the impatience thing. And it’s not going well because it’s not happening fast enough.”
