Ellen DeGeneres will end talk show after 18 years

Ellen DeGeneres announced Wednesday that her talk show is coming to an end after 18 years on air, according to E! News.

On May 12, hostess Ellen DeGeneres confirmed the syndicated talk show will end after its 19th season. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, DeGeneres shared, “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 previously revealed that she was contemplating leaving the show in a 2018 interview with The New York Times. At the time, she explained that her brother, Vance DeGeneres, opposed the idea, while her wife, Portia de Rossi, was in favor of the move, E! News reports. 

Two years later, the show was the subject of an internal investigation following multiple reports of workplace misconduct. DeGeneres herself was never accused of misconduct in any form, but she addressed the controversy in a letter to staff last July, E! News confirmed. 

Executive producer Andy Lassner later confirmed changes were being made to the show and promised the controversy would not impact Ellen’s hosting duties. In an August tweet, he shared, “Nobody is going off the air.”
