Ellen DeGeneres to end long-running TV talk show next year
Ellen DeGeneres is canceling her popular talk show, after 18 years.
Ellen DeGeneres spoke out about her talk show coming to an end during the opening monologue of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, May 13.
“Today I’m announcing that next season, season 19 is going to be my last,” the longtime host, 63, said in an emotional clip posted on Twitter on Wednesday, May 12. “The past 18 years have changed my life. You’ve changed my life. I am forever grateful to all of you for watching, for laughing, for dancing — sometimes crying. This show has been the greatest experience of my life and I owe it all to you.”
DeGeneres admitted that she “thought a lot about this decision,” but ultimately knew it was time to take her final bow.
