"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" premiered in 2003. DeGeneres told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview that she plans to end her long-running talk show after 19 seasons next May.
"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 magazine. The comedian, 63, said that the daytime series would end after the upcoming 2021-2022 season.
