The famous Ellen DeGeneres show will be coming to an end on 26 May after 19 seasons with a star-studded sendoff paying “tribute to the trailblazing host”.
In a statement, a representative for the show said: “The lineup of special guests will pay tribute to the trailblazing host and share their favorite memories from DeGeneres’ 19 iconic seasons.”
In May 2021, Ellen announced she would be ending her long running chat show as she needed “something new to challenge her”.
At the time, she said: “I was going to stop after season 16. That was going to be my last season, and they wanted to sign for four more years and I said I’d sign maybe for one,” she said. “They were saying there was no way to sign for one. ‘We can’t do that with the affiliates and the stations need more of a commitment.’”
Ellen continued: “So, we [settled] on three more years, and I knew that would be my last. That’s been the plan all along.”
The show has aired over 3,200 episodes featuring nearly half a billion dollars of giveaways will be filled by the ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’.
The comic’s talk show which has been frequented by stars such as Taylor Swift, Channing Tatum, Michelle Obama and The Duchess of Sussex- has racked up over 4,000 guests since its 2003 debut.
