Ellen DeGeneres ends show after 19 years – amid ‘toxic’ allegations
Ellen DeGeneres is to end her show in 2022 after 19 years.
“As great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” she told the Hollywood Reporter.
It comes just a few months after the show faced accusations of being a toxic workplace.
The allegation led to three producers being fired, and Ellen coming under serious scrutiny. She kicked off her latest series with an on-air apology.
The show will end in 2022, after its 19th season.
The show’s ratings have declined since the allegations came to light and an internal investigation was launched.

“I was going to stop after season 16,” DeGeneres said. “That was going to be my last season and they wanted to sign for four more years and I said I’d sign for maybe for one.
“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.’
“So, we [settled] on three more years and I knew that would be my last. That was the plan all along.”
