The Ellen DeGeneres Show Last Episode Date — Read Finale Statement

That’s a wrap on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

After 19 seasons, Ellen DeGeneres recorded her last episode of the popular syndicated talk show on Thursdaywhich will be broadcast on Thursday 26 May.

“When we started this show in 2003, the iPhone didn’t exist. Social media did not exist. Same-sex marriage was not legal,” she wrote Twitter† “We saw the world change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not. But no matter what, my goal was always for the show to be a place where we could all come together and laugh for an hour.

“Being invited into your life has been the greatest privilege of my life and has brought me incredible joy,” her statement continued. “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

DeGeneres announced that she would be leaving her chat show of the same name last May. “If you’re a creative person you have to be constantly challenged – and as great as this show is, and as much fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” she told our sister bar The Hollywood Reporter† She later spoke of her daytime retirement on the show, adding: “You may wonder why I decided to retire after 19 seasons. The truth is I always trust my instincts. My instincts told me it’s time. ”

DeGeneres’ talk show had a rough year, with allegations that the series was a toxic workplace. DeGeneres acknowledged the scandal in the season 18 premiere last fall. However, the comedian told THR that the controversy and hit in ratings it caused weren’t why she pulled the plug.
