The Ellen Show: One of the most popular English talk shows all around the world, The Ellen Show, has filmed the series finale, and concludes its shooting. Ellen debuted with the show in 2003 and is undoubtedly one of the most popular talk shows on television. Interviews with Hollywood’s elite, audience members dancing it out, and a slew of prize giveaways have all been featured on the show.
Former Ellen staff has said that the talk show had fostered a hostile work environment, which made news in 2020. Following the allegations, DeGeneres issued a long apology, and the show underwent significant adjustments behind the scenes. Last year, DeGeneres stated that season 19 of The Ellen Show will be the last season. She told The Hollywood Reporter at the time that the scandal was not the reason behind the decision.
However, the well-known talk show host has now signed off. Ellen announced on Twitter that shooting for the last episode of The Ellen Show had concluded. Ellen also commented on how much has changed throughout the show’s tenure in her message. Ellen’s series finale will be broadcast on May 26th, and the talk show presenter extended her appreciation to her viewers.
Ellen wrote in her emotional tweet, when we started this show in 2003, the iPhone didn’t exist. Social Media didn’t exist. Gay marriage wasn’t legal. We watched the world change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not. But whatever was happening, 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 lives has been the greatest privilege of my life and has brought me incredible joy. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Meanwhile, DeGeneres commemorated the 25th anniversary of her previous sitcom’s memorable coming-out episode on Thursday’s broadcast of the talk show. “Look at me now,” DeGeneres said as she reflected on her experience. As per PEOPLE, DeGeneres didn’t only come out as gay on April 30, 1997; her character on the ABC smash series Ellen did as well. The episode titled The Puppy Episode was taped in front of a live audience at the time.
