“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” will remain on the air through 2022.
On Tuesday, DeGeneres made the announcement that she signed a deal to continue her talk show for three more seasons.
DeGeneres revealed the news to the studio audience by comparing her show to a relationship.
“From the beginning, I said that this show was going to be like a relationship. We have been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ phase, and it’s been a lot of fun, and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t, you’re stuck with me because I just signed for three more years,” DeGeneres said.
