Ellen DeGeneres Extends Her Talk Show Through 2022

Ellen DeGeneres fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as the comic will continue hosting her namesake talk show through 2022. <i>Variety </i>reports the announcement came following rumors she might leave the show when her current contract expired in 2020. “[From] the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the <i>Fifty Shades of Grey </i>phase,” DeGeneres said on Tuesday’s episode. “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. I just signed for three more years.” Warner Brothers Television Group president Peter Roth added, “Ellen is, quite simply, a force of nature…We’re thrilled to continue this fun and friendly journey with her.”
