Ellen DeGeneres is ending her talk show after 19 seasons because it’s no longer a challenge.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ellen DeGeneres is ending her talk show.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which is currently in its 18th season, will end in 2022 after the conclusion of its 19th season.

The decision to end the talk show took a long time, and it would likely have ended much sooner if the talk show host hadn’t been persuaded to continue by various people in her life.

“When you’re a creative person, you need to be challenged all the time – and as great and fun as this show is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” DeGeneres told THR.
