Ellen DeGeneres‘ The Ellen DeGeneres Show has extended its talk show run through 2022!
The 61-year-old comedian and host made the announcement on Tuesday (May 21) in an episode that will air tomorrow.
“I’m excited to announce that I’ll be doing my show for three more years,” she told the audience. “Mostly because I love doing it so much every day, but also because that takes me to the end of my car lease.”
“[From] the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship,” she added. “We’ve been through the good, the bad, the Fifty Shades of Grey phase. 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.”
The show is currently in its 16th season, featuring celebrity interviews, musical performances, topical stories, extraordinary human-interest guests, and sought-after viral sensations worldwide.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is set to return for Season 17 on September 9!
