Ellen DeGeneres has extended her talk show deal through 2022.
The daytime host announced Wednesday that her Warner Bros. talk show would continue its run for three more years.
“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.”
“Ellen is, quite simply, a force of nature,” Peter Roth, president and CCO OF Warner Bros. Television Group said in a statement. “Her energy, intelligence, kindness, and creativity know no bounds. Whether it’s her instant connection to her guests on her flagship talk show, her warm and funny hosting on Game of Games, or the infectious enthusiasm she shares in producing everything from Little Big Shots to the animated antics of Green Eggs and Ham, it’s an honor to work alongside her. We’re thrilled to continue this fun and friendly journey with her.”
The Ellen DeGeneres Show continues to be a fan favorite and is currently in its 16th season. It has earned 63 Daytime Emmy Awards, including 11 for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show.
