Ellen DeGeneres’ eponymous daytime talk show is ending with its upcoming 19th season, which is slated to air in Spring 2022. The decision to end the show was made by DeGeneres herself, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged — and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

Though the news comes in the wake of a controversial year for the talk show, which became the subject of behind-the-scenes controversy involving widespread accusations of a toxic workplace, DeGeneres made it clear that it was not the reason behind her decision to end the program. “If I was quitting the show because of that, I wouldn’t have come back this season,” the host explained. “So, it’s not why I’m stopping.”
