Ellen DeGeneres revealed how he felt about the continuation from his long -running talk show.
The comedian, 63, spoke at an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, to air on Thursday, May 13, about why he decided end his season series 19 in the spring of 2022.
“In the last 18 years, you have to know, that has changed my life. You have all changed my life. And forever I thank you all for watching, for laughing, for dancing, sometimes crying, “he said as he chuckled into the air. “The show has been the best experience of my life, and I owe you everything. So thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Ellen explained that she “thought a lot about this decision” and discussed it with her wife, Portia de Rossi.
“I’ve been with it for a while. I’ve been mediating about it,” he said. “Two years ago, I signed a deal for three more years, and I always knew in my heart that season 19 was my last.”
