Reports recently revealed this after accusations that she allowed a toxic work environment, and the world has been reacting.
According to Daily Mail, after 18 seasons on air and amazing ratings, Ellen is set to make an announcement detailing why she is totally done.
A source added that the fact that several former and current employees of the show accused the 63-year-old host of ignoring bullying by executives also played a role in the decision.
Her words, “She’s promised one more season after this one and will exit at the end of the 2021/2022 season.”
