Courtroom reality show “Judge Judy” is concluding after 25 years, CNN has affirmed.
Host Judy Sheindlin at first uncovered the news during a pre-taped appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” says the show’s upcoming season would be it’s last on CBS.
“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful. Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary,” the iconic star said in a teaser clip from the upcoming episode which airs Monday.
As indicated by the 77-year-old host, the network decided to utilize repeats of the program.
“What they decided to do was sell a couple of years’ worth of reruns,” the Emmy Award-winning TV personality revealed.
Even though the court will soon be suspended, Sheindlin said it isn’t the stopping point as she seems to be “not tired.”
She teased that a new show – “Judy Justice” – will be coming out one year from now.
Be that as it may, Sheindlin, who has managed small court cases on “Judge Judy” since the show’s launch in 1996, stayed tight-lipped about where the new show would air, just telling DeGeneres: “I can’t tell you yet.”
CNN has connected with CBS Television Distribution for comment on Sheindlin’s departure.
“Judge Judy,” which is as of now in its 24th season, is a firm TV top choice.
In 2015, Sheindlin renewed her agreement with CBS, stretching out her deal to have “Judge Judy” through to its 25th season.
In 2018, Forbes named her the year’s highest-paid TV host after she sold the rights to her show’s extensive library to CBS for an expected $100 million in 2017.
