Popular courtroom show, Judge Judy, is coming to an end after an incredible 25 seasons on television.
According to Variety, Judge Judy Sheindlin is set to make the announcement on Ellen this Monday. The final season will run through the 2020-2021 TV season before the network will begin to rerun episodes.
“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful,” Sheindlin reportedly told Ellen. “Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS, I think, sort of felt, they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program, because now they have 25 years of reruns. So what they decided to do was to sell a couple of years’ worth of reruns.”
But, this does not mean that she is retiring from television. In fact, she already has another show in the works:
“I’m not tired. So ‘Judy Justice’ will be coming out a year later… ‘Judge Judy’ you’ll be able to see next year, full year, all new shows. The following couple of years, you should be able to catch all the reruns that are currently carrying Judy, and ‘Judy Justice’ will be going elsewhere. Isn’t that fun?”
