The popular daytime talk show which features celebrity guests, musical performances, sketches and lots of dancing was renewed through summer 2020 (the 2019-20 television season) in a deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
It has been on the air since 2003.
The series will continue to air on 10 of the NBC-owned stations, which include WNBC (New York), KNBC (Los Angeles) and KNTV (San Francisco Bay Area).
“Day in and day out Ellen [DeGeneres] delivers the best show on television,” Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, said.
“Ellen and her team produce a completely unique and exciting hour, which is appointment television for viewers everywhere. We are thrilled to continue our 13-year partnership with the NBC Stations which delivers to their communities the entertainment and inspiration of ‘Ellen.'”
