Ellen DeGeneres has filmed the final episode of her talk show and has thanked fans for their support over the years.
The 64-year-old presenter announced in May 2021 that she was ending her eponymous daytime show this year .
She reflected on how much the world has changed since she shot her first episode back in 2003 as she revealed she had taped the show for the final time.
She wrote on Instagram
“Today we taped the final episode of The Ellen Show which airs on May 26th.
“When we started this show in 2003, the iPhone didn’t exist. Social Media didn’t exist. Gay marriage wasn’t legal”.
“We watched the world change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not. But whatever was happening, my goal was always for the show to be a place where we could all come together and laugh for an hour, Being invited into your lives has been the greatest privilege of my life and has brought me incredible joy. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
She announced the series would be coming to an end in May 2021, saying in an episode of the show; “You may wonder why I’ve decided to end after 19 seasons”.
“The truth is, I always trust my instincts. My instinct told me it’s time.”
