“Judge Judy” to end after 25 seasons


Since 1996, Judy Sheindlin, better known as Judge Judy has been a mainstay of afternoon television but on an episode of the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” scheduled to air March 2, she announced her long-running courtroom show was coming to an end after its next season.

“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS and it’s been successful,” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS, I think 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.”

Sheindlin added that she was “not tired” and would have a new show coming out in a year called “Judy Justice.” She did not offer much detail on the concept of the new show.

“Judge Judy” won three Emmys during its run.
