“People from all over the world have been part of my journey since the beginning – twenty years ago – and I’m so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all.”

While Hudson’s new show airs on a different network than Warner Bros. Ellen’s TV, Degeneres’ production company, Telepictures, is working on Hudson’s show.

Additionally, “executive producers Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly served as showrunners on Hudson’s test show, which was filmed last fall on the DeGeneres stage.”

She continued, “I’ve always loved people and can’t wait to connect on a deeper level and let the audience see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return.

“And I couldn’t be more thrilled to do it alongside this incredible team. We’re going to have fun and shake things up a bit!”

DeGeneres announced in May that she was ending her long-running show after 19 seasons when her contract expires in 2022, following a toxic workplace scandal that has plagued the comedian and also the show long term.

Ellen responded to accusations from current and former employees that she fostered a toxic workplace and apologized during an opening monologue on her show last season.

Ellen – who is married to Portia de Rossi – pondered the decision “for a while”, but also admitted that when she wrote a three-season extension two years ago she knew the 19th series would be her last.

“I thought about that decision a lot, I sat with her for a while. I pondered that, I talked to Portia, I talked to myself,” he said. she said in a pre-recorded video shared on Twitter.

“Two years ago I signed a contract for three more years, and I always knew in my heart that season 19 would be my last. Nineteen is a big number. The 19th Amendment gave the women the right to vote, and I believe women should be allowed to vote.

“You may be wondering why I decided to end after 19 seasons and the truth is that I still trust my instincts.” My instinct told me it was time.
