It doesn't look like it will be the end of DeGeneres's career but leaving would allow her to explore other creative avenues.
Ellen DeGeneres said she’s considering ending her popular daytime talk show.
The comedian told The New York Times on Wednesday that her hosting duties on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” may come to an end in the next few years. DeGeneres said she recently extended her contract until the summer of 2020, but has grappled with whether or not to retire after that.
She added that conflicting advice from her brother, Vance DeGeneres, and her wife, Portia de Rossi, hasn’t made her decision easier.
“She gets mad when my brother tells me I can’t stop,” DeGeneres said about de Rossi, who has advised the comedian to walk away from the talk show.
