Both of the Minnesota shows are tagged to be filmed for her Netflix special "Ellen's Last Stand… Up."

Ellen's talk show "The Ellen Degeneres Show" had a 19-season run from 2003 ending in May of 2022. "When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged — and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore," DeGeneres said.

Prior to her daytime talk show, Ellen starred in the Emmy Award-winning sitcom 'Ellen' from 1994 to 1998
