Ellen will just have to “be kind” somewhere else it seems…
The final season of The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be homeless in Australia when it begins in the USA in September, with neither Nine nor Foxtel acquiring rights.
A Nine spokesperson said, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show won’t be returning to Channel 9 for its nineteenth and final season. It’s been a tremendous run and we wish Ellen all the best for her last season.”
Foxtel has also confirmed to TV Tonight it will not screen on FOX Arena.
This follows negative press coverage and sliding ratings for the series, which will begin stateside on September 13 and conclude in 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 recently told The Hollywood Reporter.
