After 25 years, Judge Judith Sheindlin is ready to hang up her gavel, revealing on The Ellen Show that Judge Judy will be ending its historic run.
“Well, I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful,” the TV court judge said. “Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS, I think, sort of 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.”
But wait, it’s not exactly a goodbye, as TV’s highest paid judge revealed, “But I’m not tired, so Judy Justice will be coming out a year later.”
