Despite the Coronavirus crisis, some talk shows are returning to television.
Multiple outlets confirm that The Ellen DeGeneres Show, as well as The Wendy Williams Show and Rachael Ray Show, are set to with new episodes.
The shows have been on hiatus following the decision to shut down production over the ongoing pandemic. It is reported that the daytime hosts will film from home, as they practice self-quarantining.
“Since going into quarantine two weeks ago, I’ve been doing my show at home every day. But only for Portia. Starting Monday, you’ll be able to see it too, and I can’t wait,” said DeGeneres.
“I may not be in my purple chair, and it may not look the same but I’m very excited to get back to my Wendy Watchers … there’s so much uncertainty in all of our worlds right now and we need each other!” Williams said.
“This is a weird time, right? I can’t say there’s a silver lining; that’s just a wild exaggeration,” Ray said. “But there are found moments every day, and this is our found moment, for myself, John, and [our dog] Isaboo, that we get to share our home and some time with our viewers.”
