Judge Judy will end its run after 25 seasons.
Multiple outlets confirm that Judy Sheindlin will be striking the gavel for the last season of the long-running court series. But Sheindlin already has plans to launch a new show titled Judy Justice.
“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful,” Sheindlin told Ellen DeGeneres on Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “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.”
She added, “I’m not tired. So Judy Justice will be coming out a year later… Judge Judy you’ll be able to see next year, full year, all new shows. The following couple of years, you should be able to catch all the reruns that are currently carrying Judy, and Judy Justice will be going elsewhere. Isn’t that fun?”
