Famous comedian and actress, Ellen DeGeneres, is considering retiring from her hit-talk show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” DeGeneres stated to New York Times that the show might come to an end in the next few years, but has questioned on whether she will retire afterwards. Although DeGeneres has extended her contract to the summer of 2020, she is still weighing in on all of her options–and the opinions of her wife, Portia de Rossi, and brother, Vance DeGeneres, are not making the decision any easier. The comedian has stated her concern for the difference in opinion from her sibling and significant other over her next career move.

“She often gets mad when my brother tells me I can’t stop,” explains DeGeneres, saying that her wife would much rather prefer if she walked away. De Rossi has commented on the issue and the advice she has passed on to DeGeneres: “I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity,” also saying that “there are other things she could tackle.” On the other hand, DeGeneres’ older brother urges her to stay on the show for many reasons, one being Trump and the country needing her “positive, unifying voice” in this day of age.

With sixteen seasons and more than 2,700 episodes since 2003, it is still unclear what will happen to the popular daytime show and it’s iconic host; however, DeGeneres is excited to say that she will be holding her first comedy special in fifteen years called “Ellen’s Game of Games” to be released on Netflix very soon.
