    "Judge Judy" Is Ending After 24 Years

    There's a silver lining, though.

    Judge Judy is iconic. Judy Sheindlin can read people to filth like no other.

    As someone who is in her mid-twenties, I have no idea what life before Judge Judy was like.

    Here's some sad news: Judge Judy is officially coming to an end after 25 seasons.

    The show has been airing since 1996.

    The legendary judge will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, and in a preview of the upcoming episode, she revealed the news.

    "I've had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS [Television Distribution, which distributes the show], and it's been successful. Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS sort of felt, I think, 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 if you're already missing Judge Judy, there's great news: Judy has a new show in the works. "Judy Justice is coming out the year later [after Judge Judy ends]," she said to Ellen.

    When Ellen asked her what network it'd air on, Judy played coy and said she couldn't tell yet.

    Tune in to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to hear more about what the legendary judge has in store.
