Judge Judy is Leaving the Air After 25 Years
After 25 years it will see you later not goodbye! Judge Judy will be leaving the air after 25 years on CBS but host Judy Sheindlin says, at the same time, she isn’t ready to hang up her gavel just yet. Judy was a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show last week where she told DeGeneres that the 2020-21 season of Judge Judy will also be it’s last!
“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful,” she said. “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,” she said. “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 I’m not tired, so Judy Justice will be coming out a year later.”
Asked by Ellen where viewers will be able to watch the new show, Judge Judy replied: “I can’t tell you yet.”
She expanded upon the news slightly: “Judge Judy, you’ll be able to see next year — a full year, all new shows. … The following couple of years, you should be able to catch all the reruns that CBS has sold to the stations that are currently carrying Judge Judy, and Judy Justice will be going elsewhere. Isn’t that fun?”
