‘Judge Judy’ is Ending After 25 Years!

It’s the end of the road for Judy Sheindlin, but the beginning of another journey!

During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Judy revealed that her court show, Judge Judy, will be wrapping up its run after 25 years. However, she’s prepping a follow-up show titled Judy Justice. 

“I’m not tired,” she told Ellen. “You’re not tired, you’re not supposed to stop!”

She went on to explain that she decided to end the show after selling Judge Judy‘s 5,200-episode library, as well as rights to future episodes of the syndicated program, to CBS for an estimated $100 million back in 2017.

“I’ve had a 25-year long marriage with CBS and it’s been successful. 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,” she said. “So what they decided to do was sell a couple of years worth of reruns.”

That decision, of course, opened up a lot of her time.

Judy Justice will be coming out a year later,” she said. “Judge Judy you’ll be able to see, next year, a full year, all new shows. The following couple of years you’ll be able to catch all the reruns that CBS has sold to the stations that are currently carrying Judy. After that, Judy Justice will be going elsewhere.”

Well, we can’t wait to catch Judy Justice!
