Ellen DeGeneres will stay in daytime TV for at least three more years, into 2022

Despite whatever vibes you thought Ellen DeGeneres was giving you in her Netflix comedy special, she is not leaving daytime television anytime soon.

DeGeneres announced last week that she’d signed a contract extension for three more years of Ellen. That’ll keep her in syndicated daytime TV until at least 2022.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show has earned 63 Daytime Emmy Awards over its first 16 years on the air. Season 17 will begin in September.
