New York, 12th January: Ellen Lee DeGeneres, the American comedian and television host, who got to fame through ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show, came under series of scandals regarding her show during 2020.
Baaghi TV: The harassment scandals and rumours at Ellen’s workplace caused quite a stir in the Tinseltown during the end of last year.
Following DeGeneres’s COVID-19 diagnosis on Dec 10, the news started circulating about her show coming to an end after the production came to a halt last year.
Now with the show’s production currently paused, rumours have been escalating about whether the talk show host will be back on sets or not.
Rumours further elevated when even after her recovery, there had been no news about when the chat show will resume.
According to the reports from HollywoodLife, there is no truth in the stories making rounds all over social media.
However, a spokesperson for Telepictures [the show’s producer] has now clarified on why the production was delayed.
The spokesperson said to the Deadline, “Due to the COVID-19 surge in Los Angeles County, and for the continued safety of our staff and crew, The Ellen DeGeneres Show will push production by a week.”
Later, while talking to People, the rep said, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show will resume production in-studio on Monday, January 11th with a virtual audience.”
“For the safety of the staff and crew, the show will further reduce on-site personnel and maintain our industry-leading production protocols,” they added.
It is to be noted that back in May 2019, DeGeneres had confirmed of signing a new deal to continue her show through 2022, thereby nullifying all the rumours about the cancellation of her show.
