Long-time Judge Judy television personality Judy Sheindlin said that her CBS show will be coming to an end after concluding its 2020 to 2021 season, its 25th in total.
“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful,” she said to the talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. “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.”
Sheindlin mentioned another show in the works, Judy Justice, but did not provide any further details. Judge Judy remains one of television’s top reality courtroom series, winning three Emmy Awards and leading the ratings. Sheindlin is currently the highest-paid television personality with an annual salary of $47 million.
