Stephen “tWitch” Boss, co-executive producer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, isn't surprised that the chatfest is set to wrap after 19 seasons. In fact, he told E! News, he felt that the news made sense.
Boss explained that DeGeneres:
had announced it three years ago that she signed on for three more year. So I felt that she was going to stay true to that. It actually didn't come as a surprise because she had already said it, you know?
She's been working really, really, really hard. So there wasn't something that was in me that was like, 'Oh, she's definitely going to renew again.'
Boss is anticipating the thrill of the final season, noting:
Even just thinking one more year, it's like, man, this is going to be our farewell season so I know we're going to continue everything we've been doing but it's going to be bumped up a notch. And just the idea of the help and the love and the laughs that have come from the show and then you put the notion of, 'We're going to go out with a bang,' on top of that? Like that's really exciting.
