We'll be sad to see her go, but we're VERY excited for these final episodes!
Oprah's company Harpo Prods. has announced plans for the last couple of eps of the show.
According to a statement released by Harpo, the third-to-last and second-to-last episodes will be taped at the United Center in Chicago "to accommodate 'the biggest names in movie, music and TV.' ”
Here's what executive producer Sheri Salata had to say about Oprah's farewell:
“As most of our viewers know, being surprised is not one of Oprah’s favorite things. In the spirit of our farewell season, she is making a rare exception and we intend to make the most of the opportunity. It will be something to see!”
The two-part celeb-filled episodes will air on May 23-24. The series finale airs on May 25.
This is the way The Oprah Winfrey Show ends…and we fully approve! Way to go out with a bang!
Are U excited for the final three episodes of Oprah? What will U do after the show ends?
