Ellen DeGeneres Wants To Make A Full Comeback After Losing Her Talk Show For THIS Reason!

Ellen DeGeneres Is Ready To Step Back Into The Spotlight After Losing Her Talk Show -- Details

Ellen DeGeneres wants to make a comeback… but are people ready for it?

The 66-year-old comedian very publicly fell out of grace back in 2020 when she was accused by then-current and former Ellen DeGeneres Show employees alike of facilitating a toxic work environment. From allegedly penalizing people for taking medical leave, rumored racial microaggressions, reportedly not wanting employees to look her in the eye, and sooo much more. You can catch up on all of that HERE.

It was announced in 2021 that The Ellen Degeneres Show would be coming to an end after a 19-year run, and in 2022, the talk show host made her final appearance on the now-axed show. Two years have now passed, and Ellen has remained relatively out of the spotlight. But it sounds like she feels the spotlight is exactly where she was born to be — and she’s dead set on making a comeback!

In April, she put out feelers with a stand–up comedy set at the Largo in El Lay. There, she talked about being “the most hated person in America,” being “kicked out of show business,” hating the “way the show ended,” and the mental toll everything took on her. During her set, she teased that audiences “need more laughter and less drama,” and in May, announced a major deal: a Netflix special!

Dubbed Ellen’s Last Stand… Up, the special is set to film in Minneapolis in August. And after having so much time to think things over, she’ll reportedly be talking about EVERYTHING during it! A friend told Page Six over the weekend:

“Ellen is a comedian. They all have their peccadillos, but this is her life and she wants to talk about everything she went through and where she is now in her life, sharing who she is. Look at Jerry Seinfeld, he does stand-up all the time. Why shouldn’t she get back on stage?”

A second friend added:

“She needed some time to recover. But she’s an artist, she wants to entertain — she can’t just sit at home.”

Inneresting… We wonder how audiences will feel! But while she may be returning to the stage, don’t expect her to pick up another talk show anytime soon! A Hollywood insider told the outlet:

“Why would she go back? She accomplished so much, she made great entertainment. She has refocused her life and her priorities.”

There’s probably just too much stink associated with that, anyway…

But as for her August Netflix special, it’ll be her first since 2018, and is apparently packed with “funny” material. A friend told the outlet:

“Ellen has spent a lot of time writing and working on something very funny. The bottom line is that for her own soul she needs to work and to entertain people.”

Well, audiences will ultimately be the judge of that! Are you ready for Ellen to step back into the spotlight, Perezcious readers? Has it been long enough?? Let us know in the comments down below.
