Ellen DeGeneres, the famous comedian and former talk show host, is making a comeback Netflix with a bang! Netflix has officially announced that DeGeneres will star in a brand new stand-up comedy special, marking her return to the streaming giant since her 2018 special, “Relatable.”

However, the excitement has been laced with a hint of nostalgia, as the star herself revealed that this upcoming special will be her final recording. In a statement shared with People magazine, DeGeneres addressed the curiosity surrounding her return, confirming, “Yes, I’m going to talk about it. Yes, this is my last special.”

She also couldn’t resist expressing her admiration for her wife, Portia de Rossi, and added, “Yes, Portia really is that beautiful in real life.” Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of Stand-Up and Comedy Formats, praised DeGeneres as a true legend and pioneer and eagerly awaited the release of her latest comedy venture later this year, according to People magazine.

Produced by Ben Winston and Fulwell73, the special show promises to showcase DeGeneres at her comedic best, covering a variety of topics including the end of her iconic show, ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, after its successful 19 seasons in 2022. DeGeneres will embark on a multi-city stand-up tour in San Diego on June 19. Her statement suggests that this show marks an important conclusion in her comedy career.

Despite recent controversies and her departure from daytime television, DeGeneres remains steadfast in her commitment to spreading joy through laughter. Addressing attendees during her show in April, she emphasized the importance of humor in difficult times, hinting at a desire for more laughter and less drama. With her final Netflix special on the horizon, fans are eagerly awaiting one last rowdy ride with Ellen DeGeneres, saying goodbye to an era full of laughter and entertainment.
