goss 03/03/2020

Order in the court! After 25 years on our screens, the iconic day-time TV show 'Judge Judy' is coming to an end in 2021.

Judy Sheindlin, age 77, has been on the show since it began and is one of the best paid personalities on TV, earning roughly $75 million NZD a year.

She spoke about the show's end and her future TV plans during an appearance on Ellen...

“CBS sort of felt, I think, they wanted to optimally utilise the repeats of my program," she told Ellen.

But it's not all bad news - she also teased the start of a new show called 'Judy Justice' next year.

"[For] the following couple of years you should be able to catch all the re-runs that CBS has sold to the stations and Judy Justice will be going elsewhere."
