The gavel has been hammered – Judge Judy is cancelled.
CBS has decided not to renew Judge Judy in its current format. The 2020-21 season will be its 25th and final season.
Judge Judy Sheindlin shared the news on the Ellen Degeneres show this morning, stating:
“I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS [Television Distribution, which distributes the show], and it’s been successful,” she said. “Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS sort of felt, I think, they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program,” she said. “Because now they have 25 years of reruns. So what they decided to do was to sell a couple of years’ worth of reruns. But I’m not tired, so Judy Justice will be coming out a year later.”
As Judge Judy mentioned, not all is lost for her fans. Judy ustice will be coming out soon!
