Ellen Degeneres is coming back to Netflix for her last and final stand-up special and is going to address many of the things said about her over the years.

The last comedy special titled “Relatable” came out six years ago.

This new installment will mark her second special alongside Netflix and will come in later 2024. It will be produced by Ben Winston and Fulwell73.

DeGeneres will also be kicking off a multi-city comedy tour starting June 19 in San Diego.

“To answer the questions everyone is asking me – Yes, I’m going to talk about it. Yes, this is my last special. Yes, Portia really is that pretty in real life,” DeGeneres said in a statement.

Robbie Praw, VP of Stand-Up Comedy Formats at Netflix stated, “There is nobody quite like Ellen. She is a true legend and pioneer in so many ways. We can’t wait to bring fans another one of her hilarious comedy specials later this year.”

Many assume the statement is referring to her exit from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” after allegations of a toxic workplace. Three executives from the show were fired as a result after an internal investigation was conducted.


Ellen DeGeneres is a television icon and entertainment pioneer best known for hosting 19 seasons of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The show earned 64 Daytime Emmy® Awards including 12 for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show, crowning it the record holder in this category.

She is one of the top 25 most followed celebrities on social media reaching more than 300M fans.

In February of 2022, Ellen DeGeneres marked the four-year anniversary of the creation of The Ellen Fund with the official opening of the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund located just outside Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. Since its opening, the award-winning campus has served as a catalyst for conservation action for gorillas and the surrounding biodiversity. The campus has hosted over 40,000 visitors and more than 7,500 local school children have participated in field trips to the campus.

DeGeneres was recently honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, by President Obama for her extraordinary contributions to notable change and progress in the United States.

In addition, Ellen DeGeneres’ passion and commitment to animals was featured in the two-hour special, Saving the Gorillas: Ellen’s Next Adventure, on the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Max and discovery+.
