Judy Sheindlin is known for being a retired Manhattan family court judge who has her own TV series on CBS. The show has audiences hooked as she oversees real small claims disputes within a replica courtroom set. Judy spoke on the Show about why the series is ending.

Why is Judge Judy ending?

Judge Judy will be clashing the gavel for the last season of her show after an astonishing 25 years, but there is more to come as she revealed on Ellen’s show.

She has planned another series called Judy Justice which is due to air in the near future.

Speaking to Ellen she said: “CBS sort of felt, I think, they wanted to optimally utilise the repeats of my programme.

“Now they have 25 years of my reruns. What they decided to do is sell a couple of years’ worth of reruns.

“But I’m not tired, so Judy Justice will be coming out a year later.”

An official reason for why the show is ending does not seem to have been given yet.
