"I can't wait to get again to work and again to our studio".
Now, DeGeneres has confirmed she'll be back in the studio for Season 18 of the show next month, and she will address the claims against herself and the producers during the first episode.
Season 18 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show is slated to begin on September 21.
Executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman, as well as co-executive producer Jonathan Norman, departed the syndicated daytime talk show last month following the allegations, as reported in BuzzFeed in July, which also include harassment by top execs on the show.
Tiffany Haddish will be part of DeGeneres in studio on the "Ellen" stage on the Warner Bros. lot, although it is going to movie with out an in-studio viewers amid the continuing coronavirus disaster. DeGeneres has offered multiple apologies to her staff as new stories emerged about the mistreatment.
TVNZ, who screens the USA daily talk show on TVNZ1, has been contacted for comment over when - and if - New Zealand viewers may see the new season.
DeGeneres' statement was seemingly referencing the backlash she (and the show) have faced in recent months. This comes as the host has been under fire while facing complaints about the workplace culture at her show. The internal workplace review has so far resulted in the ousting of three producers.
Stephen "tWitch" Boss, a longtime guest DJ on the show and among those who have publicly supported DeGeneres, will guest host some fall episodes. The Variety report also states that Kerry Washington, Alec Baldwin, and Chrissy Teigen will make guest appearances throughout the week. Other guests, including Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, Adam Sandler and Orlando Bloom, will appear throughout the month, according to the outlet.
She said: "Anyone who knows me knows it's the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case", DeGeneres wrote in a social media post.
