Judy Sheindlin, one of US daytime TV's biggest stars, has revealed her long-running CBS show Judge Judy will end next year after 25 seasons.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the 77 year-old said she would launch a new show on another, unnamed network in 2022.
CBS has yet to comment on the multiple Emmy winner's departure.
According to Sheindlin, CBS is seeking to utilise repeats of Judge Judy, instead of commissioning further series.
Since 1996, millions of viewers have seen Sheindlin pass judgement on real-life small claims cases.
More than 5,000 episodes of the show have been broadcast since its inception and Sheindlin is now the highest-paid personality on US television.
