The Ellen DeGeneres Show nodded to multiple reports of a toxic workplace culture in its announcement of its Season 18 premiere on Tuesday.
“I can’t wait to get back to work and back to our studio. And, yes, we’re gonna talk about it,” DeGeneres herself said in a statement. The show will return on Monday, Sept. 21st, and will be filmed at the Warner Bros. lot but without an in-studio audience.
Newly-minted co-executive producer Stephen "tWitch" Boss is also set to guest-host episodes during the new season, the show announced, while not specifying when Boss will host.
