Ellen DeGeneres took to social media to thank fans for years of support.

She did so posting a photo of her taken on set as they taped the final episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Note the show debuted in 2003.

It has won more than 60 Emmy awards.

Ellen wrote in her post, “Today we taped the final episode of The Ellen Show which airs on May 26th.

“When we started this show in 2003, the iPhone didn’t exist. Social Media didn’t exist. Gay marriage wasn’t legal.

“We watched the world change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not.

“But whatever was happening, my goal was always for the show to be a place where we could all come together and laugh for an hour.

” Being invited into your lives has been the greatest privilege of my life and has brought me incredible joy. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,” she ended.

It was May last year when the comedian confirmed through an interview that the show will end after its 19th season.

Recall that several Pinoys made their mark on the show including Jake Zyrus, Arnel Pineda, Rhap Salazar, Zendee Rose Tenerefe and Marcelito Pomoy, among others.
