"The Ellen DeGeneres Show” is returning on Monday, April 6, after a 21-day break due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The show will continue on with remotely produced episodes filmed at Ellen’s home amid social-distancing regulations.
“Since going into quarantine two weeks ago, I’ve been doing my show at home every day. But only for Portia. Starting Monday, you’ll be able to see it too, and I can’t wait,” Ellen DeGeneres said.
Initially, Ellen tweeted that the show would return on March 30; however, that was delayed as a result of the spreading pandemic.
