Judge Judy is ending after 25 seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Judy Sheindlin appeared on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she shared the news.

"I've had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS [Television Distribution, which distributes the show], and it's been successful," she said. "Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS sort of felt, I think, they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program."

However, the court show judge said she isn't done yet. She said a new series, Judy Justice, will be coming out about a year after the final season.

Sheindlin is the highest paid television personality, earning $47 million a year.
