NEW YORK (AP) — “Judge Judy” will be ending, but Judge Judy isn’t going anywhere. Confused? Judy Sheindlin’s announcement Monday that her popular syndicated courtroom show will end production in 2021 sets the stage for her return in a different format even as her old show may not really go anywhere. The tough-talking former New York family court judge has ruled her television courtroom since 1996 and its popularity made her the highest-paid personality in TV. She announced on “Ellen” that next season will be her 25th and last making original episodes of “Judge Judy.” After that, the 77-year-old mediator will be making a new show called “Judy Justice” that will debut in fall 2021.
