Even though Ellen DeGeneres cracks us up daily on the Emmy-winning Ellen, it’s been more than a decade since her last stand-up special. Thanks to Netflix, that’s about to change.
The pair’s announcement came in the form of a Wednesday Twitter exchange that sent fan reeling on the social network.
Looks like it's been 15 years since you did a stand-up special, @TheEllenShow. How about one for Netflix?

DeGeneres’ last stand-up special, “Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now,” premiered on HBO on June 25, 2003, and it looks like DeGeneres shares our opinion that it’s been long enough.
“It has been 15 years since I did a stand-up special. 15 years,” DeGeneres said in a statement provided through Netflix, HuffPost reports. “And I’m writing it now, I can’t wait. I’ll keep you posted when and where I’m gonna shoot my Netflix special. I’m excited to do it; I’m excited for you to see it.”
