Despite the ongoing investigation into her alleged "toxic" work environment, Ellen DeGeneres is returning to television. For the better part of a year, The Ellen Show has faced accusations from current and former employees that they've been subject to harassment, racism, and sexism. Following an exposé by Buzzfeed, it was reported that Warner Bros had launched an investigation into the claims. Top executives have been relieved of their positions and while the future of Ellen was unclear, DeGeneres has come forward to say that the show will return on September 21 for its 18th season.
