DeGeneres confirmed her Netflix special last May, after a Twitter exchange with the streaming service.

"Earlier this week, I got a tweet from the people at Netflix and I have good news and bad news," DeGeneres told the audience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show just one day later. "The bad news is they wouldn’t tell me what happened to Barb on Stranger Things, but the good news is they asked if I was interested in doing a stand-up special. I said I’m going to have to think about it and then 30 seconds later I said yes. Exciting!"

"I'm excited for you to see it," she gushed before adding, "And now each one of you get to Netflix and chill with me."
