Word is out that Warner Bros. has cancelled Judge Mathis. The syndicated series will come to an end later this year after 24 seasons.

In the show, former Detroit-area district court judge Greg Mathis presides over real cases in his TV courtroom while keeping things light with a generous dose of humor. His decisions, though, are legal and binding. A regular segment called 'Ask Judge Mathis' answers viewer questions with advice regarding legal situations.

On the air since 1999, Judge Mathis is the second longest-running court program to run continuously behind only 'Judge Judy.' Judge Greg Mathis is also the longest-running Black male host on TV. In 2018, the show won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program.
