What is Judge Judy’s net worth?

She reportedly makes $47 million a year from her show

Judy Sheindlin is ending her long-running daytime television court show after 25 years.

In March, she announced "Judge Judy" will cease production when her contract runs out in 2021 but lucky for the Emmy-winner, she has a reported $440 million net worth to enjoy after decades of hard work.

The 77-year-old Brooklyn native has been one of the highest-paid media personalities since breaking into the industry in the late 1990s.

Sheindlin pulls in roughly $47 million annually for hosting "Judge Judy," which she films for just 52 days a year and producing "Hot Bench," a courtroom show that debuted in 2014that uses a three-judge panel, according to Forbes' estimates.

In 2019, Sheindlin also claimed a spot on Forbes' coveted list of the country's most successful self-made women entrepreneurs and executives, measured by their net worth.

She also sold the rights to her enormous library of TV episodes for an estimated $100 million in 2017 to CBS. And although she might be stepping down from the "Judge Judy" bench, Sheindlin has plans for a new television show called "Judy Justice."

“I have had a 25-year long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful. Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary,” Sheindlin told host Ellen DeGeneres back in March. “And CBS, I think, sort of felt they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program because now they have 25 years of reruns. So what they decided to do was to sell a couple of years worth of reruns.”

"But I'm not tired, so 'Judy Justice' will be coming out a year later,” she teased. But in the midst of  the pandemic, production has been suspended on multiple new projects.
