The production company Telepictures, which is a unit of Warner Bros. Television, said in a statement that it had paused filming until January.

The talk show, which films in Burbank, Calif., has been a staple of daytime television since 2003.

After shifting to virtual audiences amid the pandemic, Ms. DeGeneres had resumed filming with a limited live audience in late October. Attendees were required to wear face masks and sit six feet apart.

Ms. DeGeneres had faced accusations of leading a toxic workplace earlier this year, after BuzzFeed News published an article in July in which former staff members said they faced “racism, fear and intimidation” on collection. Warner Bros. revealed an examination, 3 manufacturers left the program, as well as Ms. DeGeneres asked forgiveness on cam as well as to staff members.
