Dr. Phil McGraw is all set to wrap up his daytime talk show, "Dr. Phil," after 21 seasons.

The show first aired in September 2002 on the CBS network. The ongoing 21st season will come to an end later this year.

The 72-year-old TV personality released a statement Tuesday, saying he has been blessed for more than 25 years in daytime television.

McGraw first appeared on television in "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 1998 before starting his own talk show in 2002.

"With this show, we have helped thousands of guests and millions of viewers through everything from addiction and marriage to mental wellness and raising children," he said, ET Online reported. "This has been an incredible chapter of my life and career."

McGraw went on to reveal he was leaving the daytime show so that he could pay attention to other projects such as the primetime show, which will be announced soon.

"I am compelled to engage with a broader audience because I have grave concerns for the American family," McGraw added. "And I am determined to help restore a clarity of purpose as well as our core values."

In the wake of McGraw's decision to end the show, the president of CBS Media Ventures, Steve LoCascio praised the daytime host, noting they were looking forward to working with him in the future.

"Phil is a valued partner and member of the CBS/King World family, and while his show may be ending after 21 years, I'm happy to say our relationship is not," LoCascio said, People reported.

He added, "Phil changed the daytime landscape as the force behind one of the most popular talk shows ever on daytime TV. We plan to be in the Dr. Phil business with the library for years to come and welcome opportunities to work together in the future."

Considering McGraw's upcoming project, he will host a talk show, titled "Mystery and Murder: Analysis by Dr. Phil," which will take a deep dive into real crime cases and share his in-depth analysis. The release date of the show has not been announced yet.

Aside from doing his own talk show, McGraw has appeared on several talk shows. He previously appeared on "The Talk" show from 2011 to 2022 as a guest co-host. He also runs a podcast series, "Phil in the Blanks," which was first launched in 2019.

McGraw's popularity also made him part of several popular TV series such as "Hannah Montana," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "The Simpsons." He was also featured as himself in 2006's movie, "Scary Movie 4."
