BREAKING. The very final episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show to be broadcast in America on Wednesday 25 May.

The very final episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show in America will be broadcast on Wednesday 25 May, Harpo Studios in Chicago where the show is produced, just announced.

The Oprah Winfrey Show is shown on SABC3 in South Africa, by M-Net elsewhere in Africa and is seen in 145 other countries in the world. Oprah started its 25th and final ''Farewell Season'' last month on SABC3. That's after the public broadcaster said since late 2010 that it wanted to try and speed up the acquisition and broadcasting schedule of the current season so that Oprah could end in South Africa at the same time as in America. With only two months left until 25 May, SABC3 won't be able to catch-up in time.

Oprah Winfrey tweeted Thursday that she's ''hard at work planning the final shows''.
