Even Ellen DeGeneres is getting a Netflix special, maybe and probably

Everybody and their mother is getting a Netflix special, even comedians whose previous claim to fame was a single half hour on Comedy Central 15 years ago. Netflix has since reached out to Ellen DeGeneres -- the daytime queen -- for her own special. Corresponding over Twitter, the two sources exchanged cagey tweets about a special.

Nothing is set in stone but, given Netflix's penchant for bringing people back into the standup world, there's a chance it could happen. DeGeneres's last special was in 2003 (Here and Now) with the previous one being in 2001 (The Beginning). Both were for HBO.
