Judge Judy has landed herself a new US$95 million (NZ$130.9 million) television deal - and she doesn't have to do a thing.

According to The New York Post, Judge Judy Sheindlin sold her entire 10,400-show archive back to CBS as part of a deal to extend her contract through to the 2020-21 season.

Judge Judy has run for 21 seasons, and the extension will bring the 70-year-old retired Manhattan family court judge and global TV star through to her 25th. CBS' purchase comes just two years after the network sold the library to Sheindlin in conjunction with her latest renewal.

Sheindlin reportedly earns around US$45 million (NZ$61.9 million) per year.

The show has run with CBS from its beginning and is sold internationally in 150 countries.
