“The Wendy Williams Show” is getting renewed through 2022.
Your favorite gossip queen will be on your screen officially through 2022, Fox announced on Monday. The live, nationally syndicated show has run for 13 seasons so far.
“I’m so excited to launch our 11th year by letting the world know I will continue to do what I love to do so much – and for a very long time,” said Williams. “I want to tell Fox and all of our stations today how much their support and confidence means to me. They should know we will never stop working very hard to bring our dedicated Wendy Watchers and audience ‘co-hosts’ the freshest national daytime television. I heart you for watching.”
It’s been a long year for the 55-year-old. Between her health issues and managing her divorce from her estranged husband Kevin Hunter, it was unclear at one point if Williams would return to daytime talk. But now, she’s back for at least two more seasons.
“Wendy is family to us, and post-AM news, her program jumpstarts the day in our markets. Plus, she’s got enough wigs to make sure the show never gets stale,” said Frank Cicha, executive vice president of programming for Fox Television Stations of the renewal.
