The View is calling upon an old friend to help reboot the show this fall.

ABC News announced former co-host Joy Behar will rejoin the franchise when season 19 begins Sept. 8 on ABC.

Joining her at the table will be actress Candace Cameron Bure (Fuller House) and Paula Faris, the co-anchor of Good Morning America Weekend. The women will sit alongside moderator Whoopi Goldberg, as well as Raven-Symoné and Michelle Collins. 

“As The View embarks on a remarkable 19th season, I am extremely proud to see the legacy of smart and diverse women engaging in entertaining and thought-provoking conversation continue,” said creator and executive producer Barbara Walters in a statement.

Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in,” added Behar. “Plus, Steve was getting tired of applauding every time I gave my opinion. But I’m happy to be back home. And I’m looking forward to sticking my two cents into the hot topics, especially now that Hillary and the Donald are in the spotlight.”

The View also hired a bunch of contributors to shore up the chatfest, including former host Sherri Shepherd. Padma Lakshmi, Stacy London, Ana Navarro and Molly Sims.
