The View: Whoopi Goldberg signs on for another year
Whoopi Goldberg is sticking around The View for at least one more year, the star announced Monday.
“Ok now it’s official, I have re-upped for 1 year returning to The View [for] the 2016-2017 season,” Goldberg wrote on Twitter. “Will continue [to] annoy some, delight others.
Goldberg’s announcement comes hot on the heels of Michelle Collins’ exit last month. A replacement for Collins has yet to be announced, and it’s unclear if current panelists Joy Behar, Raven-Symoné, Candace Cameron Bure, and Paula Faris will all return with Goldberg in the fall.
The Oscar winner joined the panel back in 2007, replacing former moderator Rosie O’Donnell after her dramatic year-long gig. The comedian’s tenure has seen the most co-host changes in the show’s history, including the departures of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara Walters, as well as short-termers Jenny McCarthy, Rosie Perez, and (briefly, again) Rosie O’Donnell.
