Wendy Williams announced that The Wendy Williams Show, which has been off the air due to the novel coronavirus, is set to return with all new shows this fall.
The queen of daytime television reported her reign will continue by stating: “The 12th season of WENDY starts SEPTEMBER 21!!! I can’t wait to get back to all of YOU and to my AMAZING staff and crew!!! I’m sooo excited to bring you silly, funny, glamour and hopefully brighten your day during these crazy times that we’re all living in…even if for just an hour.”
Williams shared that she was excited to resume filming and missed serving daily hot topics with the audience she lovingly refers to as her cohosts.
“I miss you and can’t wait to get back in my purple chair and show you what we did to the set. I L💜VE you for watching,” she concluded on Instagram.
Williams’s announcement comes after she previously revealed that her remote show, Wendy @ Home, would be “taking a break” and that she would be returning when the Manhattan studio opens.
New York, where her daily talk show is produced, recently entered phase four of its COVID-19 pandemic reopening plan and began allowing media production and filming indoors.
This progression allows the show to leave behind the virtual format it had adopted as a safety measure.
The show will be produced in person but with enhanced safety restrictions. The studio will not be filled to capacity and social distancing measures will be implemented.
