Wendy williams new season

It’s been a while since fans caught their favorite daytime host, a.k.a. the Queen of Tea Wendy Williams, on a new episode of her iconic talk show. But just because Wendy is taking some time for herself doesn’t mean folks should assume the worst. Despite the rumors you might be seeing, The Wendy Williams show is not canceled nor is it over for good.

The truth is, The Wendy Williams Show is simply on a summer hiatus and will start back up again on September 16, according to Wendy’s Instagram. Season 10 officially wrapped up on August 1, so Wendy and show’s crew will have about a month and a half break to enjoy the summer weather and gear up for more fun.

Just like The Wendy Williams Show, several other daytime talk shows are also currently on break, including The View (which returns September 3) and The Talk (which starts back up without Sara Gilbert on September 9). It’s pretty much par for the course for talk shows to go away for a bit and return in the fall along with several other big-network shows. So if you’re wondering why you keep seeing a bunch of reruns throughout the day, now you know why.

If the Instagram post doesn’t convince you, take Wendy’s word for it. As fans who watch the show every day can recall, Wendy herself confirmed that she would be back in September.

“I’m not doing this show forever, but I certainly will be back for season 11,” Wendy said. “A lot of people didn’t think we could do it, but we did it! September 16. I love you for watching, and I’ll see you next time on Wendy.”

Bottom line: Wendy isn’t going anywhere for the foreseeable future, so you can rest easy. And even though rumors spread earlier this month that employees at the show were “worried about the show’s future” and “looking for other jobs,” Wendy put all that hearsay to rest when speaking with the New York Daily News in mid-August.

“I like the rumor,” Wendy explained. “It makes me giggle. What I would like to do upon the completion of a successful stretch of Wendy is bow out on my own terms. Not get canceled but bow out on my own terms.”

And that’s all the tea for today.

‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Renewed Through 2021-22 Season on Fox Stations

“The Wendy Williams Show” is set to remain on the air through the 2021-22 season.

Fox Television Stations has handed Williams’ eponymous talk show a two-year renewal, extending the live, nationally syndicated show’s decade-long run to 13 seasons.

“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 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.”

Williams and her show have had a tumultuous 2019 to date, as the host had to take an extended leave of absence in January due to health complications after ongoing surgery for a shoulder fracture she said she sustained in December 2018. Williams returned to the show, distributed by Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, after six weeks away from the purple chair.

Debmar-Mercury recruited a number of guest hosts for episodes produced while Williams was on leave. The list included Nick Cannon, Keke Palmer and “Page Six TV” host and Variety correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister.

“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.

In April, it was revealed that Williams’ husband Kevin Hunter was leaving the show as an executive producer. The news came on the heels of the host’s announcement that she plans to file for divorce from her husband of 22 years. “The Wendy Williams Show” includes a mix of interviews with celebrity guests from television, film, music and sports.

UPDATE, June 12, 2019: Wendy Williams is reportedly taking a hiatus from her show and is expected to return on July 8. This comes after Wendy took a two-month long break earlier this year.

According to Hollywood Life, the longtime talk show host is going to use this time to “repair her life.”

“The break that Wendy is taking from her show couldn’t have come at a better time,” a source told the publication. “With all that has been happening with her family and her health, she needs this time to spend with herself.”

When GoodHousekeeping.com reached out to The Wendy Williams Show, they had no comment on her possible break.

In April, Wendy filed for divorce from her husband Kevin Hunter after two decades of marriage. Shortly after, Kevin was removed as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show. In the same month, Wendy announced on her show that she had moved out of a sober house that she had been living in.

We’re wishing Wendy a happy and healthy break.

UPDATE, March 29, 2019: After taking a two-month break and returning to the program on March 4, Page Six reports that Wendy will be going on a one-week hiatus starting Monday.

“The Wendy Williams Show will air repeats next week and resume taping new episodes the following week,” a spokesperson for the show said in a statement. “The Wendy Williams Show is taking a previously scheduled spring break hiatus and airing repeat episodes during the week of April 1st. The show will return with original episodes on April 8th.”

UPDATE, February 4, 2019:

Wendy Williams will not be returning to The Wendy Williams Show anytime soon. Wendy’s family released a statement updating her fans that she is currently suffering from Graves’ disease complications, and is in need of “strict supervision” from her physicians.

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune thyroid disease that affects approximately 1 in 200 people. Symptoms include anxiety, heat sensitivity, increased perspiration, and weight loss, among others. The 54-year-old host, who has been battling the disease for years, opened up on her condition in February of 2018. Back then, she took three weeks off from her show to get well.

Although Wendy’s return date remains unknown, she has announced the guest host lineup, starting off with Nick Cannon on February 4, who will be followed by these stars:

  • Jason Biggs, February 7
  • Keke Palmer, February 8
  • Sherri Shepherd, February 11 & 12
  • Michael Rapaport, February 13
  • Jerry O’Connell. February 14 & 15

“She’s doing great,” Nick told US Weekly during Super Bowl weekend. “It’s an honor for her to think that I can even step in for her, and she’s excited to get back as well. So we wish her nothing but the best and continue to pray for her.”

ORIGINAL, January 11, 2019: The Wendy Williams Show will resume on Monday, January 14, but without the tea-loving host.

A new episode will air with a panel of temporary hosts to help everyone get caught up with the latest gossip. Variety reports that Wendy Williams will make her formal return on Monday, January 21 — two weeks after the original date planned.

“To our loyal Wendy Watchers: To allow enough time for her shoulder recovery, Wendy will not return on Monday, January 21,” read an Instagram post on Thursday, January 10. “Starting this Monday, January 14 we will be LIVE with a week of panels of your favorite ‘Hot Talkers!’ We love you for watching!”

The show has been in reruns since December 24, after Wendy shared that she was suffering from a hairline fracture. After postponing her official return date from January 7 to the 14, fans were worried the show might have gotten canceled, but it looks like Wendy is just in need of a little more downtime.

Wendy Williams will be returning with all-new episodes of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, January 14, 2019. After fracturing her shoulder, Wendy is on the mend and wants to return pain-free and be 200%, delivering the best show that millions of viewers tune-in to watch.

“As she has for the past 10 years, Wendy delivers an incomparable live talk show day in and day out and we want to give her the best opportunity to heal and recover,” Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein told Variety. “Wendy has our complete and unwavering support and we look forward to her return to the iconic purple chair.”

We hope Wendy is doin’ well, and we are counting down the days until she makes what is now her highly-anticipated return.

‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Renewed Through 2021-22 Season

She may have had some slips and falls in recent times, but she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. According to Variety, The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed for the next two seasons.

The controversial talk show host made the announcement on her 11th season premiere. “Attention, Wendy staff and crew and everybody gather around,” she said, “and you on TV and you here. ‘The Wendy Show’ has been renewed through 2022. I love you!”

The former radio show host has had her share of grief in the past several months. She took a four-month hiatus due to medical reasons as she revealed that she was diagnosed with Graves’ disease and shortly after her return, she admitted that she had been living in a sober house. Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, left the show as an executive producer amid rumors of being unfaithful and impregnating his mistress. Williams has since filed for divorce.

“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.

Hosted by Williams, the talk show is produced and distributed by Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury and airs on Fox owned-and-operated stations. It averaged more than 1.6 million viewers per day nationally during its past season, including 440,000 in the target demo of women 25-54.

“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,” Williams said in a press release. “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!”

Over the summer, Williams opened up at Black Enterprise’s FWD conference about her estranged husband and former business partner, advising the live audience not to do business with a romantic partner. “Don’t do it,” she said. “Marry a cardiologist and you go on to be an engineer—make sure people support you but have your separate lives. When you come home you have more to talk about than business. Keep it separate.”

Wendy Williams has no time for disruptions while she’s hard at work.

The radio and TV mogul was taping her syndicated “Wendy Williams Show” on Tuesday when an audience member’s cellphone rang while the outspoken host was in the middle of her famous “Hot Topics” segment.

WENDY WILLIAMS TEARS UP DISCUSSING ESTRANGED HUSBAND KEVIN HUNTER

“Is somebody’s phone on?” Williams, 55, asked before barking at the perpetrator. “Get out! Get out! Turn that phone off now, sir, ma’am, whoever you are. Just, please, kindly.”

While the TV host’s reaction drew a mixed reaction of laughter and shock from the audience, Williams immediately reminded the crowd that “tickets are free,” and the only caveat in attending a taping of the talk show is that all cellular devices must be turned off before the filming begins.

The Emmy-nominated host and author slightly pulled back on the reigns after firing off at the disruptor and admitted that she “was being overdramatic” before once again asking her audience to silence their devices. “Thank you,” she added.

“The Wendy Williams Show” is currently airing its 11th season and has been renewed through 2022.

LIFETIME DEVELOPING WENDY WILLIAMS BIOPIC

Never one to hold her tongue, Williams has been taking her ex-husband and former business partner Kevin Hunter to task for reportedly having a baby with his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson. Last week, Williams threw shade in both of their directions during her anticipated “Hot Topics” segment.

“I used to say this as a joke on ‘Hot Topics’: Poke a hole in the condom and get pregnant, but that backfired on me, didn’t it?” she said, alluding to Hudson’s alleged love child. “Turnabout’s a fair game, I’m a fair game player and a straight shooter, too. Pow, pow!”

Williams then further shaded Hudson.

“Life is not what you think it is behind the scenes, trust me. Homegirl is miserable,” she said as she rocked a pretend baby. “In the meantime, I’m over here. That’s what you get!”

Williams filed for divorce from Hunter in April. The couple were married for 22 years and share a son, Kevin Jr. The two split because of Kevin Hunter’s reported infidelity.
