“We have so much planned to honor this amazing platform that Barbara Walters created,” the statement added. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off that celebration than by welcoming the co-hosts back to the iconic View table and to have them in front of a live studio audience again.”

The line-up of guest co-hosts includes former secretary of state under President George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice, CNN host S.E. Cupp, former Republican Utah congresswoman Mia Love, CNN analyst Mary Katharine Ham, former Fox News host Eboni K. Williams and former communication’s director with President Donald Trump, Alyssa Farah, among others.
The former Fox News host joined in 2017 and repeatedly generated headlines, as she went head-to-head in heated arguments with her co-hosts as the outspoken, conservative voice. She announced she was leaving in July.
The new season kicks of September 7 and will be the first time the show will be back in studio in New York City since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
