‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Renewed for 12th Season Amid Hiatus


Wendy Williams misses her fans and cannot wait to get back to the studio to host "The Wendy Williams Show."

The talk show has been on hiatus since shutting down in response to the spread of the coronavirus.

Williams took to social media to say hello to her fans while awaiting an official return date for taping Season 12. She explained how production needs permission from New York state officials confirming that they can film in an actual studio.

"I got the love and the boyfriends and all that other kind of stuff, I'm in my house, but what I want most is to be with you," she said.

In March, the 55-year-old made an appearance on "The Dr. Oz Show" and opened up about the tough decision to suspend her talk show.

“I got a telephone call, honestly, and the phone call was, ‘Wendy?’ I was like, ‘What? What am I doing wrong now?’ I always think I’m in trouble. They said, ‘We’re all shutting down everything, all the networks. Nobody is going to be doing new shows. We want all the hosts to be well,'’’ she recounted.

Despite the mandate, Williams was hoping to continue doing her show without an audience or any production staff. While the show has been on a hiatus, Williams said she is eager to return to her fans and confessed she would go on the air immediately if she could.

“The Wendy Williams Show” was renewed this fall through 2022, reported Page Six.
