Fans of The View have been missing the ladies this summer with their takes on the latest “Hot Topics.” Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Meghan McCain took time off from the show and viewers are eagerly waiting for their return. Fear not, ABC has officially confirmed when the panelists will be back on the air this summer.
When will ‘The View’ be live again?
There’s no better way to get a pulse on how America feels about a certain issue than by watching The View. Millions of viewers watch the political analysts debating on the latest happenings from the White House during this critical time in the world.
After taking time off for the 4th of July, the ladies did not return for new episodes the following Monday. Instead, the co-hosts took time off to spend with their families for a whole week. This is the reason why the ABC talk show aired reruns last week.
Good news for everything though, The View will be back live starting on Monday, July 13. The show shared a teaser of all the guests they have lined up starting next week and they include Amy Schumer, Khloe Kardashian, Tiffany Cross, and DL Hughley.
This comeback will be the last stretch before the end of season 23. The ladies will take a month-long break in August and will return to kick off season 24 at the beginning of the TV season in September.
What are fans saying?
After the promo clip was shared on Twitter, fans were quick to share their reactions for the return of the ladies.
“I always look forward to seeing the ladies,” a fan tweeted.
“Ugh, we’ve missed y’all,” a viewer replied. “Thank you and please continue to stay safe.”
“I was extremely upset not knowing their opinions on everything that happened in the past week,” a Twitter user mentioned.
However, not all viewers were ecstatic over the guests The View had lined up, particularly the Kardashian sister.
“Ugh, just what I need to see, a Kardashian,” another fan noted.
“Any plastic Kardashians is gut-wrenching and not looking forward to Meghan’s rude tantrums either,” another viewer added. “So annoying how she just talks over anyone making it her platform only. Other than that, Love this talk show and happy they will be back.”
Some other fans were questioning where Ana Navarro was and some suggested they wanted Sarah Haines to return.
“I would like to see Sara Haines back at the table since her show was canceled,” another Twitter user noted.
“Where the heck is Ana Navarro? Every Friday. Preferably every day, especially now with broadcasting from home. This is a huge opportunity with the run-up to the conventions and the elections.” another fan said.
‘The View’ continues to broadcast from home
Upon the show’s return with live episodes, the ladies will continue to broadcast from home. Executive Producer Brian Teta recently opened up about shifting gears and producing the show from home.
“I mean, each of the steps that have happened I have been thinking if you’d asked me three months ago, I would’ve thought were impossible without a [live studio] audience. It turns out we can,” Teta told CNN.
“Joy might’ve been the first talk show host to step away from the studio itself, that was big. It took us a little while to figure out how to get her set up at home and then next was not having an audience, which ‘The View’ has had for 23 years.”
The View airs weekday mornings at 11 a.m. ET and 10 a.m. PT/CT on ABC.
