“The Wendy Williams Show lives forever!”: Wendy says she’ll be returning to TV screens this fall


Though she’s been M.I.A from TV screens since her departure from her long-running daytime talk series, The Wendy Williams Show, last September, Wendy Williams says she’ll make a comeback this fall. 

While reportedly out and about at a Met Gala after party in New York City on Monday night, TMZ reporters asked Wendy about the prospect of her returning to TV.

“So will you be back on in September? Yes, no, maybe so?” she was asked, to which Wendy responded, “Yes! Yes!” As she walked away hand in hand with Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee, she raised her arm in the air as if she was excited to make the declaration.

Beyond Wendy’s declaration, there are no further details about her return. 

A months-long hiatus away from her trademark purple chair last year prompted The Wendy Williams Show to be canceled after 13 seasons and the announcement of The Sherri Shepherd Show to take its place. And while it’s unclear if she’ll return to her famous New York set to once again ask the audience member co-hosts, “How you doin’?,” Williams tells TMZ, “The Wendy Williams Show lives forever!.”
