Is The View's recent game of musical chairs about to come to an end?

Candace Cameron Bure and Good Morning America Weekend co-anchor Paula Faris are nearing deals to join the ABC talk show as co-hosts, according to sources.

They would join recent additions Raven-Symone and Michelle Collins, as well as veteran co-host Whoopi Goldberg. The flurry of new faces follows the exits of Rosie O'Donnell and Rosie Perez, who paid a tearful farewell to the show on July 21. Nicolle Wallace will not return full time for season 19. It remains to be seen whether she will choose to return occasionally as a guest co-host.

There are two weeks left of season 18, and an announcement regarding on-air talent is not expected before the end of the season.

Faris has been with ABC News since 2012, while Cameron Bure has been a frequent View guest co-host this past season. The actress, who also is starring in Netflix's upcoming Full House revival, quickly has become known for her conservative opinions, which were formerly the calling card of Wallace and, before her, Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Although production already has begun on Fuller House in Los Angeles, Cameron Bure would have to juggle the two gigs for her first few months on The View.

The addition of the duo would put The View at five co-hosts an increase of one from season 18.

ABC declined to comment.
