Wendy Williams' Talk Show Renewed for Three More Seasons

The daytime series will stick around through at least 2020.

As the merry-go-round of daytime talk shows continues to spin, never short on causalities, the standards remain. Following a similar renewal for Live With Kelly and Michael, The Wendy Williams Show is sticking on the air through 2020.

Distributed by Debmar-Mercury, like also-renewed Celebrity Name Game, Williams' talk vehicle has been renewed through the 2019-20 season to air in syndication on Fox Television Stations. “We are truly grateful,” said Williams. “Let’s get it.”

The renewal will bring Wendy through season 11.

“Wendy’s across-the-board strength in the demo most important to advertisers has made this talk show an indispensable part of stations’ daytime schedules," said Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus. "With these renewals, our valuable station partners can be assured this key lynchpin of their lineups will continue for many years to come, especially when it comes to having a powerful and dependable entertainment lead-out from many of their important morning news blocks. None of this would be possible without Wendy’s extraordinary talent and ability to captivate millions of loyal viewers each day.”

Williams' daytime foray was a rare success when it first tested in 2008. She places top in her time slot in many markets, including New York and Los Angeles.
