It looks like The Wendy Williams Show will be around for quite some time.
The show has been renewed through the 2019-2020 season, according to an announcement made on Tuesday by Debmar-Mercury. The renewal means that the show will run through its 11th season.
Wendy Williams was moved to tears discussing the news backstage after Wednesday’s show.
Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, Co-Presidents of Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury said in a statement, “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. 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.”
Frank Cicha, SVP of Programming, Fox Television Stations, said, “It’s for three more years? I thought it was longer!”
Williams herself added, “We are truly grateful. Let’s get it!”
