During an interview, when Williams was questioned about if she will make a comeback in September, the celebrity responded with an enthusiastic ‘of course’.

Wendy Williams took an extended leave from The Wendy Williams Show amid her battle with Graves’ disease and other unrevealed health reasons.

The host was assumed to return to the talk show in the fall of 2021 however she did not come back.

Multiple guest hosts filled in for Williams during her absence. One of them was The View co-host, Sherri Shepherd. 

Earlier this year in February it was announced that the 54-year-old actress will permanently replace Williams. It was further revealed that Shepherd would get her talk show named Sherri which will have the same time slot. The new series is slated to debut this year in September.

Back in 2008, The Wendy Williams Show made its debut on Fox stations. While Williams has stated that she would make a television comeback, many fans are deluding that she would host a podcast instead.
