Whoopi Goldberg signs on for another year of 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg Returning to 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg has re-upped her contract with "The View" for another year, the host announced Monday.

After extended negotiations, Goldberg announced on Twitter that she has officially signed on for the 2016-17 season of the ABC daytime talk show, and "will continue 2 annoy some, delight others."

As TheWrap previously reported last month, Goldberg had been planning to leave the show at the end of this season, but experienced a change of heart and agreed to stay on for at least another year.

Goldberg's new agreement is likely a relief for the network, as "The View" heads into yet another period of transition going into Season TK. Last month, co-host Michelle Collins was sent packing after just one year on the show as regular co-host. Sara Haines, frequent guest co-host and weekend edition anchor on "Good Morning America," will reportedly join the show full-time.

ABC has not yet announced its intentions for two more current panelists, Raven-Symone and Candace Cameron Bure. Joy Behar – who sat out two seasons earlier this decade – is the sole remaining co-host from "The View's" original incarnation in 1997.
