"I have great affection for Rosie and we have remained in contact through the years," Barbara Walters said in a statement. "I am happy to welcome her back to the program. She is always a lively and engaging guest and a part of the show's successful history."
O'Donnell was a co-host for the daytime series from September 2006 until May 2007. Just weeks after she announced she wouldn't be renewing her contract, O'Donnell asked to leave early following a tense on-air confrontation with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The two feuded over the war in Iraq and instead of cutting to commercial, producers aired the fight and put the two side by side on-screen. O'Donnell never returned to the show after that day. Hasselbeck exited the show in 2013.
Will you tune in for Rosie's return?
