ABC announced Tuesday that Behar would be joining previously announced new hosts Candace Cameron Bure and Paula Faris for the upcoming 19th season. Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins and moderator Whoopi Goldberg are staying on the panel, and Sherri Shepherd and Molly Sims will make occasional appearances as guest hosts.
Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez both left the show at the end of Season 18.
"Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in," Behar, who was a co-host on The View for its first 16 seasons from 1997 until 2013, said in a statement. "But I'm happy to be back home. And I'm looking forward to sticking my two cents into the hot topics, especially now that Hillary and the Donald are in the spotlight."
Season 19 of The View kicks off on Tuesday, Sept. 8. Are you excited that Behar is back?
