The Wendy Williams Show is coming to an end. The daytime talk show will air its last episode on Friday, and the show will wrap without host Wendy Williams. She has not appeared on the current season of the show due to illness, and viewers have seen a number of guest hosts, including Leah Remini, Michelle Visage, Whitney Cummings, Michelle Buteau, Michael Rapaport, Bill Bellamy, and Sherri Shepherd.
Per Variety, a spokesperson for the talk show said the following:
“The final original episode of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ will air on Friday, June 17th with a video tribute to the iconic host. The series comes to an end after 13 successful years in syndication.”
This fall, Shepherd will launch her own show, Sherri, replacing The Wendy Williams Show in many markets. The new series will keep the Williams showrunner, executive producer, and some familiar segments, like “Hot Topics”. A premiere date for Sherri will be announced later.
