A source told PEOPLE in February: “Wendy won’t be returning to the show for the rest of this season” — though one month later, Williams told Good Morning America about her plan to return. “I’m going to be back on the Wendy show,” she said. “Bigger and brighter than ever.”
In October of 2021, ahead of the talk show’s 13th season premiere, Williams’ breakthrough COVID-19 case, and her ongoing health issues tied to Graves’ disease delayed its initial return. The premiere episode was delayed once more to October 18, 2021, despite Williams’ recovery from COVID-19. Since the show has had several guest hosts with the fan favorite being comedian Sherri Shepard.
