Wendy Williams will be returning to host her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, on Monday, March 4 following a two-month hiatus.

The 54-year-old stepped away from the show back in December after experiencing complications due to her Graves’ Disease.

However, on Thursday, February 21, the show’s production company announced her return.

“Wendy Williams is an incredible talent with the most unique voice in daytime. We can’t wait to welcome her back to her iconic purple chair on the set of her show,” production company Debmar-Mercury said in a statement.

“We so appreciate all of the guest hosts and panelists who filled in for Wendy during this time. These people are, and always will be, true family to the show. And we want to thank all of the loyal and supportive fans who have been with us for 10 years now.”

Williams also announced her return in a statement on Thursday, February 21.

“Salute to Debmar-Mercury for believing from the start and thanks to my staff for tirelessly holding it down for me,” she said.

The host is taking a hiatus from hosting to focus on her health.

Williams’ last show was on Friday, December 21. She then went on a week-long hiatus, but that unfortunately turned into a two-month departure.

A number of celebrities have filled in for Williams during her break, including Nick Cannon, Jason Biggs, Michael Rapaport, and Jerry O’Connell.

Her family released a statement regarding her health back in January and revealed she even needed to spend time in a hospital.
