‘The Wendy Williams’ Show Has Been Cancelled, Sherri Shepherd To Take Over
The Wendy Williams Show is said to be closing up shop.
After months of speculation, Love B Scott reports that The Wendy Williams Show is officially no more. The show is slated to wrap up this June. By fall 2022, guest host Sherri Shepherd will fill the slot with her own show. Sources close to production told the website:
“The producers informed everyone that the [Wendy Show] was being canceled at the end of June. Then in the next breath they hired everyone to work on the new Sherri show.”
Wendy recently posted content on a new Instagram account, marking the end of her role as the “Wendy Show” page manager. As of today, that account is still running and production announced that Sherri is returning as a guest host.
In a new video, Wendy stated:
“I want to get back to New York & get on down with the Wendy Williams Show!”

It’s unclear what’s next for Wendy, who hasn’t hosted her self-titled talk show since she fell ill in July 2021.
Just a few weeks ago, it was reported that Wendy would take back her purple chair if her health improved. Rumors also circulated that she didn’t approve of the changes.
The Wendy Williams Show premiered in 2008. The program saw Wendy Williams make her transition from famed radio show host to TV royalty.
