The View Season 26 is back soon. The trailer came out on Monday, August 22. The ladies are ready to return to the big table. The daytime talk show is currently on hiatus. However, that hasn’t stopped fans from sharing what changes they liked to see take place in the new season. Read on to learn more about the new promo and to see the clip for yourself.
Whoopi Goldberg shares thoughts on cast shakeup
The countdown is officially set. The View shared the teaser for Season 26, which returns on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 on social media. The talk show promises big changes like “new views” and “new co-hosts.” Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin will join the show as the full-time permanent hosts.
Whoopi Goldberg shared her thoughts on the cast shakeup. She admitted that they’re very much a “family.” She referred to her co-hosts Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, and newly-announced Ana and Alyssa. Whoopi also called them “the gutsiest women on TV.”
The show is back with a new attitude. As TV Shows Ace previously, Ana walked out with fists in the air. She looked like she was ready to start a fight. Joy then warned the fans, “This is The View so watch out.” She called it a “unique show,” despite influcing many others over the years.
Barbara Walters first started the show in 1997. The former TV journalist wanted to have a group of women sit around the table and discuss different topics. The ABC daytime series also doesn’t shy away from politics. The View went on hiatus this summer after wrapping up its 25th season.
Around the time, producers announced that Ana and Alyssa would take over Meghan McCain’s position when the show returned in September 2022. Reviews have been mixed. Most fans are happy to see Ana finally join the table. However, they feel that the former White House Speaker is too “problematic” for the long-running talk show.
Alyssa worked under the Trump administration. She left the position to become a political commentator on CNN. Alyssa previously expressed her gratitude to join The View. She feels that she found a platform where she can “bring a new perspective.”

The View Season 26 has a new attitude
The ABC/Disney-produced show hopes to have a new attitude in the upcoming season. The promo teased that there will be plenty of celebrity guests. Fans have wondered which guests are scheduled for September. They want U.S. Representative Liz Cheney to be on the panel.
She is expected to be a guest later this year. The show promises to fill the void with the two anti-Trump conservatives they already have. Both Alyssa and Ana have been outspoken about his presidency and what it’s left behind.
“When you make the decision to be on TV, you need to know who you are, know what you believe in, and you need to be able to defend it with conviction because you’re going to be challenged,” Ana told Decider.
In an interview with People, Alyssa says she promises “not [to] add to the division.” She feels that she “learned a lot” from working with the former president and will use that for her new position. What are your thoughts on Season 26 of The View? Sound off below in the comment section.
