The Wendy Williams Show will air through 2022 thanks to a two-year contract renewal.

The nationally-syndicated talk show host said she's excited to continue doing what she loves.

The news comes on the heels of a tumultuous year for the 55-year-old. In January she took an extended leave of absence due to health issues. Then, her husband Kevin Hunter left as the show's executive producer. Williams announced they were divorcing after 22 years of marriage.

The Wendy Williams show includes a mix of interviews with TV, film, music, and sports celebrities.

The show is now in its 11th season. It airs on WPTV at 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
