Lionsgate TV has extended Wendy Williams’ contract until 2022, according to Deadline.

“Wendy has become a major force in daytime talk and we are thrilled to know she will be dishing out her daily dose of hot topics and entertaining conversations on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ for many years to come,” Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, producer & distributor of The Wendy Williams Show said in a statement to Deadline. “The incredibly strong ratings she has built over the past six years are a lasting testament to her abilities and staying power in an incredibly competitive environment.”

While The Wendy Williams Show hasn’t been renewed as of yet, a “personal services” contract between Lionsgate and Williams and strong ratings, means there’s a good chance the daytime talk show will also continue also for another seven years.
