Wendy Williams cannot wait to be back in the studio again! The "Wendy Williams Show" host excitedly revealed the premiere date of the 12th season of her show.

Wendy Williams is all set to grace the TV screens from her studio again. Her show is scheduled to return for its 12th season this September.

The host said she is pretty thrilled to get back to her "amazing" staff and crew members and promised to bring "silly, funny, glamour" to brighten up her fans' days amid the pandemic. She further wrote:

"I miss you and can’t wait to get back in my purple chair and show you what we did to the set."


Last month, Williams' fans were concerned after she announced that she will be taking a hiatus from the show until the state of New York gave permission to resume it from the studio.

Williams allegedly hated working from home and quarantine had been pretty hard on her. 


The 55-year-old was hosting the show from her apartment but decided to take a break because of the complications she was facing due to Graves' disease. 


According to what the show production sources told "The Sun," Williams allegedly hated working from home and quarantine had been pretty hard on her. 


The source further told the publication that she was mentally in a bad place and was struggling to host the show from home, saying:

"She’s been struggling with it more behind the scenes than her audience realizes and it got worse the week before her announcement."


Wiliams previously claimed that nothing makes her happier than being herself in "The Wendy Williams Show." Her rep told "PEOPLE" at the time that her Graves' disease was causing fatigue

It was not the first time that Williams took a hiatus from the show. In 2018, she decided to take a break from work and revealed that she was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and Graves' disease 19 years ago.
