ABC Extends Re-Do of ‘The View’ From Hosts to Set

NBC’s “Today” has its “Orange Room,” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” has its “Social Square.” Now “The View” is getting similar treatment.

ABC said the late-morning talk show would add an “on camera social media station” when its season debuts Sept. 15, part of a near-wholesale makeover taking place at the show in the wake of the departure of its co-creator, Barbara Walters. While longtime host Whoopi Goldberg remains, the network has opted to remake the rest of the panel, with Rosie O’Donnell returning to the show to create a “chemistry” the network said will be “both electric and undeniable.”

As part of the proceedings, the show will get a new studio and set, and the show will have a different color scheme and logo — the first time it will have a significantly updated branding mark since it launched in 1997.

The network declined to name the panelists who would join Goldberg and O’Donnell, saying only, “Stay tuned.”
