“The View” is shuffling its lineup of co-hosts yet again, with Candace Cameron Bure becoming the latest panelist to exit the daytime talk show.
The “Full House” star announced her departure at the top of Thursday’s broadcast, citing her commitments to her Netflix spin-off “Fuller House” – with season two airing this week – and TV movie projects for The Hallmark Channel.
“The commute of going west coast to east coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well,” the actress explains. “I want to make sure that I am able to spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent.”
In a statement, Executive Producer Candi Carter says, “On behalf of everyone at ‘The View’, it’s been a pleasure working with Candace, a devoted mother, talented actress, and passionate co-host who never hesitated to speak her mind. We are thrilled for her success with ‘Fuller House’ and her Hallmark movies. She will always be a part of ‘The View’ family and we will gladly welcome her back to the show to support her with all of her endeavours.”
The move marks yet another shakeup in the long-running show’s lineup. The last few seasons have seen several co-hosts come and go, from Rosie O’Donnell’s brief return to the panel during season 18 to Raven-Symone’s recent announcement that she would depart to focus on the upcoming “That’s So Raven” sequel series for Disney Channel.
