Elizabeth Wagmeister Senior CorrespondentSunny Hostin is staying put at the most dramatic table on television.Hostin has inked a multiyear, multimillion-dollar deal to continue as co-host on “The View,” Variety has exclusively learned.

The renewal deal will take Hostin through Season 28 of the ABC daytime show, which she currently co-hosts with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sara Haines — all of whom will be returning next season.ABC declined to comment on Hostin’s deal.As Variety previously reported, “The View” is expected to cast former Trump staffer Alyssa Farah Griffin as a co-host next season, which begins in September, filling the conservative seat on the panel that has been vacant ever since Meghan McCain left the show in 2021.

Insiders say Farah Griffin’s official announcement is imminent. (This week, “The View” has been teasing a new co-host announcement in on-air promos.) Hostin has been a co-host on “The View” since 2016.

With her new deal at “The View,” Hostin will continue to appear in special projects for ABC, such as “Soul of a Nation,” and provide commentary on shows like “20/20,” “Good Morning America” and “Nightline.”A lawyer, author, journalist and television personality, Hostin joined ABC News as a legal correspondent and analyst in 2016, a few months before she was named co-host on “The View.” Prior to ABC, her television career began with frequent appearances on Court TV, Fox News and CNN.
