ABC has extended its deal with Whoopi Goldberg as moderator of its morning talk show “The View.

Goldberg and the network has signed a four year deal that includes the current 25th anniversary season and will run until Season 28.

Goldberg has been with the show for 15 seasons and hosts alongside Joy Behar, Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin.

Signing Goldberg was likely seen as a key part of settling on a talent lineup for a show that’s notoriously famous for playing musical chairs with its hosts.

Goldberg’s renewal comes on the heels of Meghan McCain’s exit the previous season. The network has yet to name a replacement for her — instead opting to use a rotating cast of guest co-hosts to presumably “test the waters” on how they do.

Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.
