Sherri Shepherd is reportedly heading back to her old stomping grounds as a rotating host on "The View," reports Daily Mail.
Sources say the 48-year-old comedienne has inked a deal with ABC to return to the daytime talker on a part-time basis beginning this fall. The new concept comes as the series continues to struggle in the ratings game.
Shepherd left the long-running series in August 2014 after seven seasons with the show. She made her return on May 28 as a guest host and was met by rave reviews from ABC execs.
"Though the show was taped in advance and Whoopi Goldberg was out dealing with the death of her brother, everyone was blown away by how Sherri brought the energy of a live broadcast to the taped show. She had been so missed by the producers that many of them cried when she walked in the building," a source told Daily Mail.
Shepherd will reportedly be joined by rotating hosts that will include fashion expert Stacey London, model Molly Sims and conservative actress Candace Cameron Bure.
Insiders say ABC will reveal its plans for the new concept before "The View" goes on hiatus during the first week in August.
