Talk show host Wendy Williams is going to be part of the Fox family for a long time.

Her syndicated series “The Wendy Williams Show” has been renewed by the Fox TV station group through 2016-17, marking a three=year pickup coming off a strong ratings month in May. According to Deadline, the three-year pickup will bring Williams’ run on daytime television to eight seasons.

“Fox’s long-term renewal is a testament to the incredible growth the show has experienced this season and the amazing talent of Wendy,” Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus said in a statement to the site.

According to Fox, Wendy was the only talk show throughout syndication to see year-to-year growth in Nielsen ratings.
