Is Elisabeth Hasselbeck Returning Back as Co-Host on ‘The View’?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck made a buzzy return to The View yesterday after nearly 10 years since she left her permanent spot at the Hot Topics table. Hasselbeck was back on the daytime talk show and wasted no time sparring with her co-hosts during the Wednesday (Aug. 3) episode, where she clashed with Whoopi Goldberg over the ethics of abortion and brought some props along with her.

After whipping out a tea towel and some Post-It notes to make her points, Hasselbeck caused quite the stir amongst View fans, who either couldn’t stand to see her back on their screens or lobbied for the Survivor alum to fill the spot left empty by former co-host Meghan McCain.

Regardless of whether they loved or loathed Hasselbeck, most View audience members were united in one question: will she return? Here’s everything you need to know about Hasselbeck coming back to The View.

Is Elisabeth Hasselbeck Returning to Co-Host The View?

Hasselbeck was back on The View for an Aug. 3 episode, but The View has not confirmed or denied if she will return for today’s show or make an appearance on Friday’s episode. Regardless, her cameo on Season 25 will be pretty short — this season of The View wraps up for good on Aug. 5. Decider has reached out to a rep for The View to confirm how long Hasselbeck will co-host, but did not hear back by time of publication.

Who Is the New Co-Host of The View?

Could Hasselbeck be back to co-host The View for good? Early reports indicate her permanent return is pretty unlikely. Although the show has yet to announce an official new co-host for Season 26,  The Daily MailPeople and Variety all reported that Alyssa Farah Griffin has been chosen as Meghan McCain’s replacement for the upcoming season.

When reached for comment by Decider, a rep for The View did not confirm or deny the rumors of Griffin’s hiring, saying in a statement, “We do not have a co-host announcement to make at this time. Stay tuned.”

We won’t have to wait too long, though. The View is set to announce their next co-host on today’s show, starting at 11/10c on ABC. Here’s everything you need to know to watch The View‘s exciting casting announcement.
