“The View,” currently in its 27th season, has taken a short summer hiatus! 

If you tuned into July 1’s broadcast, you might have noticed that instead of a new episode, the talk show premiered a rerun of the previous episodes. The main reason for the marathon was that talk show hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Alyssa Farah Griffin, and Ana Navarro are currently on a break to celebrate the week of the Fourth of July!

Due to this, new episodes of the show are anticipated to air on Monday, July 8 on ABC. Their last appearance together was on the morning of Friday’s episode (June 28), where they sat together to weigh in on the first 90-minute televised presidential debate between the 45th president Donald Trump, and the presiding president Joe Biden, which took place in Atlanta on Thursday, June 27.

It has been reported (via Entertainment Weekly) that when “The View,” returns tomorrow the co-hosts are set to welcome a number of guests, beginning with “The Bachelorette,” Season 21 lead Jenn Tran, who has defined her journey in the dating show as one-of-a-kind. While speaking exclusively with US Weekly, Jenn, 26, said, “This season definitely breaks the mold in a lot of different ways.”

She also added how much the experience has left an impression on her, “I never saw myself as the Bachelorette because, for me, the Bachelorette [is] someone who’s so confident, so poised, is articulate, can emotionally emote and can be vulnerable. I just didn’t know if I could do all that.”

Most recently, during her recent interview with Alex Cooper on theCall Her Daddy,” podcast, the reality television star accidentally slipped the results of her season of “The Bachelorette.” Though Tran did not say the name of which contestant she ends up with, she did reveal that she’s now engaged. “I didn’t know once you get engaged,” Tran shared in the interview. 

Upon realizing she might have just given a spoiler to the listeners, she quickly backtracked on her comment by correcting herself, and saying “Once you find love, you can’t take a shot.” To this, Cooper, 29, simply added, “I’m hoping , I know you’re not wearing a ring, but, like, we’re obviously hoping you’re engaged if that was what was meant to be.”

The other star guests who will be featured in the new episodes will include Governor Gretchen Whitmer for the July 9 episode, followed by Michael Douglas on July 10, and Naturi Naughton for the July 11 episode. To add a cherry on top of this exciting update, while the ladies are taking their break, the viewers won’t have to wait around for new interviews! 

In addition to this, the network has recently confirmed that they have planned out a schedule to compensate for the lack of new episodes, which happened five days a week and featured spectacular guests, and debates surrounding some of the hot topics, which led to the show being labeled “the most important political TV show in America” by The New York Times. 

According to ABC, the lineup of episodes that aired for the week of July 1 to July 5, is listed below: 

  • Monday, July 1, 2024: Jeff Daniels (aired on May 2)
  • Tuesday, July 2, 2024: Tiffany Haddish (aired on May 7, 2024)
