The Wendy Williams Show is never going away. Williams’ production contract has been extended through 2022—three years longer than the Kardashians’ deal with E!.
According to Deadline, Lionsgate TV recently extended Williams’ contact for seven years, though the show itself has only been renewed through 2017. Williams also has a contract with Discovery to host the new-ish show Death by Gossip With Wendy Williams on the Investigation Discovery channel, owned by Discovery Communications.
With all of these deals in the works and Discovery investing in Lionsgate TV, it’s fair to say the Wendy Williams Show, its thirst for gossip and its penchant for questionable advice will be in your life for some time.
