Behar, who was one of the last remaining original cast members, Barbara Walters being the last original member of the show. Behar will make her departure after this season is over (her contract expires in August). “It seemed like the right time,” she said. “You reach a point when you say to yourself, ‘Do I want to keep doing this?’ There are other things on my plate I want to do — I’ve been writing a play, I’ve been neglecting my standup.”

It is  unclear if Walters will make a return next season and Elizabeth Hasselbeck may not make a return either but the shows’ Rep told TVLine, “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract.”
