ET was first on the set of The View since the ladies heard the announcement that they'll be back for a 20th season!

Moderator Whoopi Goldberg told ET that the show's creator, Barbara Walters, was the first to deliver the exciting news.

"When she came to tell everybody, she said, 'You know we thought it was never going to last,'" Goldberg shared.

Well, more than 4,000 episodes later, The View certainly shows no sign of slowing down, so naturally, ET's Jennifer Peros was curious as to what makes the current co-hosts (Goldberg, Paula Faris, Michelle Collins, Joy Behar, Candace Cameron Bure and Raven-Symone) click so well.

"Medication," Behar joked.

Peros had the honor of guest-hosting on the webstream, After the View.

The show's renewal comes after several months of changes to the panel. As former co-hosts Rosie O'Donnell, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace made their departures, viewers welcomed Bure, Faris, Collins, Raven-Symone and Behar, who made her return to the show just two seasons after her initial exit.

Goldberg currently holds the title of the program's longest-running on-air talent.

The View airs weekdays on ABC.
