Whoopi Goldberg is staying with The View!
The 61-year-old actress will be returning for season 21 of the ABC daytime talk show, ET confirms.
ET spoke with Goldberg at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City in May, where she said that she'd be at The View "for as long as I need to be."
"We have to just pay better attention to what's happening in the Congress and the Senate," she added of the show's political focus throughout season 20. "And if we can do that, we can sort of balance it, so that real people actually get taken care of."
Goldberg joined The View's 11th season in 2007. Season 21, which starts in early September, marks her 10th anniversary with the show.

Goldberg said her future with The View was unlikely last September. See more in the video below.
