Someone is actually sticking around The View.

Whoopi Goldberg on the Red Carpet

Following months of contract negotiations and public speculation, Whoopi Goldberg has announced via Twitter that she will return for the show's 20th season.

"Ok NOW it's official, I have re-upped for 1 year returning to @TheView 4 the 2016/2017 season," Whoopi wrote earlier today, adding:

"Will continue 2 annoy some, delight others."

At least she knows her audience and her standing with them, right?

Goldberg, of course, has been one of the few steady cast members on The View over the past several years.

That show changes panelists more often than Kim Kardashian changes filters on her Instagram account. (Or some better metaphor.)

As it currently stands, Joy Behar and Paula Faris are already committed next season, while regular contributor Sara Haines is in talks to join the round table.

There's no word yet on the statuses of Raven-Symoné or Candace Cameron-Bure, however.

Just last month, meanwhile, it was announced that Michelle Collins would be leaving the program.

She became the latest series casualty in the process. Just consider:

Rosie O'Donnell has come and gone twice over the last few years.

Then there was Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, neither of whom lasted very long.

But they at least stuck around longer than Rosie Perez, who was on the show for approximately 129 minutes.

Are you glad Goldberg is staying? Are you upset? Could you not care any less?

And can you imagine the ratings increase if one of the following stars snagged a seat at The View table?
