"The Wendy Williams Show" will be around for years to come.

Debmar-Mercury announced on Tuesday that it renewed the "The Wendy Williams Show" through the 2016-17 television season on Fox Television Stations. Ratings for the nationally syndicated show has shown steady growth in recent years. The news follows Debmar-Mercury's announcement that "The Wendy Williams Show" would extend its production schedule into the summer months.

Speaking of the show's success, Fox Television Stations senior vice president of programming Frank Cicha said, "Over the last few years, ['The Wendy Williams Show' has] evolved into the ideal lead-out to our morning news blocks. Like our news, the show delivers a day/date immediacy that serves as a blueprint for where we want to be the rest of the day."

Williams has a busy couple of months ahead of her. In addition to taping more shows from her New York City studio, the talk show host will also star in "Chicago: The Musical" on Broadway for seven weeks. She will play the role of Matron Mama Morton.
