“THE WAIT IS OVER! Season 13 starts MONDAY. You don’t wanna miss it!” the show’s official Instagram account posted on Tuesday.

This all comes only two weeks after Wendy Williams was initially rushed to the hospital for "psychiatric issues." As Radar previously reported, she was rushed to the hospital on September 14 mere hours after announcing she tested positive for a breakthrough COVID case, all on top of already facing ongoing health problems.

"While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19," the statement posted to her Instagram read. "To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th."

Following her hospitalization, Wendy’s brother, Tommy Williams, released a video on social media updating fans on his sister’s condition and progress.

“It’s not an easy fight. It’s not one that individuals always win. Sadly, come November, we are on the anniversary of my mother’s passing," the talk show host’s brother said in the video.

“I really do believe and have the faith that Wendy’s going to make it. We’ve been hit just like other families. You know it’s not easy, but you got to dig yourself out, you got to hold on to the memories and we have some good ones.”

Wendy has been released from the hospital and was seen in a wheelchair with bruises on her leg. She was also caught smoking a vape pen, despite her Covid diagnosis.
