The View will be even more contentious from now on!

ABC officially announced on Tuesday that former Fox News star, conservative-leaning Abby Huntsman, will join the morning talk show next week, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 4, after Labor Day.

But it's not news to readers, who read about Huntsman's upcoming move to The View earlier this month!

As reported, Huntsman replaces conservative Sara Haines, who earlier announced her departure from The View.

Huntsman, 32, is the daughter of Jon Huntsman, Jr., the former Republican Governor of Utah who currently serves President Donald Trump as U.S. Ambassador to Russia.

And she's sure to clash with The View's loud liberal voices, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sunny Hostin!

The former co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend also will join co-host Meghan McCain.

Meghan, the daughter of recently deceased Senator John McCain, is a Republican advocate on the morning talk fest.

Haines' final appearance on The View will be on Sept. 3, as she leaves the panel to co-host GMA Day, alongside Michael Strahan.

Huntsman said in a statement, "I couldn’t be more be excited to return to my professional roots at ABC News. I look forward to adding my own point of view to the most interesting and successful talk show on television today. Joining the women at ‘The View’ really is a dream come true!"

This 22nd season of The View will feature a celebration of Behar's 20th year and various guests, including Stormy Daniels, Wendy Williams, Kristen Bell, America Ferrera, Ricky Gervais, Taraji P. Henson, and Mariska Hargitay.

Being conservative-leaning on The View isn't easy! As reported last year, Jedediah Bila quit The View after just one year as a co-host.

And even guests who aren't Democrats have trouble in the era of Trump. This summer, Fox News star Jeanine Pirro got into a shouting match with Goldberg that shocked viewers of the morning show.
