Love it or hate it – “The View” is coming back for a 20th season.

In addition to the renewal, ABC also announced this morning that Candi Carter has been promoted to executive producer, becoming the first African-American to hold the title at the daytime talk show.

“This season ‘The View’ has once again been at the very heart of the political conversation and cultural conversation in America,” said James Goldston, president, ABC News. “Candi and the team have worked tirelessly to make ‘The View’ the place to be heard for an impressive roster of celebrities, politicians and people in the news.”

“It’s an honor to be part of the extraordinary legacy built by Barbara Walters, the exceptional, funny and smart women at the table led by Whoopi Goldberg and a terrific team behind the scenes,” added Carter. “Every day is a thrill.”

Carter joined the show last August serving as the interim showrunner after a 15-year run at “the Oprah Winfrey Show” as senior/supervising producer, among other posts.
