NEW YORK -- Television personality Sara Haines is returning to her co-hosting seat on 'The View."

The Emmy-award winning daytime talk show will welcome Haines back to the panel on Tuesday, Sept. 8, for its 24th season.

Haines joined "The View" in 2016 and left in 2018 to co-hosted ABC News' "GMA 3: Strahan, Sara & Keke."

"I grew up watching 'The View,' and what this show stands for -- different women, different backgrounds and different points of view --- just speaks to my soul," Haines said. "I feel like I caught a shooting star twice. To once again be a part of the dialogue where I can share, discuss and disagree alongside these powerful and strong women is a tremendous honor. I feel very lucky."

Haines previously served as a correspondent for ABC News. Prior to joining the network in 2013, Haines was part of the fourth hour of NBC's "Today Show" from 2009 to 2013.

This week, "The View" fans can expect appearances from former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former aide to first lady Melania Trump Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, actress Jane Fonda, "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts and more.

Season 24 will premiere with the majority of the co-hosts appearing from home and Haines broadcasting from the show's New York City studio.

The Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of ABC and this station.
