“The Wendy Williams Show” season premiere has been delayed at least two weeks after Williams, who was vaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19.
“While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19,” the show announced in a Wednesday Instagram post. “To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover … we expect to begin the 13th season of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ to begin on Monday, October 4th.”
The announcement comes five days after the show posted that Williams, 57, was experiencing ongoing health issues and would “not be able to complete her promotional activities.”

The 13th season was expected to return Sept. 20. Instead, reruns of previous seasons will air until Williams returns.
