Debmar-Mercury's THE Wendy Williams SHOW premieres its fourth season in national syndication on September 10 in high definition and from the first episode, viewers are going to see changes to the show that will make their favorite daytime star even more must-see than ever before.
Audiences will notice straightaway that things are different this season when they see Wendy step onstage to vibrant set enhancements. Incorporating Wendy's signature colors, pink and purple and lots of glitz and glamour, Wendy's modernized set will serve as a fitting backdrop to the larger-than-life sense of fun and the energetic personality that she brings to daytime TV.

"It's season four and 'The Wendy Williams Show' feels more energetic than ever," said Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein. "Audiences can sense that Wendy's having fun; and viewers and affiliates are responding to that enthusiasm."
"I am so excited to be in this beautiful new studio and doing what I love," said Williams. "There have been so many hot topics this summer and I can't wait to talk about them with my audience."
